Cannabis at the Capitol Seige Riot
If you haven’t been living under a rock recently, you’re probably very much aware of the incidents that occurred in DC last week.
In an attempted insurrection, several rioters stormed the DC Capitol as Congress was certifying Biden’s win in the presidential election.
Many of these participants have been identified and are now undergoing intense investigation.
And another rioter who live-streamed the siege has been identified as both a shareholder in multiple cannabis farms and an owner of a cannabis consultant firm in Oklahoma.
In an interview with NewsWest9, she vehemently insists that what she did was legal and will continue to stand by her choice in conduct.
Even though cannabis is legal in Washington DC, it’s still absolutely illegal to possess and consume cannabis on any federal premises.
For about a century now, cannabis has long suffered an unshakeable stigma
And these defiant actions at the Capitol did nothing but support it.

Texas May Consider Expanding its Medical Cannabis Program in 2021
Following cannabis’ wild success in 2020, 2021 may prove to be another winning year as more states are stepping up to the cannabis legalization plate.
New York, Rhode Island, hopefully, New Jersey, and Virginia are just a few of many.
And according to top lawmakers in the state, Texas, of all places, is planning on following suit with intentions of expanding its very restrictive medical cannabis program.
The state’s current program is so severely restrictive that many don’t really consider it to be a legitimate medical cannabis program at all.
However, in the past, the state has expanded the conditions to qualify as a patient in a very slow incremental crawl.
Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R)insists that while the state is not currently interested in California’s model where cannabis is so freely accessible,
Moving forward to broaden the medical program for Texans is not off the table.
What are your thoughts? Do you think Texas will move forward with this? Let us know!
