House of Representatives Votes to Legalize Marijuana
The Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives voted on Friday to legalize marijuana at the federal level, a first for either body of Congress to vote in support of the matter.
Dubbed the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement (MORE) Act, the legislation aims to expunge records for people with prior federal marijuana convictions. The bill would also impose a tax on marijuana products, which are said to fund programs that support “individuals and businesses in communities impacted by the war on drugs.”
