Property of Representatives Plans September Vote On Marijuana Decriminalization Bill

The U.S. Property of Representatives is arranging a September vote on a bill that would decriminalize marijuana at the federal level and enable the states to develop their personal cannabis policies. If passed, the Marijuana Chance, Reinvestment, and Expungement (Far more) Act (H.R. 3884) would get rid of cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act.

In a statement, Property Majority Whip Rep. James E. Clyburn of South Carolina wrote that in the course of the week of September 21, “the Property will take up Chairman Nadler’s Far more Act to support restore justice to millions by decriminalizing marijuana and expunging records of nonviolent federal cannabis convictions.”

The Far more Act

The Far more Act was introduced in the Property in July 2019 by Rep. Jerry Nadler, a Democrat from New York who serves as the Chairman of the Property Judiciary Committee. The Senate’s version of the bill was introduced at the similar time by Sen. Kamala Harris, the Democrat from California who is her party’s nominee for Vice President in this November’s election. The bill has 87 co-sponsors in the Property, like Democratic Rep. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, the co-Chairman of the Congressional Cannabis Caucus.
