Comments

“For far too long, we have treated marijuana as a criminal justice problem instead of as a matter of personal choice and public health.    Whatever one’s views are on the use of marijuana for recreational or medicinal use, the policy of arrests, prosecution, and incarceration at the Federal level has proven both unwise and unjust. That is why the MORE Act would set a new path forward and would begin to correct some of the injustices of the last fifty years.  The bill decriminalizes marijuana at the federal level, by removing it from the Controlled Substances Act.  This change applies retroactively to prior and pending convictions.  It does not, however, undermine the ability of states to apply their criminal laws to marijuana or to legalize and regulate it, as they see fit." 4/1/22
