Now that regulated cannabis businesses are established in three states, it is time to bring political pressure to bear on federal policy.
Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont introduced a bill this week that would remove marijuana from the federal Controlled Substances Act. This would decisively remove the biggest hurdle to banking and business investment, and allow every state to comfortably create local regulations without any fear of interference.
The bill from Senator Sanders is the first time this realistic concept for ending prohibition has been put before the U.S. Senate.
Seeing the bill move through Congress will take a concentrated effort by the seasoned advocacy organizations like NORML.org.
Activism and advocacy are what opened the door to this industry in the first place. Tens of thousands of volunteers working hard at the state level with NORML and SSDP chapters have been the engine of law reform. These are the groups that have held rallies, testified at hearings and effectively passed legislation.
Now that the momentum has grown for even further reforms at the state and federal level, it is time for the cannabis industry to invest in activism. Talk to us next week at the Marijuana Business Daily Fall Conference and Expo in Las Vegas https://mjbizconference.com/agenda/about how to make an end to national prohibition a reality.
