As to the VP, I'm not sure we can take ANY politician at her word. While I don't take a position on if she EVER used, there are some issues with her radio statement to have me doubt it. )
All social media is about to get tracked for insurrectionists. I wonder how hard it would be to add cannabis to the data? Or, anything else the government doesn't much like? (Rioting in general? Completely legal protests? Bartering and taxes? Supporting any "wrongthink"?)All things considered, I would bet big money that participation in this forum would be the death knell of a job in the Biden administration at this point. Especially for someone regularly contributing. I don't think that should be the case, but I'm sure it is.
DHS is planning to expand its relationships with companies that scour public data for intelligence, one of the senior officials said, and also to better harness the vast trove of data it already collects on Americans, including travel and commercial data through Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Coast Guard, the Secret Service and other DHS components.
That was why as much as hate Trump, banning him from Twitter was a very undemocratic thing to do. No matter what he says, he was elected by public vote. A private company has no right to censor the president of the United States. Technically they may do, but that's not an excuse. And in any case if he has won the election it would had been well within his power to revoke Section 230. All these privately owned public forums have some rights but some responsibilities as well.All social media is about to get tracked for insurrectionists.

I think everyone's on board with the banks. I'd be surprised if we don't get a bipartisan bill passed this year. (SAFE banking act) All the politicians up and down the line know they can't get the money until they give cannabis access to the banks.If congress managed to pass a bill I seriously doubt he would veto it. It is up to congress to get it done. All we are really looking for from the fed is to take it off schedule 1. That would allow states to do what they want, and would allow banks to lend and take cc cards for goods.
In another blow, Bankruptcy Judge Rosania agreed UCANN’s ties to marijuana prevented it from obtaining relief under bankruptcy law, and he granted the Trustee’s Motion to Dismiss the Chapter 11 Case in January 2021.UCANN is “asking this Court to entangle itself in readjusting the debts of those who seem to have conspired to violate the [Controlled Substances Act]”. Obligations “incurred to further criminal conduct,” says the Trustee, “cannot be a valid purpose of a bankruptcy.” The Trustee argues that is “clear” that the licensees are authorized to use the 911 Patent and that the 911 Patent pertains in part to THC. The Trustee asks the Court to compel UCANN to explain whether the license agreements contemplate the use of the 911 Patent to manufacture, sell, or distribute productions containing THC.
The CEO of Uber said on Monday that the ride share company will “absolutely” explore adding marijuana deliveries to its services when federal prohibition ends.
Dara Khosrowshahi was asked about the prospect of expanding his business to include cannabis deliveries during an interview with CNBC. He said while the company remains focused on grocery and alcohol deliveries, in addition to its core ridesharing service, that’s certainly in the cards if marijuana is federally legalized.
