Some state officials who were tasked with regulating legal marijuana have moved to private sector jobs like consulting and lobbying, according to The Hill. Andrew Freedman and Lewis Koski, former marijuana regulators in Colorado’s state government, are now consultants for state and local governments looking for help with regulations.
Trump has said marijuana policy should be up to the states, but that was on the campaign trail. Will he stay true to his word?
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9, 2016 /Weed Wire/ — California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada voted to end marijuana prohibition and Arkansas, Florida, and North Dakota adopted medical marijuana laws.
DENVER, Nov. 1, 2016 /Weed Wire/ — MassRoots, Inc. (OTCQB:MSRT), one of the largest technology platforms for the cannabis industry, is pleased to announce that during October 2016, it raised $250,000 for marijuana legalization campaigns and non-profits across the country.
The Marijuana Policy Project has endorsed Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson for president. “We don’t take a position—and we therefore don’t take into account a candidate’s position—on other issues, such as abortion, guns, gay rights, Iraq, taxes, or Social Security,” Rob Kampia, Executive Director of the Marijuana Policy Project, said.
Advocates in Ohio are taking another crack at marijuana reform. According to Cleveland.com, the Marijuana Policy Project is spearheading a campaign to legalize medical marijuana in the state.
This is a coalition effort that will hopefully resemble the coalition effort in Maryland, which is the best example of how organizations across the political spectrum can join together to reform a state’s marijuana laws.
So thinks Rob Kampia, Executive Director of Marijuana Policy Project. In a recent interview with MJINews, Kampia indicated that he sees the potential for plenty of activity for legalization advocates and marijuana investors.
When there is money to be made, the bitterest of adversaries can discover common ground. So it is with the alcohol and marijuana industries, and the place to watch all this play out is Nevada.
Progress is not given, it is earned. The 2014 MJINews Power Activists know this all too well. The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws began the organized drug law reform movement in 1970, inspiring activists across the nation.
Yes, in Nevada, 2016 has already arrived. A petition drive to get full legalization on the 2016 ballot is in full swing. Furthermore, supporters only have until November 11, 2014, to collect 101,667 signatures, and success is not at all certain.
After you, my dear Alphonse. That, according to an October 7, 2014, webinar, hosted by MJ Freeway and featuring the Marijuana Policy Project’s Executive Director, Rob Kampia, has been the position of many cannabusinesses.

In 2010, California tried to become the first state to legalize the sale and use of recreational marijuana. Given that California was also the first state to legalize medical marijuana, it only seemed natural that they become the first recreational state as well. Unfortunately, Californians failed to pass the bill, garnering only 46 percent of the vote. Now, Californians are ready for round two and hope to legalize marijuana in 2016.
