Schumer Says Federal Marijuana Legalization Bill Will Hit Senate Floor ‘Soon’

According to Marijuana Moment..

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) says a bill to federally legalize marijuana that he’s planning to introduce will be brought to the floor of his chamber “soon.”

During a press conference on Sunday, Schumer talked about how “a large majority” of the Democratic caucus wants to end prohibition, and it’s also getting support from “some places you wouldn’t expect” such as the “libertarian right.” He also noted that voters in conservative states such as South Dakota approved legalization initiatives last year.

“I am going to put this bill on the floor soon. It hasn’t been introduced yet,” the majority leader said, adding that he’s been working with Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) to draft the reform measure. “Once it is introduced, it will go on the floor.”
