Rep. Blumenauer Speaks about HR 420
“The Cannabis Caucus was the first of its kind to create a forum for elected officials to collaborate on ways to address our outdated federal marijuana laws” said Rep. Blumenauer. “Congress is clearly out of step with the American people on cannabis when national support for federal marijuana legalization is at an all-time high and we saw several states move toward legalization last November.”
The Cannabis Caucus is not just liberals from the West Coast, like Oregon’s Blumenauer, but also members of Congress from accross the isle, like Reps. Dave Joyce (R-OH) and Dong Young (R-AK).
How Likely Is HR 420 to Become Law?
Probably not very likely – already 5 cannabis bills have been introduced to Congress. So it is a coming wave for sure, but with the current government shut down, and a presidential election only a few more years away. Cannabis advocates may have to take a back seat to silly things like Russia, the Wall, and whatever other farce grips headlines under President Trump’s remaining 2 years.
