Congress Taking Steps To Decriminalize Marijuana?
So, it looks like Congress is will be having some in-depth discussions. According to WGME 13, Congress will vote on the decriminalization of marijuana.
This would not only remove marijuana from the schedule of controlled substances by federal law, but it would also eliminate an expunged from records of those that have had marijuana arrest or felonies, which would be a good move.
"Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act of 2019," The bill, co-sponsored by Senator, now Vice President, elect Kamala Harris, and Representative Jerry Nadler.
Maine has been on top of the marijuana rules for some time, especially with marijuana now being sold in stores in the state and people growing their own. Are you excited about the potential for a federal abolishment of anti-marijuana laws?
I would like to point out that this initiative Congress is voting on does not mean marijuana will be federally legal, but it will be a step in the right direction, as stated by WGME 13.
