Law & Crime

California endorsed a rule Wednesday that will allow home marijuana deliveries statewide, even into communities that have banned commercial pot sales.

Marijuana could take the next step toward joining pinot noir, craft beer and hazelnuts on Oregon's list of famous exports, under a proposal likely to go before state lawmakers in the new year.

President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday he disagreed with a decision by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reverse a policy that eased federal enforcement of marijuana laws, saying it sowed confusion in the marketplace and harmed businesses that had invested money.

Medical marijuana patients caught a break last week when state regulators increased the amount of pot cardholders can buy in one shopping trip to 8 ounces, after officials cut the limit to 1 ounce in August on suspicion of nefarious purchases being made.

Opioid addiction, autism, general anxiety, chronic anxiety, depression and insomnia were selected Wednesday for more study as qualifying conditions for medical marijuana in Ohio.

The rollout of statewide medical and recreational marijuana programs typically is a grindingly slow process that can take years. Not so in Oklahoma, which moved with lightning speed once voters approved medical cannabis in June.
