Garrett introduces legislation to remove marijuana from controlled substances list

Garrett introduces legislation to remove marijuana from controlled substances list | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today 5th District Congressman Tom Garrett introduced legislation aimed at federally decriminalizing marijuana. The short title for this legislation is cited as the "Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017." If passed, this bill would take marijuana off the federal controlled substances list - joining other industries such as alcohol and tobacco. Originally introduced by Senator Bernie Sanders in 2015, this bill fulfills a responsibility to create a level playing field across the country.

Thank you Congressman Garrett. I wish Common Sense well on its journey through D.C.
