James Clyburn, Majority Whip in the U.S. Residence of Representatives, announced this week that the Residence will be voting on the Marijuana Chance Reinvestment and Expungement Act (Far more Act) in September 2020.
“During the September perform period, the Residence is anticipated to contemplate H.R. 3884, the Marijuana Chance Reinvestment and Expungement Act (Far more Act),” Clyburn tweeted. “The Far more Act decriminalizes marijuana at the federal level by removing it from the Controlled Substances Act. This would enable state law to decide the status of marijuana legality for every state.”
“The bill also calls for federal courts to expunge prior marijuana-connected convictions and arrests and authorizes the assessment of a five% sales tax on marijuana and marijuana solutions to develop an Chance Trust Fund,” Clyburn stated.
The fund would involve grant applications to help men and women who have been adversely impacted by the War on Drugs, offer help to disadvantaged tiny small business owners, and lessen barriers to marijuana-connected licensing and employment.
BREAKING: The U.S. Residence will vote on a bill to eliminate cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act.
So that is historic.
