MORE.. Every Step Of The Way

Just the latest from Marijuana Moment on the latest approvals in the house.

The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday approved the final rule to advance a bill to federally legalize marijuana to a floor vote, which is expected to happen on Friday.

Members on both sides of the aisle were given the chance to debate the final rule for the process to consider the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act that was approved by the House Rules Committee on Wednesday. And Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO), who served as manager of the rule for the floor debate, took the opportunity to put pressure on the Senate to finally act on cannabis reform.

This is the second time in history that a chamber of Congress will be voting on ending the decades-long prohibition on marijuana.
