Senator Chuck Schumer has introduced a new bill to the senate that would decriminalize marijuana at the federal level. The legislation would remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act and remove its classification as a Schedule 1 narcotic. This bill would still allow states to control and determine their own marijuana laws.
The bill would also regulate marijuana at the federal level. Advertising for marijuana and age restrictions for youth will be in place for the protection of health for minors and the American people.
President Donald Trump has already publicly stated that he will support efforts to protect states that have legalized marijuana. Schumer said this legislation is “simpl the right thing to do” and that he believes his “balanced approach” will help earn him bipartisan support in Congress. The bill is co-sponsored by Senator Bernie Sanders, Tim Kaine, and Tammy Duckworth.
