End Federal Ban on Marijuana: Align with State Laws Now

To: Pres. Biden, Rep. Casar, Sen. Cornyn, Sen. Cruz

From: A verified voter in Austin, TX

April 30

The recent proposal by the DEA to reclassify marijuana as a less dangerous drug, moving it from Schedule I to Schedule III, is a significant policy shift. However, it falls short of the necessary reform. While this move acknowledges the medical uses of cannabis and its lower potential for abuse, it does not legalize marijuana for recreational use. Currently, 38 states have legalized medical marijuana and 24 have legalized its recreational use. It is crucial to align federal law with these state laws. Therefore, the request is to lift the federal ban on marijuana completely. This would not only reduce tax burdens and facilitate research but also eliminate the risk of criminal prosecution for unauthorized trafficking of a substance that is legal in many states.
