Maine proposed a bill that would legalize psilocybin therapy and another bill that decriminalizes all other illicit drugs. The state of Texas is exploring expansion for its severely limited medical cannabis program, and New York wants to prepare students and professionals for the cannabis industry.
Texas could soon be liberated from cannabis prohibition
And psilocybin therapy might be coming to Maine
This is Lo with Veriheal keeping you up to date with the latest in cannabis news
Lawmakers in the state of Maine have introduced a bill that would legalize psilocybin therapy
What’s remarkable about this bill is that there won’t be a medical diagnosis requirement
and it would allow adults 21 years and up the ability to purchase and use psilocybin products under the supervision of a practitioner who specializes in this kind of therapy.
The measure is designed to be similar to the one that was passed in Oregon back in November
Maine’s proposed bill includes a 15% tax on sales and would legalize manufacturing in a vertically integrated model, and establish formal guidelines such as possession laws, product testing, and standards for providers.
A separate bill has already been filed that decriminalizes all illicit drugs and instead reduces penalties to a civil fine that can be waived with a health assessment.
With many states making efforts to reform their antiquated drug laws, we look forward to what’s to come for Maine.
Next in news,
a new House bill in Texas could expand the state’s restrictive medical cannabis program to include more patients and raise the state’s comically low THC limit
The measure would allow for more qualifying conditions such as cancer, all forms of PTSD, not just combat-related, chronic pain, and any debilitating conditions that severely impact one’s quality of life.
This would be a game-changer for many Texans!
This measure would seriously open up the entire market and allow for more patients the legal freedom to pursue alternative therapy.
The bill passed the state’s House vote and now awaits for the Senate to vote.
Be sure to stay tuned because this would be monumental for the state of Texas
Higher education has taken on a whole new meaning for the state of New York
Since legalization, many state colleges and universities have added cannabis courses to help educate and prepare people for the state’s new workforce that’s projected to be a multi-million dollar industry by 2025.
These courses aren’t just to learn how to be a grower or budtender either
Professionals in industry sectors such as healthcare, law, finances, science, and business are all encouraged to become educated as well
The landscape is certainly changing for cannabis and it’s reassuring to see states become determined to support a plant that has long been persecuted.
With cannabis education becoming normalized, it won’t be long before the stigma is completely broken.
