The next United States Congress is likely to pass cannabis legislation, said two congressmen ring a conference Friday, even if Republicans retain control of Congress in November’s election.
The lawmakers spoke specifically about the STATES (Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States) Act. Introduced in June, the bill would exempt states with legal cannabis laws from federal cannabis law enforcement.
They cited increasing public support, especially for medical cannabis, and decreasing fear among politicians about the negative consequences of being pro-cannabis.
