By Whitney Marie Senior Contributor A call to action was made on Memorial Day weekend from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler , with  the Caucus and other Cannabis committees in re- introducing the M.O.R.E Act( Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act).               The Facts   This currently makes the 2nd time the House has suggested a bill,yet no real solidarity between the House and the Senate.  The bill needs 60 votes to pass the Senate. That’s a vote from every Democrat plus ten Republicans. Presently, marijuana is a schedule I controlled substance and illegal under federal law, making its home on schedule I next to LSD and heroine.           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".  The New Bill would be called H.R.3617 - To decriminalize and reschedule cannabis,
