This is very exciting!
The House Judiciary Committee approved the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement (MORE) Act Nov. 20, marking the first time a congressional committee has approved a piece of legislation to end federal cannabis prohibition.
“This committee vote is a historic step forward for cannabis policy reform at the federal level,” said Cannabis Trade Federation CEO Neal Levine, in a public statement. “The MORE Act would ensure cannabis consumers and businesses are treated fairly under the law. It would also bolster state and industry efforts to promote diversity within the cannabis business community, while helping communities and individuals adversely impacted by the war on drugs. A solid majority of Americans support ending cannabis prohibition, and we’re finally seeing that reflected in a vote on Capitol Hill.”
