Tuesday’s state and local elections across the U.S. saw several gains for the marijuana reform movement, as well as some potential setbacks.

Former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said on Monday that the federal government should regulate state marijuana programs.

The Senate approved spending legislation on Thursday that extends a provision protecting medical marijuana states from federal interference.

Another group of senators is calling on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to expediently implement regulations for CBD in order to protect consumers and free up the industry.

Two Pennsylvania state senators introduced Senate Bill 350 in Harrisburg on Tuesday which would allow adults 21 and older to possess, cultivate and purchase cannabis from licensed retailers.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) revealed on Wednesday that he will be meeting with governors from throughout the region next month to coordinate marijuana legalization plans.
