Key Congressional Chairman Sends Marijuana Email To NORML Activists

https://www.forbes.com/sites/tomangell/2019/08/12/key-congressional-chairman-sends-marijuana-email-to-norml-activists/?fbclid=IwAR0PFy2p2JPsAmSJo3G8jDD4ezI7iuqBp-CxC_f5SFNHikhSwLbAzQf4Hik#45e8295b66d3



The chairman of the influential House Judiciary Committee authored a message to NORML's email list on Monday—a notable signal of how the cannabis legalization movement has entered the mainstream corridors of power on Capitol Hill.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who last month filed legislation to remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act and begin repairing the harms of prohibition enforcement, asked the advocacy group's supporters to write their own members of Congress in support of his bill, the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement (MORE) Act.

"America has a moral responsibility to pass my legislation to end the prohibition of marijuana and take on the oppression at the heart of the War on Drugs," Nadler wrote. "I’m proud to work with NORML to create a more just national marijuana policy."


The bill will "once and for all end the destructive policy of federal marijuana prohibition in America" and "remedy the widespread inequities and injustice this policy has brought upon tens of millions of Americans," the chairman told the legalization group's members.



Treaty? What treaty?* Thank you Chairman Nadler.

Yes, tongue in cheek.

1. This is really good news.

This could help the sick, free the prisoners unjustly condemned, and save thousands of family farms before Cargyll & Archer Daniels Midland gobble them all up when Trump's tariff wars ruin owners. Not to mention the tax revenues.

3. Go Nadler!

There has never been a shred of evidence in support of marijuana being a Schedule I drug.

5. No, there isn't any evidence for that.
