I tend to look to Norml when studying individual state laws or checking for updates.

What Can You Do?
If you utilize social media Twitter is where the political conversations happen. Tweet at your local and state government officials, your local news and radio stations and personalities, and national political influencers like the team at Crooked Media - @jonfavs | @danpfeiffer | @tvietor08 | @jonlovett. Strategically generate dialogue, ask questions, and share your personal stories and support of CBD, hemp, and cannabis. It takes a village! Don't sit back and be pissed when you don't get your way. Get involved and be the change you want to see in this country!
And don't forget to use hashtags so your message doesn't get lost in the abyss - #CBD | #SaveCBD | #CannabisLegal.
