America has been hotly debating the merits of legalizing marijuana at the federal level. Movements to press forward with that measure have ensued.
The House Judiciary Committee just passed a bill that, if passed, would decriminalize marijuana nationwide. This would open up more possibilities for states to create their own legislation surrounding the issue. The “Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act of 2019,” also called MORE, was introduced by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), co-sponsored by over 50 lawmakers and passed through committee 24-10.
Yesterday, the @HouseJudiciary Committee passed the #Marijuana Opportunity Reinforcement Expungement (#MOREAct), a bill to decriminalize #cannabis at the federal level. One step closer for states to set their own policies #WeWantMORE https://t.co/rkQUtDVy4r

This is the first time a bill of MORE’s kind has gotten this far at the federal level. However, the bill must still pass through the House, the Senate, and be signed into law by President Trump. Trump has openly opposed the federal legalization of marijuana in the past, but he’s also been known to change his mind.
What do you think about MORE? Should weed be decriminalized on the federal level? Let us know in the comments.
