We won!


December 04, 2020
art.spliff,


This is HUGE!


Moments ago, members of the House of Representatives voted to approve the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement (MORE) Act, HR 3884, which removes marijuana from the federal Controlled Substances Act -- thereby eliminating the existing conflict between state and federal marijuana laws and providing states with the authority to establish their own cannabis laws free from undue federal interference.


This is an historic day for marijuana policy in the United States. This vote marks the first time in 50 years that a chamber of Congress has ever revisited the classification of cannabis as a federally controlled and prohibited substance, and it marks the first time in 24 years -- when California became the first state defy the federal government on the issue of marijuana prohibition -- that Congress has sought to close the widening chasm between state and federal marijuana policies.


And this important victory is due in no small part thanks to YOU.
Together, over the past few months, we have sent thousands of emails and made hundreds of calls to members of Congress. Today, those efforts paid off.


By going on the record with this vote, House members have set the stage for a much-needed legislative showdown in 2021 when we will have the Biden administration in office — one that has publicly expressed an appetite for advancing the restorative justice remedies outlined in the MORE Act. We are primed and ready for this legislative debate and we expect, ultimately, to win it.


So today we celebrate. Tomorrow, we get back to work. NORML won’t stop fighting until there isn’t a single person in this country put in handcuffs for possession of cannabis and until all 50 states in this country embrace the sensible and pragmatic policy of legalizing and regulating marijuana. But we can achieve these goals if we remain united in our efforts. Are you in?




Thanks for all you do.
Onward,
The NORML Team

Unfortunately, it still has to pass the Senate and the word on the street is that, it ain't gonna happen.


Makes for awesome headlines, though. Nothing more than a pacifier.

Not when you try to sneak it in with a Covid stimulus package! I wish cannabis was de-scheduled and legal across the planet, not used for political gains... Afghanistan!

better spread some "special" brownies around sentate to make this pass. Fingers crossed for y'all, but a republican controlled senate allowing legal cannabis...seems like a pipe dream to me. Hopeful that y'all get it though.

I think there’s enough republican senators from legal cannabis states that would support it, or something close to it, if McConnell would allow a debate and vote.
States Rights is SUPPOSED to be a republican ideology. Let each state decide its own path.

states rights IS a GOP centerpiece until a state or DC wants to give their citizens a freedom that GOP dinosaurs do not like... IF McConnell allowed votes on shit he does not like, he would not be the current Senate head, subject to change. he provides political cover for Senators that tell constituents "well, i WOULD vote for that , but Senate leadership won't let us even talk about it..."

Senate is gonna goose-egg that shit, so don't get too excited.

This IS a step in the right direction, though. Maybe we'll have a united Govt body regarding this, in, say, 2090.

Glimmer of hope- Native Americans in Georgia might just be the edge to topple Republican Senate run off elections and DEMS can pave the way to DE/RE-scheduling!! Happy dance!

YES!!!! Indeed, having this measure passed by the House....probably will have to be revisited again after inauguration.
