-Audience member asked (2018) "about the status of action to legalize marijuana. Cicilline said a relevant bill introduced last year isn't necessarily time-sensitive but he hopes it will be brought to the floor soon."

"Easy access to dangerous synthetic drugs poses an immediate threat to the health and well-being of men, women, and children across our country," said Rep. Cicilline. "This legislation makes it easier for authorities to crack down on these dangerous substances and keep families safe. I'm pleased to be joining Congressman Katko today and working across the aisle to get this done." (on synthetic cannabis)
