GOP congressman introduces Bill To Move Cannabis From Schedule 1 to 3 Under Federal Law

A GOP congressman has refiled a bill to move marijuana from Schedule I to the less restrictive Schedule III under federal law.

Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) introduced the proposal on Friday. This is the third session in a row that he’s pushed for the modest reform, titled the “Marijuana 1-to-3 Act.”

The two-page bill states that “the Attorney General of the United States shall, by order not later than 60 days after the date of enactment of this section, transfer marijuana…from schedule I of such Act to schedule III of such Act.”

Text: H.R.610 — 118th Congress (2023-2024)All Information (Except Text)
As of 01/31/2023 text has not been received for H.R.610 – To provide for the rescheduling of marijuana into schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act.

Bills are generally sent to the Library of Congress from GPO, the Government Publishing Office, a day or two after they are introduced on the floor of the House or Senate. Delays can occur when there are a large number of bills to prepare or when a very large bill has to be printed.
