Cannabis prohibition ‘creates substantial public safety risks,’ State lawmakers say

Cannabis prohibition is a threat to public safety, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) – a bipartisan group that brings together lawmakers from across the country to coordinate lobbying campaigns.

“[T]he National Conference of State Legislatures believes that the Controlled Substances Act should be amended to remove cannabis from scheduling,” the group wrote in a recent policy resolution. “[T]he National Conference of State Legislatures acknowledges that each of its members will have differing and sometimes conflicting views of cannabis and how to regulate it, but in allowing each state to craft its own regulations we may increase transparency, public safety, and economic development where it is wanted.”
