Several staff members in the White House were either suspended or asked to resign over past cannabis use
This comes as a bit of a surprise considering that just last month, the administration released a new policy that would ease restrictions for new hires who had a prior history of drug use
Typically, any history of drug use would severely diminish your chances of getting hired for a federal job and that seemed to be on its way out with the past
But just as federal cannabis reform legislation make its way through Congress such as the SAFE Banking Act, Biden’s crew terminated several staff for past cannabis use.
It almost seems as if White House staffers were tricked into divulging their past usage since the prior statement suggested that it wouldn’t be a disqualifier.
Even several presidents have even admitted to using cannabis among other harder drugs in the past.
So, this certainly is not sitting well for those looking forward to the cannabis reform to what Biden and Harris promised on the campaign trail.
Next in news,
a Chicago suburb in Evanstown, IL is using cannabis tax revenue to fund reparations for the Black community
This program is designed to help compensate Black residents for suffering discriminatory housing policies.
Those who led the measure indicated that there are significant gaps in education, wealth, and opportunity
and that something needed to be done to mitigate the effects of redlining that still exist today.
Leaders indicated that,
“We want to preserve our existing Black residency, which helps us preserve our diversity. In addition, it will include bringing repair to families and returning citizens with a particular focus on those that have been impacted by marijuana arrests,”
Illinois has been a heavy hitter in the way the state has handled cannabis reform
The state expunged thousands of cannabis convictions and generated half a billion dollars in revenue in its first year of legalization.
New York is one step closer to legalizing recreational cannabis use!
Lawmakers have finally come to an agreement in negotiations about impaired driving
And expect to release a new bill in the next few days!
The issue that needed resolving was whether or not these violations should be treated as an infraction or misdemeanor.
While it still remains unclear what the outcome is going to be, the legislation will likely include additional taxes towards law enforcement training for identifying impaired driving
How roadside tests will be administered is a whole other can of worms.
But stay tuned for what’s next in New York!
