In our ASA's Patient-Focused Update, Chief Science Officer Dr. Jahan Marcu Ph.D. and Policy Analyst David Mangone join me to discuss the need for cannabis lab certification and the recent movement in Congress on bills benefiting medical marijuana patients.
In Drug War Data Mining, Drug Policy Alliance has a new guide for lawmakers explaining how to better frame and talk about issues surrounding drug policy reform.
Our Northeast Cannabis Chronicle features Jared Moffat from Regulate Rhode Island, discussing why his group and others are boycotting the creation of a state marijuana legalization study commission.
And in the Radical Rant, I expose yet another way Jeff Sessions wants to turn back the clock on drug policy reform by reinvigorating "equitable sharing" and "adoptive forfeitures" that expand civil asset forfeiture.
