A new law will soon bring major enhancements to Hawaii's medical marijuana program. Starting next year, medical marijuana patients from the continental United States will be able to buy medical cannabis at Hawaii dispensaries.

As of Monday, the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission was considering 63 license applications that included all four of the required packets of information.

Andrew Lelling reiterated Tuesday that fighting the opioid addiction scourge remains his priority because it's still claiming thousands of lives in the commonwealth each year.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) has introduced legislation to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has denied a request from an anti-legalization group to place marijuana and its derivatives on a list of restricted substances that are not "generally recognized as safe and effective."

Stricter rules on testing, packaging and labeling of products loom large for the state’s pot industry, possibly weeding out smaller players.
