The first good thing to happen this year, the US House of Representatives just passed a bill to end the federal prohibition on cannabis (Friday 12/4/2020), But wait, don’t get too excited, there’s more…
The Washington Post notes, “House votes to decriminalize marijuana as GOP resists national shift on pot.” And while this all seems like terrific news Including information like, “The House endorsed a landmark retreat in the nation’s decades-long war on drugs Friday, voting to remove marijuana from the federal schedule of controlled substances and provide for the regulation and taxation of legal cannabis sales.” they go on to mention the nasty truth… “The measure is not expected to pass into law, and, due to political skittishness.” Yes, this is sad, but apparently true.
CNN goes on to mention in their headlines, “Cannabis got a big win in Congress, but legal weed isn’t around the corner.” Again, while sounding like great news – it also rings true for cannabis enthusiast during our 2020 adventure. They go on to say, “Cannabis just had a victory in Congress. But the industry and its supporters may not want to get too excited just yet.”
For now, I guess we wait and see what happens next… But until then did you see this? https://www.instagram.com/p/CIW0ZBVh8UG/ – lets all watch Mariah and Snoop!
