When voters in conservative Oklahoma approved medical marijuana in 2018, many thought the rollout would be ploddingly slow and burdened with bureaucracy. Instead, business is booming so much cannabis industry workers and entrepreneurs are moving to Oklahoma from states with more well-established pot cultures, like California, Colorado and Oregon.

House May Vote On Legalizing Marijuana Next Week Recreational marijuana is on its way to becoming legal on a national level. The House Rules Committee has announced it will conduct a hearing on the matter this Monday, after which the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act could be sent to the House floor for a vote. The bill seeks to remove weed from the list of federal controlled substances and do away with criminal penalties for using or possessing it. Do you think pot will soon be legal nationally?
