The number of states with legal marijuana is expected to jump significantly in 2019, and a slew of already-filed bills offers a look at what those new legal cannabis systems might look like.

Gov. Gina Raimondo will propose within the next week that Rhode Island legalize the sale of marijuana for recreational use, she said.

Less than a month into the 116th Congress, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in the House and Senate have introduced four bills that, if signed into law, would require the VA to conduct research on medical marijuana.

In a hat tip to marijuana culture, lawmakers on Capitol Hill have officially reserved the number H.R. 420 for a bill that would dramatically change federal cannabis laws.

Newly inaugurated Florida governor Ron DeSantis came to Central Florida Thursday afternoon to call for an end in Florida's ban on smokable medical marijuana.

The governor-elect takes office at a significant moment in Colorado for the cannabis industry.
