Arizona officially began recreational cannabis sales this last week
Setting a record for the quickest state to go from vote approval just this past November to a functioning program as of January this year.
As of right now, only Curaleaf, Harvest Health, The Mint, and Territory dispensaries are open for adult-use products but several more are expected to open in the near future.
Next in news,
Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer stated that cannabis reform is going to be a top priority when legislative sessions begin
He emphasized that it will be included in the agenda for racial justice and that cannabis is a huge topic that encompasses both racial and economic issues
The senator was quoted saying
“I’m a big fighter for racial justice, and marijuana laws have been one of the biggest examples of racial injustice, and so to change them makes sense. It fits in with the movement now to bring equality. Our bill is, in a certain sense, at the nexus of racial justice, individual freedom and states’ rights.”
The California Bureau of Cannabis Control has mandated the removal of cannabis billboards on interstate highways and within 15 miles of the state border.
Back in November, attorneys filed a public interest lawsuit on behalf of a parent who believed the billboards were unlawfully exposing his children to cannabis,
This is a violation of Proposition 64, California’s Adult Use Marijuana Act.
This ban is similar to the one that prohibits tobacco advertisements in an effort to protect children and teens
In its notice, the bureau announced that no new billboards are allowed on any highways that cross the state borders
And any existing billboards must be taken down.
About 35 of California’s highways will be impacted by the ruling
