The new regulations lift a proposed cap on the size of marijuana farms, loosen restrictions on pesticide testing and clamp down on the potency of edibles.…

After years of being cagey about his religious beliefs, the 53-year-old Democrat told the Washington Post that he’s become alarmed this year with the appearance of religion in policy-making, which pushed him to announce that he is a non-religious humanist.
