This year was a surprising one for advancement in the legalization of cannabis. Four states and the District of Columbia legalized recreational cannabis, numerous states decriminalized the drug and a few more states allowed medical marijuana. However, for every one of the advances made in 2015, the year was only secondary to 2016, when the presidential race is likely going to come along with a surge in legalization.
In Congress, there are desires for a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the CARERS Act (S. 683 or H.R. 1538). This bill, supported by Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Senior member Heller and presidential applicant Rand Paul, is a great bit of enactment on medical cannabis. It would permit states to authorize medicinal weed without government obstruction and reschedule pot to a schedule II drug. It would wipe out boundaries to testing and permit banks to work with pot organizations. Toss Grassley is the leader of the board and until he plans a hearing, it is dead. People trust this year that he will collapse under pressure and schedule a hearing.
The Respect State Marijuana Laws or HR 140 is another hearing that the people are hoping for. Director of Communications for the Marijuana Policy Project, Mason Tvert, stated, “We expect support will continue to grow for both of those bills as well as for legislation regarding veterans’ access to medical marijuana and banking for medical marijuana businesses.”
Numerous states have activities for November that emphasize on legalizing or regulating pot for use by people 21 or older. Among these states are Nevada, Massachusetts, Arizona, Maine, and California. States attempting to assemble legislation for the November votes are Florida, Arkansas, and Missouri. Vermont’s state attorney general feels that legalization of recreational weed could happen in 2016, and the House speaker is behind that. Rhode Island is additionally a plausibility for recreational legalization one year from now.
