Here’s the op ed in full as published in the SF Chronicle

Polis want to remove cannabis oversight from the jurisdiction of the Drug Enforcement Administration and pass it over  to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

He states

It does not require any state to change its existing policies, but rather allows states to set their own policies on recreational and medical marijuana without interference from the federal government.

and  adds

I am hopeful that the new Congress and the new administration will support removing the federal ban on cannabis. Time and again, President-elect Donald Trump has said that marijuana legalization should be left for each state. My legislation does exactly that.
