Medical Marijuana Soon Legal Across America?
A new Senate medical marijuana bill called the the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States Act was proposed Tuesday; it promises to change the way the federal government classifies and treats the use of medical marijuana.
Three Senators, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand and Rand Paul introduced the bill. It wouldn’t make pot legal across America, but it would effectively clear the smokey air around the use of medical marijuana at the federal level.
Sen. Gillibrand told a press conference that the CARERS Act “would recognize that marijuana has accepted medical uses, and would recognize the will of voters in 23 states that have decided that denying families access is wrong.”
