Federal Marijuana Legalization Bill Will Get A Congressional Vote Next Week
    #27060001 - 11/27/20 01:06 PM (1 month, 20 days ago)

Source: MarijuanaMoment.net

A bill to federally legalize marijuana will receive a full floor vote in the U.S. House of Representatives next week, a top Democratic leader in the chamber announced on Friday.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said the chamber will take up the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act some time between Wednesday and Friday. The floor schedule announcement comes weeks after the leader first confirmed that the House would advance the proposal before the year’s end.

Early in the week, the bill is first expected to go before the House Rules Committee, which prepares legislation for floor action and decides which amendments can be made in order for consideration by the full body.

Hoyer previously said that the chamber would vote on the legislation in September, but that plan was postponed following pushback from certain centrist Democrats who worried about the optics of advancing cannabis reform before passing another coronavirus relief package.

The House approving the bill during the presidential transition could also raise the pressure on President-elect Joe Biden to embrace legalization—a policy he’s declined to adopt despite supermajority support among Democratic voters.

As currently written, the MORE Act, whose lead sponsor is Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), would federally deschedule cannabis, expunge the records of those with prior marijuana convictions and impose a federal five percent tax on sales, revenue from which would be reinvested in communities most impacted by the drug war.

The legislation would also create a pathway for resentencing for those incarcerated for marijuana offenses, as well as protect immigrants from being denied citizenship over cannabis and prevent federal agencies from denying public benefits or security clearances due to its use.

All of those provisions are subject to change through amendments over the coming week.

“This floor vote represents the first congressional roll call ever on the question of ending federal marijuana criminalization,” NORML Political Director Justin Strekal told Marijuana Moment. “By advancing the MORE Act, the House of Representatives sends an unmistakable signal that America is ready to close the book marijuana prohibition and end the senseless oppression and fear that this failed policy wreaks on otherwise law-abiding citizens.”

“Americans are ready to responsibly legalize and regulate marijuana, and this vote shows some lawmakers are finally listening,” he said.

The bill cleared Nadler’s more than a year ago and has been awaiting floor action since.

Even if the far-reaching reform does pass in the Democratic-controlled chamber, as it’s expected to with some bipartisan support, it remains unlikely that the Senate will follow suit, at least during this Congress. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is a champion of the hemp industry but staunchly opposes further marijuana reform.

Even so, a symbolic vote for legalization could send a strong signal to the incoming Biden administration. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris (D-CA) is the lead Senate sponsor of the MORE Act, but she’s indicated she will not necessarily proactively push the former vice president to evolve further on cannabis reform.

Given Biden’s former approach to championing punitive anti-drug legislation as a senator and his ongoing obstinance on marijuana legalization at a time when polls show that a clear majority of Americans favor the policy change, there remains some skepticism about his willingness to make good on his campaign promises to achieve more modest reforms he has endorsed, such as decriminalizing possession and expunging records.

A transition document the incoming Biden-Harris administration released this month left out mention of those cannabis pledges.

That said, the president-elect has conceded that his work on punitive anti-drug legislation during his time in Congress was a “mistake.”

For what it’s worth, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) told Marijuana Moment in August that “the Biden administration and a Biden Department of Justice would be a constructive player” in advancing legalization.

I bet the CSA has importance for pharma and things like that. This would remove cannabis from CSA (federal) as I understand. I like how many states and cities now are decriminalizing mushrooms. States I wouldn’t really expect it from. Maybe at the top they actually don’t wanna lock people up just for having a terrarium

Unlike MJ legalization and the legal markets associated with it, Psilo (Currently) would not be any kind of revenue. Maybe save a few police dollars but not much. Psilo decrim seems to actually be true reform for public good rather than $ (unless pharma/other corps plan on moving in and “owning” Psilo, and this is still capitalism, so, I wouldn’t expect anything different. Perhaps because of those psilocybin pharma strips)

Maybe they wanna de-stigmatize before offering as therapy. Lol

Call/write your legislators to tell them to vote yes. If this passes in the house it will put pressure on the senate and pres. elect Biden to legalize/decrim cannabis

And the GOP will win both. Democrats don't turn out for non-presidential elections like conservatives do.

Even if a miracle happened it would still just split the Senate, and there are still enough conservative/centrist democrats who wouldn't vote for it.

Let’s see what happens. Tho, McConnel blocking all non-conservative legislation should not be legal

It is a literal roadblock to progress. But also a roadblock when it comes to things that conservatives don’t want taken away (gun rights being #1). At the same time he doesn’t care about humans, just the support of conservatives, he doesn’t care if they all shoot each other or die from wd. But Sir, is it true you were illegally stopped from buying an AK47!? Get on this right away, It’s a civil rights abuse! 2nd amendment!!

::crawls back into shell as gunshots ring out::

He never has to worry about shootings. That shell is thick

As a resident of Georgia, I may have a little more insight into these races and believe me it will be a miracle if the Democrats pull out even one.

As for GOP obstructionism, it doesn't stop with legislation but also judges, cabinet members, political appointees to every executive branch institution, and more. And it's only going to get worse thanks to the Conservative take over of the Supreme Court...which also probably ended any chance of seeing the end of gerrymandering in my lifetime.

I'm afraid the Democrats restraint during the Obama administration, of failing to exercise the "nuclear option" and therefore handcuffing themselves with the requirement of obtaining 60 votes in the Senate to get almost anything done, may have marked the last chance the Democrats had of accomplishing anything significant for the next 20+ years. An option(of changing Senate rules to eliminate the 60 vote threshold to end "debate" on a bill before taking it to a floor vote) which the GOP almost immediately exercised once they took control of the white house.

Without the ability to pack the court and restore balance, Biden may soon find his executive powers severely limited as the SCOTUS prepares itself to revive the “non-delegation doctrine”. A doctrine which was rarely ever followed and hasn't been even once since 1935.

The Supreme Court Wants to Revive a Doctrine That Would Paralyze Biden’s Administration

Since it is behind a paywall I will cut and paste.

It could cripple even the most basic government functions.

Joe Biden promised us an FDR-sized presidency—starting with bold action to halt the spread of COVID-19, end the worst economic downturn in decades, and stop the climate crisis. Biden could use regulation and executive action to move quickly to decarbonize the economy, cancel student loan debt, and raise wages. But a Biden administration has an even bigger problem than two long-shot special elections in Georgia: the new 6–3 conservative majority on the Supreme Court may soon burn down the federal government’s regulatory powers.

At least five conservative justices have signaled that they are eager to revive the “non-delegation doctrine,” the constitutional principle that Congress can’t give (“delegate”) too much lawmaking power to the executive branch. On paper, the rule requires Congress, when delegating power to an agency, to articulate an “intelligible principle” (like air pollution regulation needed “to protect public health”) to guide the agency’s exercise of that power. But in practice, the nondelegation doctrine is effectively dead. The court has only struck down two statutes on nondelegation grounds—and none since 1935.

Today, most of the government’s work is done through the “administrative state,” the administrative agencies and offices, like the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Labor, and the Department of Education, which issue regulations and enforce laws. Congress doesn’t have the capacity to pass laws that nimbly address complex, technical, and ever-changing problems like air pollution, COVID-19 exposure in workplaces, drug testing, and the disposal of nuclear waste. So Congress tasks agencies staffed with scientists and other specialists to craft regulations that directly address those problems. This division of responsibility—Congress legislates policy goals and agencies implement them effectively—is the foundation of functional government.

Take, for example, the Clean Air Act. In 1963, Congress ordered the EPA to regulate air quality standards “at a level that is requisite to protect public health.” Based on that authority, the EPA routinely issues lifesaving regulations limiting lead in the air, air pollutants coming from chemical plants, and, critically, greenhouse gasses. Biden can use the CAA to start tackling the climate crisis on Day One. The dormant nondelegation doctrine is the foundation of thousands of regulations across dozens of agencies, allowing agencies to make technical decisions about, say, hospital reimbursement rates to administer Medicare or wage and hour rules that protect workers from exploitation.

But last year, in a case called Gundy v. United States, four conservative justices announced that they wanted to bring the nondelegation doctrine back to life. Gundy arose out of a national sex offender registry law that explicitly applied to everyone convicted after the law took effect but delegated authority to the Department of Justice to determine when and how it applied to people convicted before the law took effect. Herman Gundy, who was convicted before the registry law took effect, argued that the law violated the nondelegation doctrine. The court upheld the law. But in a dissent joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito, Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote that the court should revive the dormant nondelegation doctrine. Gorsuch’s dissent argued that Congress may only delegate policymaking power to agencies under three narrow circumstances: to “fill up the details” of a legislative scheme; for executive fact-finding to determine the application of a rule; and to assign nonlegislative responsibilities to the executive and judicial branches. Alito wrote separately to say he’d like to “reconsider” the nondelegation doctrine—just not in a case about sex offenders’ rights.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh wasn’t on the court in time to hear Gundy. But last fall, in a separate opinion, he signaled his support for Gorsuch’s new, revived nondelegation doctrine. That makes five votes for resurrecting the nondelegation doctrine and taking a hatchet to landmark labor, environmental, and consumer protection law—even without Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who, administrative law experts warn, shares the conservative justices’ hostility to the administrative state.
[emphasis added]

As Justice Elena Kagan pointed out in Gundy if the conservative justices bring back the nondelegation doctrine, “most of Government is unconstitutional.” Exactly how much government would be unconstitutional, though, isn’t clear. What does Gorsuch mean when he writes that Congress may give agencies the power to “fill up the details” of a legislative scheme? What does Kavanaugh’s test—that Congress may not delegate “major policy questions” to agencies—actually forbid in practice? Would Biden’s EPA be permitted to issue regulations about greenhouse gasses or new, dangerous chemicals leaking into our public waters? Congress relies on OSHA experts to set workplace safety standards that are “reasonably necessary or appropriate to provide safe or healthful employment.” Does that “delegate” too much power to OSHA to act fast to issue COVID-19 safety standards for transportation, grocery stores, and meatpacking workers, as Joe Biden has promised to do? What about the EEOC’s power to interpret anti-discrimination to address workplace dress codes that discriminate against Black women’s natural hair? What about the FDA’s authority under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act to subject “any” tobacco products to federal regulations—is “tobacco products” narrow enough under Gorsuch and Kavanaugh’s tests? Or would an FDA decision to regulate Juul just like cigarettes be a “major policy question” outside agencies’ powers?

The uncertainty alone could give special interests like fossil fuel companies and Juul grounds to sue to stop, or at least hold up, lifesaving regulations issued by the Biden administration. They’re already trying—just last year, e-cigarette company “Big Time Vapes” argued that the FDA’s power to regulate “any” tobacco product violated the nondelegation doctrine. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit rejected that challenge. But in its opinion, the 5th Circuit hinted that similar challenges could soon be successful, as the Supreme Court “might well decide—perhaps soon—to reexamine or revive the nondelegation doctrine.” And if that happens, all bets are off.

Such a decision would not only threaten existing regulations. It endangers every piece of future progressive legislation, too. Big, transformative legislative packages, like a Green New Deal or “Medicare for All,” would require a million and one technical decisions that Congress is poorly positioned to make. Biden and Congress can pass legislation phasing the United States toward 100 percent clean energy by 2030—but someone will have to actually sweat the details about which engines can be included in which cars.

Government doesn’t work without the administrative state. But that’s sort of the point. The conservative justices have long been hostile to regulation and executive action. And now they may finally have the votes to bring virtually any regulation to a halt. At least five justices are ready to drop a 1,000-pound anvil on any Biden administration rule that displeases them.

In GA vs CA things look pretty different

(Or even NJ)

The RBG lie was atrocious. Trust politicians, why don’t ya

But as I said, prolly on a diff thread, there was too much stupidity for this administration to really ban anything. Obama on the other hand axes all 2c-x on the market, methylone, all other caths, all cannabamimetics (they’re not cannabinoids), and some random shit like bromo dragonfly (these usually started with single ODs with mislabeled products/abuse), Or some sensational story about zombie face eating but the guy never had anything except pot years ago. 

Point is, Obama banned a lot of psychs. 2cc never hurt anyone. I’m not gonna argue about stims and caths (I’m glad that killing methylone brought back the champagne M)

But it’s funny cause the trump admin talked a whole lot more about drug busts and whatever and he even loved duterte. But nobody even stopped the “evil chinese” rc opis

I bet with Biden all of those rc’s will be banned. So. Enjoy 2F and stuff

Did you read my reply to that post though? My opening point was Obama is not a liberal, he campaigned as one, used progressive rhetoric, obviously had some good speech writers, but he governed explicitly as a centrist. A joke I use(too often) on the topic is "Obama's the best conservative President we've had since Clinton".

Even so, the White House had little to do with banning RCs.

That was just a matter of timing. If Trump was president from 2008-2016, assuming his mayhem didn't prevent Congress from passing the FDASIA+SDAPA...then it would be "Trump" who banned those substances. The DEA temporarily scheduled them, a GOP controlled Congress made it permanent(though it was largely a bipartisan effort, the FDASIA of 2012 itself was a non-controversial Bill and for the most part had little to do with the drug war), Obama himself was not responsible beyond letting it happen(and of course he would, there would be little justification for intervening, less for vetoing the bill, and spending political capital trying to stop it would have been foolish).

The only way it wouldn't have happened is because Trump is such a fucking distraction, dealing with him and his bullshit and answering for him in the media is almost a full time job for party and Congressional leadership, on both sides.

Though I am not sure what that really has to do with this thread, scheduling powerful, novel, and in some cases dangerous compounds isn't a referendum on cannabis.

There's no doubt that both parties have blood on their hands concerning the drug war, but the democratic party is a big tent party, unlike the GOP their views aren't monolithic. There are multiple wings, including conservative ones(blue dogs, new democrats, third way motherfuckers etc.). But as a group their views on drug control have evolved and even more moderate elements of the party realize that criminalization and mass incarceration are not the answer.

Hell, the democratic party as a whole can barely even be called liberal, outside of social issues. Pelosi is the only member of party leadership that I would call liberal, but I wouldn't call her Progressive. Far more members belong to conservative/centrist coalitions like the blue dogs and new democrats than progressive ones like the justice democrats. It's only when compared to the insanity going on with the GOP that they appear so.

Gotta admit I was wrong about the run-off results, but you can't blame me for being pessimistic after Trump vs Hillary and then the disappointing results of the 2020 congressional races. Plus my logic was sound, what really pushed Osoff/Warnock over the top was Trump himself and all his election fraud non-sense...it both energized people to vote against the GOP and motivated many of his base to sit out the election.

And some of his base sitting out isn't just some theory woven in the media, on November 4th(the day after the election) I was driving through an ex-suburban area when I stopped for gas and overheard 2 guys talking to the female cashier(all obvious white trash), all agreeing that this would be the last time they voted since they had lost faith in our election systems. At the time I was tempted to ask for that in writing.

Whats been rolling around in my head about these results, is what the fuck kind of person votes for Warnock AND Perdue, as Osoff barely pulled it out, lol.

I agree. I def didn't think the Dems would pull it off myself.

Maybe some Dem voters voted only for Warnock and left the ossoff/perdue box blank, whereas more Repub voters reliably voted for both? IDK


In any case I hope it leads to some legislation that moves us forward, such as the MORE Act passing the senate and heading to Biden's desk.

No, at my last count only 49 more voters voted in the Warnock/Loeffler run off, and if the above were true then Perdue and Loeffler would have received essentially the same number of votes, the difference in results are from thousands of people voting Warnock+Perdue....they are surely votes against Loeffler, I'm just perpetually amazed that there are so many people ignorant enough to think Perdue is any better.

The GOP is always able to peel off a couple conservative democrats when it comes to the most significant votes, so I wouldn't expect anything too ground breaking to occur, but cannabis reform should be well within the scope of possibility, as long as they get to it before the next mid terms.

But I wouldn't expect them to be able to make far-reaching progress on the climate front, for example.

The most important thing 50 seats allows them to do is confirm judges, thankfully Biden is already taking action on that front. Other than that my hope is they can add a public option to the ACA before too much political capital is spent or they lose seats in the next election.
