Breaking news: MORE Act Set to Pass Marijuana Legalization Today
After decades of a the federal governments war on cannabis, the U.S. House is expected to pass the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act with overwhelming support from House democrats. The majority of House Republicans are expected to vote against the MORE Act.
A recent Pew Research Poll found that 91% of Americans favored legalization.
This will be the 2nd attempt by House Democrats to pass federal legalization to decriminalize cannabis. An attempt in 2020 was blocked by GOP majority in the Senate.
The MORE Act, of 2020 won the support of only five Republicans.
What does the MORE Act do?
eliminate criminal penalties associated with the cannabis
establish a process to expunge previous convictions
impose a federal tax on marijuana sales
fund programs meant to help communities negatively impacted by so-called “war on drugs” policies
establish a 5 percent tax
tax would increase to 8 percent over five years
“This landmark legislation is one of the most important criminal justice reform bills in recent history: delivering justice for those harmed by the brutal, unfair consequences of criminalization; opening the doors of opportunity for all to participate in this rapidly growing industry; and decriminalizing cannabis at the federal level so we do not repeat the grave mistakes of our past,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
Will the U.S. Senate Pass the MORE ACT in 2022?
The vote in the Senate is predicted to be a challenge. Many GOP members believe federal legalization is bad policy.
“We can all sit here and pretend that marijuana is a harmless drug, but it is not. It clouds your judgment and inhibits your reaction time,” said Rep. Pete Stauber (R-Minn.), a former police officer
