Now that Democrats are in control of Congress and the White House, reform can begin for marijuana legalization. Marijuana has produced many benefits, such as creating new jobs and tax revenue, and is growing tremendously in favor amongst Americans. In fact, 91% of Americans approve of cannabis legalization for both medical and recreational use.
Despite widespread enthusiasm for cannabis, there hasn’t been reform on a federal level. But now, President Joe Biden has stated he supports decriminalization and the legalization of cannabis. Several bills have been introduced, such as the MORE Act, supported by U.S. House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler. The MORE Act is a social justice-focused cannabis legalization bill.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senators Cory Booker and Ron Wyden are introducing a more comprehensive cannabis reform bill to the MORE Act that would end cannabis prohibition and promote social justice.
While marijuana reform appears to be on the horizon, it’s important to stay updated with your state laws regarding medical and recreational marijuana use and any actions you may need to take. Even with legalization, marijuana use can be dangerous in certain occupations.
