N.J. Lawmakers Introduce Bills To Legalize Recreational Marijuana, Expand Medical

Add a notch to the slim column of policy agreements between President Trump and Gov. Charlie Baker as both yesterday threw their support behind a states' rights marijuana proposal that promises to clear away the dark cloud of federal prohibitions from the burgeoning industry. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Sen. Gardner. I know exactly what he's doing. "We're looking at it, but I probably will end up supporting that, yes". Stephanie Penn, press secretary for McConnell said, "As the senator said on numerous occasions, including a recent media stakeout: 'I do not have any plans to endorse the legalization of marijuana'".

The bill comes after U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has pushed for increased federal enforcement in states that have legalized marijuana.

The bill would also prohibit marijuana distribution at places such as rest areas and truck stops. "States like MA have put a lot of work into implementing common sense marijuana regulations - and they have the right to enforce their own marijuana policies".

Canada's Senate voted 56-30 on Thursday in favor of legalize marijuana for recreational use.

The bill has gained the support of advocates and industry reps alike, possibly making it the most likely of several legalization measures to become law.

In March, Gardner said Trump agreed to respect state-legalized pot, indicating a break from Sessions.

Bill C-45, which was adopted by the Senate with 46 amendments on Thursday, allows adult Canadians to grow up to four plants of cannabis in their homes to meet their personal needs.

Despite the growing number of states legalizing marijuana, the US government still has the right to prosecute people who violate marijuana-related federal crimes, causing confusion for states and the citizens who are lawfully abiding by their state's law.

"The legislation to legalize marijuana for adult recreational use would eliminate the draconian laws and penalties now in place and improve social justice issues in urban areas", Scutari said. "If lawmakers base their decisions on the facts, there is no reason they wouldn't happen", says Mason Tvert of the Marijuana Policy Project.

Marijuana is considered an illegal, Schedule I substance by the federal government. "Instead, it allows the principle of federalism to prevail as the founding fathers intended and leaves the marijuana question up to the states". However, with Republicans in control of Congress and Trump in the White House, legislation that leaves marijuana legalization up to the states has the best chance of gaining traction - and furthering the divide between the president and his attorney general. And it's defined as having a high potential for abuse and also having no accepted medical use, which obviously differs from laws in many states. "This is the state deciding to change the law - and in that scenario, then the federal government says, fine".

Once signed, the STATES Act would finally free cannabis companies to operate as normal businesses.
