House Republicans pitch their federal marijuana legalization bill – “Common Sense Cannabis Reform for Veterans, Small Businesses, and Medical Professionals Act,”

MJ Biz reports

Two Republican congressmen in the U.S. House of Representatives have introduced a bill that would legalize marijuana federally in a manner similar to alcohol.

The bill, “Common Sense Cannabis Reform for Veterans, Small Businesses, and Medical Professionals Act,” is sponsored by Reps. David Joyce of Ohio and Don Young of Alaska.


The two congressmen are co-chairs of the bipartisan Congressional Cannabis Caucus, along with Democrats Earl Blumenauer of Oregon and Barbara Lee of California.

The measure would remove marijuana from the federal Controlled Substances Act, provide explicit banking protections for the cannabis industry, allow military veterans access to state-legal MJ programs and expand research.

Steve Hawkins, executive director of the Washington DC-based Marijuana Policy Project, praised the Republican-sponsored bill as a “promising step forward” in federal reform efforts.
