Delta-8 brouhaha creates cannabis opportunity in next federal Farm Bill
There is a growing push in Washington DC for Congress to consider cannabis reform during Farm Bill discussions, according to multiple lobbyists and a federal lawmaker who spoke with MJ Biz Daily.
An Oregon Democrat told the publication that the Farm Bill “absolutely poses a path forward” for otherwise stymied federal cannabis reform, which could include the SAFE Banking Act.
Although past attempts to package cannabis reform measures with broader bills have failed, renewing the Farm Bill remains among the pressing items on federal lawmakers’ 2023 to-do lists.
South Carolina medical cannabis legalization bill clears first committee stop
Marijuana Moment reports that a South Carolina Senate committee has approved a bill to legalize medical cannabis in the state, with tweaks that are meant to avoid procedural problems that derailed an earlier version of the reform last year.
The bill, which will now head to a floor vote, would allow patients to access cannabis from licensed dispensaries if they receive a doctor’s recommendation for the treatment of qualifying conditions.
Kevin Caldwell of the Marijuana Policy Project told the publication: “We hope to see the Senate again pass this critical bill. The House of Representatives should make sure that the legislation is heard and voted on its merits.
“The people of South Carolina have consistently shown that they support legalized medical cannabis and deserve to see this legislation debated in both houses of the legislature.”
