Cannabis reform is as close as it's ever been!
Yesterday was a culminating moment in our fight for cannabis reform. The Judiciary Committee passed the most comprehensive cannabis legislation to date by a bipartisan vote of 24-10 and is now headed to the House floor. This is the closest we have gotten to decriminalizing cannabis at the federal level.
We're fighting for equity. We’re fighting for justice. We’re fighting for opportunity.
I’ve been working on this issue I think longer than any politician in America and I am proud of the work we’ve done. A year ago, we developed a blueprint for this Congress to deal with cannabis reform, and we're right on track.
We have seen more progress in the last 40 months than we have in the last 40 years, and we must capitalize on this momentum. The movement is cresting, and if we all do our part, this can be the Congress that ends the failed prohibition of cannabis
