FN Media Group Presents Microcapspeculators.com News Commentary
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam approved a CBD legislation bill to expand the state's medical marijuana program. The Virginia House and Senate passed the bill last month before sending it to Northam for his signature. The Senate's version passed with a unanimous vote February 5. Included in today's commentary: NightFood Holdings, Inc. (OTC: NGTF), INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ : INSY ), Terra Tech Corp. (OTC: TRTC), General Cannabis Corp. (OTC: CANN), and Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA)
Cannabis activists in the state reacted positively to the news. Not only activists are seeking medical marijuana policy reform in Virginia. Public opinion also favors change. A poll released last year by Quinnipiac University found that 94 percent of Virginians approved of the medicinal use of cannabis. Allowing recreational use of marijuana was supported by 59 percent of those polled.
This opinion seems to be mirrored nationwide, and is a sentiment that continues to grow.
One reason for this increasing sentiment is the fact many see CBD as an alternative to opioids, which have ravaged American communities with their addictive properties.
In other CBD news includes the following companies: NightFood Holdings, Inc. (OTC: NGTF), INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ : INSY ), Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQX: TRTC), General Cannabis Corp. (OTCQB: CANN), and Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA).
