The year of 2016 brought a lot of changes to the cannabis industry: from impressive new discoveries of marijuana's medicinal potential and properties to the long-awaited legalization of marijuana in California, Massachusetts, Maine, and Nevada. But what should we expect next? We at WeedLex have some guesses on this matter.
Turkey has just made a significant step toward marijuana reform. The country has legalized scientific and medical cannabis production in nineteen provinces. However, cultivating and using weed for recreational purposes remains illegal.
While more and more states in the U.S. are moving towards legalizing marijuana for medical or even recreational purposes, on the federal level, the plant remains forbidden. Cannabis prohibition has lots of negative consequences, especially for the scientists.
