Schumer Asks Senators To Help Shape Marijuana Legalization Bill He Plans To File Soon

In news from The Hill, Senate leaders aren’t just aiming to pass a bill to federally legalize marijuana – they’re also hoping to use this as an opportunity to rectify the wrongs of the past and the negative results of criminalization.

It’s an optimistic sign from lawmakers and those aiming to push the marijuana conversation into the present-day, where states are working to make advances. The effort is led by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in a detailed proposal. This kind of effort on the federal level could signal major changes coming for the business side of marijuana and cannabis products, as well as everyday consumers.
