Marijuana Tomorrow

Episode 53 - Is Everything Just A Joke?

April 30, 2021

This week we take a look at the latest news in the US Senate, after last week’s passage of the SAFE Banking Act in the House. And then we turn our attention to the newly announced Federal Cannabis Regulations Working Group which released its Principles for Federal Cannabis Regulations & Reform, outlining what a federal regulatory framework—grounded in justice and social equity—should look like.  And finally, we’ll look back at how we all spent this year’s 4/20 holiday and what some of the nation’s late night comedians had to say about our national holiday.
