House approves Federal marijuana legalization

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

The chamber approved the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act, or MORE Act, by a vote of 228-164, falling largely along party lines.

Five Republicans joined most Democrats in voting for the measure. The bill removes marijuana from the federal controlled substances list.

If eventually passed into law, it would not automatically make recreational marijuana legal nationwide. Individual states would still have to legalize cannabis.

Is this finally a sign that we're moving into 2021?

Unfortunately, not likely to pass Republican senate. They rely far too much on the support of law enforcement and the 'justice' system. I think most Republicans don't even care that much one way or another, but I doubt they'll thumb their nose at a large portion of their constituency

Seems reasonable as long as there isn't a ton of other stuff hidden in the bill.

This is likely a strategic move to help boost the chances of a Democratic Senate victory in Georgia.

IMO, it was always an offence to be an offence.

I had that thought too.

Everything any of them do between now and Jan will be about the Senate races in Jan.

"The measure's broad support among Democrats, however, largely stems from its social and criminal justice reforms. The act would expunge the criminal records of those with certain marijuana convictions and create funding and grants for communities disproportionately affected by the enforcement of marijuana criminalization. "

That's positive reform. Definitely been wanting that for a while. Think it will also help our health care if done right and provide some new jobs.
