Trump agrees to leave state-legal marijuana programs alone

usatoday.com – 

America’s fast-growing marijuana industry could be poised for supercharged expansion after President Trump promised to respect state-legalized pot in a deal with a Colorado senator who had been blocking presidential nominees.

Republican Sen. Cory Gardner on Friday announced he’d received assurances from the president that federal agents would leave alone states like Colorado that have legalized recreational cannabis. Gardner had been blocking nominees to the Department of Justice since January over the issue, and on Friday relented.

“President Trump has assured me that he will support a federalism-based legislative solution to fix this states’ rights issue once and for all,” Gardner said in a statement.

Gardner didn’t elaborate on what specific legislation Trump said he would support, although Congress is currently considering several bills that would legalize cannabis at the national level.

BEAUTICIANLIST, NEW BEAUTICIAN-DISCOVERY PLATFORM FOR CONSUMERS, SETS NEW INDUSTRY STANDARD, CELEBRATES LICENSED SERVICE PROVIDERS

NEW YORK [March 22, 2018] – BeauticianList, the first online platform to identify licensed beauty specialists, recently announced the launch of its online platform, BeauticianList.com, as well as its free mobile app. Providing verified data about licensed professionals, BeauticianList empowers industry pros to grow their business through a unique online community, while offering beauty enthusiasts an unprecedented way to discover only licensed beauty practitioners.

BeauticianList provides a first-of- its-kind online directory and safe community for beauty specialists that unites them with potential clients who are seeking beauty and nail services. Further validating the need for industry regulation, BeauticianList educates consumers about the dangers associated with unlicensed technicians and salons, including being exposed to sub-standard, unsafe practices. Also, BeauticianList provides industry news, tips, trends, and other relevant information about beauty care and services, including information on proper procedures and state-specific board rules.

How BeauticianList works:
● Beauticians, all of whom must hold a valid license, can register for online membership by providing their name, state, and valid license number, as well as enhance their profiles with further details (i.e. social media profiles, areas of specialty). Additionally, licensed beauticians gain access to an active forum for addressing questions and engaging in discussions.
● Consumers can visit BeauticianList or download the free mobile app, and search for licensed beauticians based on areas of expertise, location, and name. The BeauticianList community enables beauty enthusiasts and specialists, alike, to share photos of services, beauty news, and trends.

Previously, the only way to verify a technician’s current license status was by logging onto a state’s website and trying to find the board of cosmetology’s verification feature. However, as every U.S. state has its own rules and regulations regarding cosmetology certification, there was no unified place to house this information. BeauticianList is the only destination where data can be checked from any U.S. state, conveniently in one place.

“Connecting consumers with verified professionals, BeauticianList enables beauty enthusiasts to find the best local providers in their own neighborhood, as well as when they’re traveling,” said Dasha Minina, BeauticianList founder and CEO, who is also a licensed nail technician.

“More importantly, it helps them discover only licensed professionals who maintain the highest quality of health and safety standards, a huge concern that continues to plague the beauty industry.
