Thank you https://www.mpp.org/" target="_blank">Marijuana Policy Project for keeping trach of the following https://www.mpp.org/policy/federal/" target="_blank">FEDERAL cannabis bills. Lets see what happens! 

 

The 116th Congress went into session at the beginning of January, and several marijuana reform bills have already been introduced in both chambers. See below for a listing of legislation we are tracking on the federal level, and stay tuned for information on the progress of these bills and opportunities to take action.

 

H.R. 1595 – SAFE Banking Act of 2019

Chamber: House

Sponsor: Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO); 206 cosponsors

Purpose: This legislation would prevent federal regulators from punishing financial institutions for providing services to cannabis-related businesses operating in compliance with state laws.

Action: Urge your U.S. Representative to support the SAFE Banking Act!

 

S. 1028, H.R. 2093 – Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States (STATES) Act

Chamber(s): Senate and House

Senate Sponsor: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA); 9 cosponsors

House Sponsor: Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR); 52 cosponsors

Purpose: This legislation would protect states’ rights to enact their own marijuana policies without federal interference.

Action: Urge your members of Congress to support the STATES Act!

 

H.R. 420 – Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act

Chamber: House

Sponsor: Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR); 4 cosponsors

Purpose: This legislation would remove cannabis from the federal Controlled Substances Act. It would also transfer cannabis enforcement authority from the Drug Enforcement Administration to a renamed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana, Firearms and Explosives.

 

H.R. 127 – The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States (CARERS) Act of 2019

Chamber: House

Sponsor: Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN); 10 cosponsors

Purpose: This legislation would permit states to implement medical cannabis programs without federal intervention. It would also allow physicians with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to recommend cannabis to veterans. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is expected to introduce a Senate companion bill.

 

H.R. 493 – Sensible Enforcement of Cannabis Act of 2019

Chamber: House

Sponsor: Rep. Lou Correa (D-CA); 10 cosponsors

H.R. 171 – LUMMA – To provide for the legitimate use of medicinal marihuana in accordance with the laws of the various States

Chamber: House

Sponsor: Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA)

Purpose: This legislation would reschedule marijuana and clarify that the federal government cannot “prohibit or otherwise restrict” state-legal use, possession, transportation, production and distribution of medical cannabis. It would also reschedule marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act, from Schedule I to Schedule II.

 

H.R. 601 – The Medical Cannabis Research Act

Chamber: House

Sponsor: Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL); 10 cosponsors

Purpose: While this legislation wouldn’t change the federal legal status of cannabis, it would require the Justice Department to approve additional manufacturers of research-grade marijuana, protect research institutions interested in conducting studies on cannabis, and authorize the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to inform patients about federally approved cannabis studies that they can participate in.

 

S. 179 – A bill to direct the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to carry out a clinical trial of the effects of cannabis on certain health outcomes of adults with chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder, and for other purposes.

Chamber: Senate

Sponsor: Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT); 5 cosponsors
