First Federal Bill to legalise marijuana for the USA
For the first time, a bill to legalize marijuana at the federal level will soon go to the floor of the U.S. House for a vote.
“The MORE Act would actually erase past convictions for marijuana offenses, opening the door to opportunities to jobs, housing, education, things that could help people, but it would also make it so people will no longer be denied federal benefits because of marijuana activity,” said Maritza Perez, Director of the Drug Policy Alliance.
Some CEOs of companies in the industry say the bill has a long road ahead but are optimistic marijuana will become legal at some point.
“I think that it creates that dialogue where we can have sensible legislation and policy when it comes to cannabis and THC products,” said Joe Dowling, CEO of CV Services.
