Last week an interview Bill Maher did recently with President Obama was released. They covered many topics, but eventually the conversation got around to marijuana law reform.
“Let me ask you about a question that I know the people who watch our show are interested in, which is marijuana reform,” Maher asked.
“Is that something that you care about?” Obama joked.
A new Gallup poll shows 60% of respondents supporting the legalization of marijuana, the highest percentage ever in a Gallup legalization poll. Just a mere 11 years ago that number was 35%.
Sixty percent is a clear majority. It can no longer be said that most people don’t agree with the notion of legalization.
In a first step towards federal cannabis legalization, a small beer producer from Aurora, CO has received federal formula approval for an extract-infused beer from the Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. Dad and Dudes Breweria is still waiting for final label approval, but has been sitting on the federal approval of its recipe since June. While beer has been made using hemp seeds for years, this brew is different as it contains cannabinoids.
