The U.S. could soon see cannabis legalized at the federal level.
With or without President Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says he’s ready to move ahead with major changes to current cannabis laws.
“I support decriminalization at the federal level, and we’ll be introducing legislation with a few of my colleagues shortly,” said Schumer, as quoted by USA Today. In addition, according to National Interest, “Schumer first introduced legislation in 2018 to legalize marijuana, although it did not move forward in the then-Republican-controlled chamber. However, the Democrats now control the Senate, giving Schumer, as majority leader, power to move bills to the floor.”
