House passes historic bill to end federal marijuana prohibition

On Fri­day the U.S. House passed a his­toric bill that would end the fed­er­al pro­hi­bi­tion of mar­i­jua­na and expunge many cannabis-relat­ed con­vic­tions. It’s the first time the full House has con­sid­ered —let alone passed — such a bill.

The Mar­i­jua­na Oppor­tu­ni­ty Rein­vest­ment and Expunge­ment Act (MORE Act), made it through the House by a 228 to 164 vote. Near­ly every Demo­c­rat sup­port­ed the mea­sure, while just five Repub­li­cans vot­ed for it. Six Democ­rats vot­ed against the bill.

The bill, intro­duced by Rep. Jer­ry Nadler (D., N.Y.), would elim­i­nate con­flict between state and fed­er­al law and allow states to set their own mar­i­jua­na policies.
