With the government’s move to legalize cannabis federally in October, there is a lot of activity around it. This week we have big news for Canada, new research on CBD oil and more.

“Wondering what some of the top stories are this week? From legal cannabis to new CBD products, it’s been an exciting week in the world of weed. Let’s take a look at everything you need to know.”The “norml weekly roundup” is a cannabis news blog that posts the most important cannabis stories from around the world. The blog also has a section on how to get involved in cannabis advocacy.

Most New Yorkers may now use cannabis without fear of losing their jobs, Bank of America is under criticism for shutting an approved cannabis research institute’s account, and new legislation might help Washington, D.C. finally see legal cannabis sales.

Let’s take a look at this week’s cannabis news.


The New York State Department of Labor (DOL) stated on Tuesday that most businesses in the state are prohibited from drug testing their employees for marijuana. Employees who are obliged to be tested by federal and state law, such as commercial drivers who work for the Department of Transportation, are exempt from the new regulation. Employees may still be disciplined if they have or use alcohol or drugs on the job, but there must be proof of impairment. The Department of Labor said that “observable indications of usage that do not suggest impairment on their own cannot be used as an articulable symptom of impairment.”

The account of a DEA-approved cannabis researcher has been closed by Bank of America.

The account of a cannabis and psychedelics research institution in Arizona has been closed by Bank of America, the country’s second-largest bank. Scottsdale Research Institute (SRI) got a sudden notification of the bank’s closure with no explanation, according to Marijuana Moment. SRI received preliminary permission from the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to be a legally approved grower of research-grade cannabis in May, after years of lobbying for restricted drug research. Other financial institutions have already shown interest in hosting SRI’s accounts, and SRI has already received a number of bids.

On Monday, a Senate committee unveiled a bundle of budget measures that, if passed, would make recreational cannabis sales legal in Washington, D.C. Despite the fact that D.C. voters legalized cannabis possession in 2014, Congress has effectively thwarted complete legalization with a budget clause that prevents the city’s administration from regulating cannabis sales. In order to preserve marijuana laws, the new budget legislation’s wording omits the vexing barrier. NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) issued a statement applauding the decision.
