Here's a handy map we put together of the US, highlighting the changes. Looks like we still have some work to do (talking to you gray states!) and lots of potential for expansion in several others!!

Discrepancies Between Federal and State Cannabis Laws Pose Significant Barriers to Research – New Guidance Needed!

Twenty-eight states have legalized marijuana for medical use. Many scientists want to conduct research on marijuana in states where it is legal, but are concerned that if they do research with state-legal products they may risk their DEA licenses or federal funding. There are also significant regulatory challenges for state-legal cannabis businesses to comply with federal requirements for conducting research with their products. We need to understand the therapeutic potential of marijuana and the potential adverse health consequences of its use, so the Administration must issue new guidance to provide legal protections for scientists studying marijuana who meet state and federal requirements governing research and who don’t become a source of diversion.

Miss Ciara has had seizure's since birth, she has a CP diagnosis, a seizure disorder, microcepholoptomy and recently was re-diagnosed with LGS - Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome... we have faced challenges since the beginning and given no hope or encouragement of healing they just painted a glim picture... But I told them her life will be what we make of it & I am doing my best to give her the best life she can have with the challenges we face. When I heard about the Marijuana - CBD- Hemp Oils helping with seizures, I was excited and filled with hope, especially after reading testimony after testimony of it working for all these kids just like my Ciara... Since the first dose, the first day I have been seeing a huge reduction of seizures, like almost obsolete! Seen an increase in her keeping her eyes open, seeing her happier and laughing. Seeing her kick her legs with excitement. It is a true God given gift what God has given us in this plant. It's time to debunk the myths, time to end the prohibition on Marijuana.... for my Ciara, and for all those like her & others facing/dealing with other situations in their lives.
I am thankful for this CW Everyday Advanced, it is the miracle we have been waiting a lifetime for.

Baby Grace is truly Amazing! She has post vaccine injuries, including seizures and a severe rash. She has been through so much after she received her vaccine, and what I mean by amazing is her strength is solid even with her setbacks. She will still have a smile that will steal your heart. We are confident that we will get her to being two! Even though she is unable to go outside unless we are going to hospital or appointment (the sun affects her skin).

CW has been the most promising help for our baby Grace thus far we are all so thankful I honestly have no idea what we would be doing at this point for Grace if we didn't have CW and RoC.

Her skin is night and day! We have not seen any seizures, skin is looking so much better she more active, more verbal communication, and she seems to be catching up to her milestones, blood work is improving. Her lab's just came back and they are the best they have been since she's been effected by her vaccine! We are so excited about this recovery we are seeing!
