Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says “With or Without Biden the end of federal prohibition is in the works”.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and many colleagues have been in the works and will introduce legislation soon to decriminalize cannabis at the federal level, opening the door for states to establish their own legislation policies. Although full details have yet to be revealed this legislation is expected to remove cannabis from the federal Controlled Substances Act and will likely include social equity elements, as well as restrictions to prevent large tobacco firms from overtaking the industry. The anticipated bill, according to the report, will instead prioritize small business owners and entrepreneurs, particularly individuals who have been most heavily affected by the oppressive drug war.
Senate spoke about this bill back in January hinting that lawmakers planned to merge several pieces of cannabis legislation in their quest for federal reform. Here we are in April 2021 and Senate Schumer makes the announcement the same day his home state New York announced its legalization for adult use cannabis use. Senate Schumer stated in a report with ABC News “I support decriminalization at the federal level.”
