Two bills to ease federal cannabis enforcement

All - today Senators Warren and Gardner introduced an amendment to the Controlled Substances Act to permit “manufacture, production, possession, distribution, dispensation, administration, or delivery of marihuana" in states where it is authorized pursuant to State law. This does not legalize marijuana at the federal level; instead, it respects states’ rights to create regulated cannabis marketplaces.


In coordination with our team in DC, we have drafted a template press release under the banner of the WRCBA for you to use as a foundation for issuing statements of support in your respective state markets. We have also drafted a letter we will be sending to congressional leaders as part of our coordination campaign to support this legislation.
