Amid signs of a renewed push this year to legalize recreational pot in New York state, activists in the city have formed a new organization to lay the groundwork for an orderly, inclusive marketplace -- and avoid some of the problems that have beset legalization in other regions.

Thanks to the new laws in Michigan and Illinois, the Midwest is no longer a recreational marijuana desert. But what does that mean for the region?

A growing aspirational niche is making its way into mainstream retailers.

As a growing number of states legalize cannabis, health officials are increasingly sounding the alarm for technology that can quickly determine when drivers are stoned.

More legalization in more states. More product liability risks. More regulations. More M&A. More of many things is what insurance professionals involved in the cannabis industry can expect in 2020.

Medical marijuana delivered to your door. Recycling of marijuana product packaging. A “hospitality” license. These are some of the changes going into effect in Colorado’s marijuana industry on Jan. 1, the state’s Department of Revenue announced on Tuesday.
