CG90940April 9, 2013 - With the close of the 2013 international ski competition seasons, Kellogg's welcomed two new athletes to Team Kellogg's as they work their way to the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Fresh off of the medal podium, ski jumper Sarah Hendrickson and alpine skiing Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety join Team Kellogg's 11-person team of Olympic legends, athletes and hopefuls striving to represent Team USA next year. Get to know the Team Kellogg's athletes and follow them on their journey at Kelloggs.com/TeamUSA.

Hendrickson and Ligety are the newest Team Kellogg's athletes to showcase how everyone from kids to athletes can realize their potential when they start the day right. Hendrickson began skiing at the age of two. Her father was a ski jumper and after watching her brother ski jump for two years, Hendrickson was no longer content to just sit on the sidelines. Today, 18-year-old Hendrickson flies through the air at 60 miles per hour and is the third-ever woman to win the ski jumping world championship. Hendrickson looks to continue to make history as women's ski jumping makes its debut at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. "Every day I love ski jumping more and more," said Hendrickson. "And I look at each morning as a fresh start to take on the day and continue doing what makes me happy." As for Ligety, he grew up in Park City, Utah. Raised on the slopes, Ligety spent so much time skiing that he called the mountain his "babysitter" while growing up.  It certainly paid off as Ligety raced his way from the Park City farm team up to the Park City ski team and finally the U.S. ski team. Ligety's drive and determination continued to help him earn Olympic gold at the Turin Games, and he has his sights set to do so again in 2014. "I couldn't be more thrilled to join the incredible athletes on Team Kellogg's and help show how a great start can lead to so many great things," said Ligety. "Breakfast fuels me for rigorous training each day, so it's an easy, but important part of performing your best." 2014 Team Kellogg's Team USA Athletes:     Gretchen Bleiler –Snowboarding

  • Washington, D.C., April 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced today that he will soon be introducing legislation that would remove marijuana from the list of federally controlled substances so that states could adopt their own cannabis programs.

    “We agree with Senator Schumer that this legislation is long overdue and commend his leadership as the Senate’s top Democrat to finally modernize our nation’s marijuana policies. Removing cannabis from the federal Controlled Substances Act will allow states to continue to successfully regulate cannabis, undermine criminal markets, create new economic opportunities, and will pave the way to much-needed research into the therapeutic potential of cannabis,” National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) Executive Director, Aaron Smith, stated in response to the announcement.

    “We look forward to working with Sen. Schumer and his colleagues in Congress to advance federal legislation that will allow our industry to reach its full potential as one of America’s fastest growing business sectors,” Smith added.

    Twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia have legalized the medical use of cannabis and nine states and D.C. permit the use of cannabis by adults over 21. An impressive 64 percent of Americans believe that cannabis should be made legal, while a national poll conducted in January found that 70 percent of Americans oppose federal interference in state marijuana laws.

    As the nation’s largest cannabis trade association, NCIA represents over 1,500 businesses serving the legal cannabis industry. Hundreds of NCIA members will descend on Washington, D.C. May 21-23 for NCIA’s 8th Annual Cannabis Industry Lobby Days to educate lawmakers on the social and economic benefits of regulating cannabis and to share the challenges they face due to the conflict between state and federal laws.
