Trump Extends Cannabis Protections ‘Til December As Plans For Study, States Remain Hazy

While many cannabis users (especially white, affluent ones) haven’t felt much federal pressure over the drug’s Schedule I status, those groups who have helped pioneer legal cannabis as producers and retailers have often faced heavy crackdowns, and short-term losses into the millions. Overall, more than 8.2 million Americans were also arrested for marijuana crimes between 2001 and 2010 alone, Slate points out.

Extending the clause’s effects through December 8 could therefore offset some big burdens for cannabis operators who’re trying in good faith to build businesses that comply with state laws–at least for a few more months. Despite this development, however, many aspects of federal and state game-plans for the cannabis industry remain uncertain, forcing a range of cannapreneurs to proceed unprotected while hoping for the best.
