Deschedule Marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act Now
Beyond removing marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act list, both the House and Senate bills propose going a step further to provide "restorative justice" to communities disproportionately affected by marijuana arrests and convictions and create an "inclusive industry from the ground up," Lee said in a call with reporters in January.
Lee called the legislation "a bold proposal to reverse decades of discriminatory drug enforcement and to bring federal marijuana policy in line with the wishes of the American people."
"It's the reverse of the 1994 crime bill," Booker said on the call with reporters. "It creates incentives for states to change their marijuana laws."
