Schumer says a plan to federally `` decriminalize '' cannabis is coming soon
Senator Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says a bill to decriminalize marijuana is coming soon.
In an appearance on ABC, the senator said, "I support decriminalization at the federal level, and we will soon introduce legislation with some of my colleagues."
The bill, which will be introduced, would delete the criminal record for marijuana use, regulate marijuana and its taxes, and remove it from the federal list of controlled substances.
When asked if President Biden would support the bill, White House Press Secretary Jane Psaki said the president's position had not changed. Supports decriminalization.
