Governor Jerry Nadler Re-Introduces The M.O.R.E Act ( Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act).
However, the overall goal is to remove marijuana from the controlled substance Act. As a results, all federal taxes of cannabis will be used to rebuild communities that has been most affected by the failed "War on Drugs".
This re-introduced bill and has been supported by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York also with Senator Cory Booker and .
According to Norml here is some of the highlights of the re-introduces bill.
In a press conference held ironically on April 20, 2021, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki Biden wants to move cannabis to re-schedule to Schedule II drug allow for the research and to regulate this industry. Some would speculate do to Biden's age and his views on cannabis and drugs you would expect nothing less. However, people are expecting more from Congress leaders. The first time in history this past December 2020 demo Democratic Party voted yes for the comprehensive Bill the more Act. Even though the excitement was there for many activists who have waited today to see our Congress dedicate a bill for cannabis reform.
However, that bill would not pass within the republican-controlled Senate. Fast forward to today where our house and Senate party is controlled by a pro-cannabis democratic party however, this has not been an expedient Journey For The Liberation of Mary Jane. Leaders like Chuck Schumer have been Pro cannabis and committed his campaign conveniently to its liberation. Cory Booker has been preaching about marijuana reform and redoing the incarceration that has disproportionately affected black and brown people. However, with all the support in the world of the Democrats, the delay continues.
Therefore, I'd urge Madam Vice President to enforce the M.O.R.E activity that you once introduced that weighed on her shoulders because she participated in the failed "War on Drugs".
