Welcome back to The Week in Weed, your Friday look at what’s happening in the world of legalized marijuana.

A bill that would have allowed cannabis research got voted down in the Senate. The states also made some news. Minnesota gets ever closer to legalizing. Maryland’s governor signs a bill implementing retail sales. And finally, people leave some mighty strange things behind when they take an Uber.
