Massachusetts Politicians Defy Voters, Pass Bill To Delay To Start Of Marijuana Sales
Massachusetts voters approved marijuana legalization on Election Day 2016, and by a healthy margin. Massachusetts became the first state to legalize marijuana for adult use on the East Coast. Marijuana sales were expected to begin no later than January 2018. However, due to a bill that was passed today by the Massachusetts Legislature, sales will be delayed until at least the summer of 2018. Per the Boston Globe:
It took less than an hour and about a half-dozen state legislators to undo the will of 1.8 million voters expressed just last month.
The House and Senate passed a bill on Wednesday delaying the opening date for recreational marijuana stores in Massachusetts by half a year — from January to summer 2018.
The extraordinary move would unravel a significant part of the marijuana law. About 1.5 million people voted against legalization on Nov. 8.

Judge Dismisses Suit Against Kansas Mom Who Used Medical Pot
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a western Kansas woman against the state and several agencies after her son was removed from her home in 2015 when he told school officials she used marijuana.
Shona Banda, of Garden City, alleged in the lawsuit filed in March that the defendants denied her civil rights by refusing to allow her to use medical marijuana to treat her Crohn’s disease, interfered with her parenting and questioned her son without her permission. Medical marijuana is not legal in Kansas.
U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten dismissed the lawsuit Tuesday, agreeing with the defendants’ contention that Banda had no right to use marijuana and the agencies had some immunity.
Banda says she intends to pursue the case after she recovers from a recent surgery.
