Representatives Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Don Young (R-AK today filed a resolution, HR 4779, prohibiting the federal government from taking punitive action against those operating in states where the use and distribution of marijuana is legal.
Republican Gov. Phil Scott publicly announced at a news conference that he intends to sign legislation into law legalizing the use and cultivation of personal use quantities of marijuana by adults. I know there are diverse opinions ... as to whether we should move forward," he said. "But I still firmly believe that what you do in your own home should be your business, as long as it doesn't affect someone else."
Right now, today, Republican Representative Tom McClintock and Democratic Representative Jared Polis are circulating a letter in support of their amendment to defund the Department of Justice’s ability to enforce federal prohibition in the states that have reformed their marijuana laws, both for medical and responsible adult-use.
Between now and June 26, representatives with the Vote Yes On 788 campaign will be traveling statewide and meeting face-to-face with voters. NORML will also be focusing its resources in the coming months to support these campaign efforts.
