Federal Cannabis Legalization News – January 2021 – Cannabis News Roundup Georgia turns blue! What does this mean for the

The federal government can NOT legalize cannabis federally. The federal government needs a CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT FIRST, granting the federal government the authority to decide the legal status of cannabis federally. Currently, the Federal government holds no such authority. ONLY states have the constitutional authority to legalize cannabis, not the federal government.




New York Cannabis News | Will New York Legalize in 2021? – EuphoricRealms

Marijuana Medical Benefits



  • Okay now that is supposably legal in New York I need to know all the information possible. Am I allowed to have seeds and buy them? If I Grow three plants and it’s more than 3 oz which it will be is that a felony still? Is it in effect right now if I got caught with 3 oz of weed which I really don’t ever carry that much. Who needs 3 oz unless you’re growing each plant could be up to a pound LOL I need to know everything and anything to know about the new law is it in effect immediately right now? They have busted a dealer where I live will they expunge him probably not? Medical the medical is a joke nobody can afford it $75 a half gram Vape you can’t even buy a bud is a probably just like that legal marijuana is probably a joke. Well I would say just to barely get by I smoke about a half-gram day it cost me $120 in it last me 24 days. I want to grow my own I cannot afford it anymore. I do not want a medical marijuana license if they’re going to not ever let me own a gun and that’s what they do in New York. You have to pay $200 or more to get a medical marijuana license I don’t need one now I’ve been waiting for this a very very long time like my whole life. I hope it ends up being a good thing but right now it seems like everybody wants the money and nobody cares if it helps people and the giant conglomerates will take over and have the Monopoly and nobody could afford to have a weed shop unless you’re a millionaire well if you could have a weed shop you probably would be a millionaire. And they would be getting their tax money wouldn’t they? I am an extremely strong weed advocate. But as in anything else if you do it too much not a good thing. Is it legal to make your own dab? I don’t want butane in my weed I want to press it! We need to know the laws I don’t even think the cops know the laws now

  • I live in NY State and I have an expired license which I received it from a doctor in PA actually. I have 2 stores near me for edibles and maybe a lotion lol. We all need vapes or flower! I have Severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and I have to buy off the street because I have no car or a way of getting to the dispensary. There is a new store for CBD in town but I would like to vape. I love growing like two plants at home, I’m always learning. I would like to be a care provider. I have a degree in Psychology and Sociology as well as being able to play like any instrument. I would love to be a Music Therapist. Also in my experience I have come upon smoke that is laced with fentanyl or something like meth! Not good!

  • 😎

  • I wish I could hear Nancy, her volume is literally half everyone else’s

  • There are things that I thought would never happen in my lifetime. Cannabis legalization was #1 on my list, followed by #2 An end to the Babylon System. #1 seems on track, #2………

  • Not one of these people, including that so called legal advisor for NORML, has a clue. Go learn what Federalism is, and then NORML will know why it hasn’t once succeeded in 50 years.

  • NORML is the most useless cannabis organization ever. They haven’t ever succeed in 50 years legalizing anything. They have completely failed from the very beginning. They haven’t passed a single state law legalizing cannabis in 50 years of trying.

  • It’s a joke in NY I hate that I have to get a stupid vape pen that’s expensive n it sucks. I grow my own flower n that’s that idc what happens

  • Long Island here. They will be broke after this pandemic, they will have to legalize it. It will be a shit show like everything else.

  • Glad to see Nancy is still working with ESN.

  • I want the packaging to be organic and/or biodegradable

  • As long as we get personal cultivation all the other junk means nothing let the people grow!

  • Hey can yall do a vid on fl laws

  • I can’t wait

  • One thing you are wrong about is Illinois having a good system Illinois is a terrible system lack of quality products and awful taxes and pricing

  • Come to upstate I’ll hook ya all up lol

  • I’m a patient and have been for 3 years,honestly I’ve been to the dispensary twice..why pay $300 when you can pay 200 or cheaper?!..until the price comes down dramatically I’ll be supporting the local guy..

  • Has anyone discussed Georgia? I have two acres of medicinal herbs and elderberry. I would like to add some CBD. Thank you for any direction.

  • This showed up on my recommendations. It’s from over a year ago. This guy is claiming that Biden’s program could end up making cannabis a schedule 2 narcotic there for squashing the legal cannabis industry and turning it over to big pharma. How much truth is there to this?

  • Cuomo is 🗑

  • Defunding the police and decommissioning the police are two different things. they generate their own funds anyway, the dirty way.

  • Do we know if they are also reworking License prices with this bill. Id rather not try to start a cultivation business and have to pay $210,000 initially (app fee and initial registration fee) just to get the license. Other places like Colorado, California, and Delaware initial licenses is only up to $6,000? Would really love to try to start my own business fore cannabis.

  • Yup you’re always be a black market price is too high they keep out the people that were in the market before it became legal by denying felons Licenses and therefore you create a black market

  • New York is the worst for MMJ their prices are insane and they only offer vapes lotion or pills

  • Greetings from Canada , can’t believe you people still can’t grow your own plants , hope that changes for you , it’s wide open here most people I know have garden’s and even press they’re own concentrate , cannabis supplies available everywhere , seeds , clone’s ………come on up !!

  • Nope all talk and no walk Cumo never comes through in Nazi Ny

  • I’m sure big corporations will run the industry in NY with laws prohibiting small farmers from growing cannabis. they did it with hotdog carts with one or two companies monopolizing the business it’s hard to imagine them not doing it with cannabis

  • To much emphasis on medical. The best way for medical patients to get high quality, affordable, pesticide and chemical free cannabis is to buy some seeds, get a few 5 gallon pots of dirt, put the seeds in the dirt and watch them grow. Best social equity program is to get police to stop harassing black people. Problem solved. Legalize it! Let people grow their own meds!

  • Drop prices or let us grow. We all have ptsd from this shit life. This issue has ostracized us from our families who caused the ptsd. Do something to bond us. Make it recreational it’s the key to what’s missing in the world. Our endocannabinoid systems need it.

  • Rural ny med patient here , i pay 150$ a year for my card but I have to drive 45 minutes to buy 1/2 gram cart that last me a couple days costs over 100$ each and they are often out of stock . On the black market that 100$ can buy me a month supply . Its sad . I feel like the state is at fault .

    The monopoly on cannabis here in ny is the worst . I wish they allowed homegrown like other states because getting my meds is expensive and hard to find .

  • They just need to legalize marijuana in all states because they will be less deaths due to narcotics pills and benzos that the government is pushing on patients i live in Connecticut ive been sober for 8 years thanks for medical marijuana i grew up in long Island i hope it becomes legalized every were

  • Dont forget ….concentrate cannabis is not treated as cannabis..they treat it like heroin in ny!!!

  • I can tell you, because NY is ran by lying thieves. Sorry Nancy.

  • 👍🏼

  • Much Love and Reverence from WNY as a patient.I’m really looking forward in price drop cause the Vape Cartridges that are normally $10-60 for 1 gram Live Rosin or Distillates with reintroduced Cannabis Derived Terpenes.Now in California,Nevada,Colorado,SD,and Arizona are reasonably priced versus NYS ridiculous $75-$85 per .5(half gram) Cartridge for Chronic patients.Now multiply that for a monthly supply it’s ridiculously expensive for someone who really needs it.Reform really needs to happen to those who are low income and also Free Trade Practices so it isn’t so Ridiculously expensive to Open an Operation to run a new business to create competition and revenue..Not sure what Corrupt Cuomo is doing.smh

  • Freedom of choice, yeah 👍💚🐯

  • Homegrow is crucial for affordability. If you have the space you can harvest perpetually and keep yourself supplied.

  • Cuomo created a terrible bill that has no chance of passing

  • I’m confused my Google says New York City has already been legalized

  • I wish I could hear Nancy, her volume is literally half everyone else’s

    Research Discovers That Cannabis Was Domesticated in China 12,000 Years Ago

    Research Discovers That Cannabis Was Domesticated in China 12,000 Years Ago: Originating from northwest China, it was used for clothing and medicine.



    Cannabis Sativa 12,000 Years China Domestication News hemp <a href=plants resin drugs thc tcm smoke marijuana weed ” src=””>

    Research conducted by the University of Lausanne has just determined that cannabis was domesticated as early as 12,000 years ago in China.

    With the help of scientists in Switzerland, Britain, India, Pakistan, Qatar and China, the findings were published in the Science Advances journal, where 110 genomes comprised of anything from feral plants to modern hybrids were identified. It was determined that China has been using Cannabis for millennia in its textiles as well as for medicinal and recreational uses.

    “We show that Cannabis Sativa was first domesticated in early Neolithic times in East Asia and that all current hemp and drug cultivars diverged from an ancestral gene pool currently represented by feral plants and landraces in China,” the report read.

    Cannabis, at the time, was split into two categories for different uses — tall unbranched hemp plants that would yield more fiber material from the main stem, and short plant marijuana with more flowers for resin production. The findings went on to state, “Contrary to a widely-accepted view, which associates cannabis with a Central Asian center of crop domestication, our results are consistent with a single domestication origin of Cannabis Sativa in East Asia, in line with early archaeological evidence.”

    DISCLAIMER: We discourage illegal cannabis consumption. Please be mindful of your local rules and laws on the use of marijuana.

    Chuck Schumer says federal marijuana legalization and expungement is Senate priority

    • On Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer introduced the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act.

    Congress is closer than ever to legalizing weed — and the leader of the Democratic-majority U.S. Senate says he’ll use all of his political power to make it happen.

    A day after unveiling proposed legislation to end federal cannabis prohibition, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, said that doing so was a top priority.

    “I am the first majority leader to say it’s time to end the federal prohibition on marijuana and as majority leader, I’m going to push this issue forward and make it a priority for the Senate,” Schumer said Thursday, according to The Hill.

    On Wednesday, Schumer introduced the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act, which would legalize marijuana by removing it from the Controlled Substances Act, allowing for it to be taxed and regulated.

    The bill would allow financial services such as bank accounts and loans for legal cannabis businesses. Even though many states, including Michigan, have legalized marijuana for recreational use, it remains a Schedule 1 banned drug in the eyes of the federal government, which can put many legal businesses in hot water when it comes to banking.

    The proposed legislation would also immediately expunge the criminal records of people with low-level marijuana offenses.

    Sen. Corey Booker of New Jersey and Ron Wyden of Oregon, both Democrats, are sponsors of Schumer’s bill.

    “At long last it would take steps to right the wrongs of the failed war on drugs,” Schumer said.

    The federal proposal comes as other states blow past Texas in legalizing weed for personal use and widening is medical availability. At present, 18 states and Washington, D.C. have made it legal for recreational use.

    During its most recent session, the Texas Legislature expanded the state’s “compassionate use” program to include people with cancer and post-traumatic stress disorder. However, it stopped short of allowing usage by people with chronic pain, a setback to weed proponents.

    Marijuana advocates also say Texas’ new rules don’t allow high enough levels of THC to make a difference for patients with severe needs.
