This week we’ll take a look at Natalie Fertig's new story in Politico Magazine, detailing the many industry tensions over federal legalization, as the MORE Act is set to receive a markup vote in the House this week.  And then we’ll look at the latest FBI data on marijuana arrest rates in 2020. And who will be the last person locked up for weed in the US? A new full page ad in the Washington Post asks the question.

We’ll be discussing all these stories and more on the BEST cannabis podcast in the business...

As we like to say around here, “Everyone knows what happened in marijuana today, but you need to know what’s happening in Marijuana Tomorrow!” ----more----
