The most cannabis-friendly Congress in history is back from its August recess, and lawmakers are already making key moves to advance marijuana reform legislation.

Over 100,000 certified signatures have been submitted to the Secretary of State’s office in an effort to legalize marijuana.

The Republican chair of the Senate Banking Committee said on Thursday that his panel will hold a vote on legislation allowing banks to service state-legal marijuana businesses this year.

President Donald Trump again said that his administration is allowing states to set their own marijuana policies.

Once a politically dangerous subject, legal marijuana has become something of a de facto platform plank for the 2020 Democratic candidates.

Americans are twice as likely to say that alcohol is “very harmful” than say the same about marijuana, according to a survey released on Monday.
