    This New Bill Seeks to End the Federal Prohibition of Marijuana

    By Monterey Bud on March 1st, 2017 at 12:54 pm | Updated: March 1st, 2017 at 1:36 pm

    In the hopes of keeping Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions and the DOJ from trampling on states’ rights, congressional members Tom Garrett (R-VA) and Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) have introduced bipartisan legislation to remove marijuana from the fed’s list of controlled substances.

    Called the “Ending Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017,” this bill parallels a proposal authored by Sen. Bernie Sanders in 2015.
