California officially calls on feds to reclassify marijuana
“The Legislature urges the Congress of the United States to pass a law to reschedule marijuana or cannabis and its derivatives from a Schedule I drug to an alternative schedule, therefore allowing the legal research and development of marijuana or cannabis for medical use,” reads a joint resolution approved by the California Assembly.
Earlier this month, the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee expressed concern that marijuana’s current Schedule I status impedes research, and directed federal agencies to issue a report on the topic. Under California law, joint resolutions don’t require gubernatorial action. The text of the cannabis measure will now be transmitted to [The Current President], [The Current Vice President], [The Current House Speaker] and [The Current Senate Majority Leader]. It will also be sent to California’s two U.S. senators and the state’s 53-member U.S. House delegation.
