The Hawaii Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved a bill that would legalize marijuana for adults over the age of 21.

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.

Newly empowered congressional Democrats reportedly plan to hold a House hearing next week on marijuana businesses’ difficulties accessing banks - signifying renewed momentum for cannabis issues on Capitol Hill following years of blockades by the former Republican leadership of the chamber.

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 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.
