NJ legal marijuana advocates beats rivals in fundraising

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) – New Jersey’s ballot question on legalizing recreational marijuana has led to more than $2 million in campaign fundraising, mostly by groups in favor of cannabis, the state’s Election Law Enforcement Commission said Thursday.
The campaign already ranks in the top 10 costliest ballot questions in state history, according to the commission.

Mississippi marijuana ballot dispute: No ruling before vote

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – The Mississippi Supreme Court will wait until after next week’s election to consider whether a medical marijuana initiative got onto the ballot through proper procedures.
Chief Justice Mike Randolph filed a one-page order Wednesday giving Secretary of State Michael Watson a Nov. 6 deadline to respond to written arguments filed Tuesday by Madison Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler. That deadline is three days after the election. Watson’s arguments originally were due by Wednesday.
Butler argued that the number of signatures gathered for Initiative 65 does not meet standards outlined in the state constitution. Watson’s predecessor as secretary of state, Delbert Hosemann, said the initiative qualified for the ballot months ago.
Supporters of Initiative 65 said their petition process met the requirements set by the constitution and by a 2009 attorney general’s opinion. They also accused Butler and the city of Madison of trying to undermine the initiative.
The Mississippi i..

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – New York regulators have proposed quality control standards and a licensing program for hemp-derived CBD products that have gained widespread popularity in products such as tinctures, salves and lotions, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday.
The state Department of Health proposed the regulations in accordance with legislation passed earlier this year establishing a Cannabinoid Hemp Program. There are federal regulations for growing hemp but not for processing cannabinoid products. New York’s proposed regulations require laboratory testing and labeling to ensure consumers are getting what they pay for, without harmful contaminants.
“These regulations are the next step toward regulating the growing hemp industry in New York in a way that protects consumers and helps ensure the industry’s long-term viability,” Cuomo said in a statement announcing the proposal.
The regulations have been anxiously awaited by industrial hemp farmers and processors acros..
