USDA Passes Final Rules on Hemp Growing

Just when you thought you knew all the rules and laws that regulated legal hemp growing in the U.S. at the federal level, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) went and made changes to those rules.

All Those Fears About Marijuana Legalization Never Materialized

A new survey of recent research into the impact of marijuana legalization shows that many of the fears used to argue against legalization never happened. For example, concerns about increased crime, more traffic accidents, and more people missing work? None have come to pass.
