Will Marijuana Prohibition End in 2020?

As 2019 draws to a close, let’s reflect on some of the biggest stories of the year for cannabis… and take a peek at what lies ahead for 2020.

We recently invited our friends Justin Strekal from the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) and Morgan Fox from the National Cannabis Industry Association to sit down with us for our first ever “Legislative Roundtable.”

There are few individuals who better understand the inner workings of cannabis legislation than Justin and Morgan.

For a decade, they have had their fingers on the pulse of what’s going on in Washington, D.C. – particularly as it relates to marijuana policy.

In this episode, we delve into the growing number of legislative efforts to end prohibition.

Now, despite the fact that the majority of Americans are in favor of cannabis legalization, there are still plenty of politicians inside the beltway still suffering from “Reefer Madness.”

Justin and Morgan express their views on the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act, the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act, the Veterans Medicinal Cannabis Research Act and others.

Plus, they shed light on the upcoming congressional measures that could end prohibition.

And – what might come as a shock to some – they both explain why they’re not in favor of the federal government rescheduling cannabis.

Here’s to high returns,
