White House Office of National Drug Control Policy Director Rahul Guptaanswered written questions from the Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control.

Sens. James Lankford (R-OK) and Jim Inhofe (R-OK) filed a bill to institute oversight and transparency of purchases of U.S. agricultural land that could threaten national security, citing concerns about transnational criminal organizations taking advantage of Oklahoma’s medical cannabis law.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said he hopes the Senate will soon approve a House-passed cannabis research bill.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) tweeted, "Legalizing marijuana often means more crime, more violence, and more impaired driving. California's experience is a warning for Arkansas. Vote NO on Issue 4."

Sen. John Boozman (R-AR) tweeted, "Arkansans should know legalizing recreational marijuana isn’t the “win-win” its supporters promise. Learn more about the negative consequences for minors, safety, and more at Safe and Secure Communities, and join me in voting NO on Issue 4 this November."

Rep. French Hill (R-AR) tweeted, "As our nation grapples with a historic labor shortage, anything that could further depress workforce participation and hurt young people is unwise. That's why I am voting NO on Issue 4. Recreational marijuana is not the answer for #Arkansas."




STATES
Arkansas's secretary of state issued a declaration that a marijuana legalization initiative is insufficient to appear on the November ballot because the State Board of Election Commissioners did not certify its ballot title and popular name—a procedural step needed to advance an overarching challenge concerning the measure in the state Supreme Court.

An Indiana senator tweeted, "As we get closer to the Study Committee on cannabis policy, it's important we don't forget about hemp policy. Hemp can be used for many essential products. Unfortunately, our policies don't do much to support farmers or give them flexibility. We've got the potential to be a leader in hemp farming and manufacturing in Indiana, but we've got to modernize our laws to make it happen."

An Iowa court ruled that using an out-of-state medical cannabis recommendation is not a valid defense in a marijuana case.

The North Dakota Department of Health and Human Services is being accused of misleading voters with a fiscal note on the marijuana legalization measure on the November ballot by not including projected tax revenue.

Connecticut regulators filed revised marijuana rules.

New York regulators approved a partnership on a cannabis fund between the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York and Social Equity Impact Ventures GP I, LLC.

California officials published an FAQ about cannabis industry payroll tax reporting.

Pennsylvania regulators published a list of pesticides that can be used on medical cannabis.

Hawaii officials are accepting testimony for the Dual Use of Cannabis Task Force meeting on September 19.

TOP THINGS TO KNOW
The deadline to file challenges to an Oklahoma marijuana legalization ballot initiative passed on Thursday—and with two new protests being made over the last two days, the state Supreme Court will get to work dealing with all four before deciding in a separate legal dispute whether the measure can appear on the November ballot.
Reps. Kathleen Rice (D-NY), Morgan Griffith (R-VA), Angie Craig (D-MN) and Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) sent a scathing letter to Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Robert Califf over the agency's failure to enact CBD regulations and its "completely insufficient" reply to an earlier request for input on their bill to allow the cannabinoid in foods and beverages.
A new poll funded by the National Cannabis Roundtable shows that Republican voters support reforms like medical marijuana, expungements and letting states set their own legalization laws. Rep. Dave Joyce (R-OH) spoke to Marijuana Moment about why it's foolish for politicians to attack opponents over supporting such popular cannabis policies.
About six months after voting to decriminalize psychedelics, the Hazel Park, Michigan City Council passed a separate resolution declaring September as Entheogenic Plant and Fungi Awareness Month.

Before they negotiate with the Russians, in order to not be hypocrites, those in charge here need to remove cannabis as a schedule 1 drug. You and I can’t fly cannabis or cannabis products from one place to another legally in the US today. Why should she be any different than you or I(other than the fact that she checks 3 boxes on the DIE social credit list)?
