According to the survey results, some 70 percent of respondents back Initiative Measure 26 — which establishes a medical cannabis access program — and some 60 percent of voters support Constitutional Amendment A, which legalizes the adult-use marijuana market.
“The only resolution to this constitutional conflict is for the Supreme Court to invoke the doctrine of estoppel to prevent the federal government from reversing course and retroactively penalizing that which it has protected in fostering state cannabis programs and effectively legalizing it.”
“It is mind-boggling that the federal government is revisiting this half-baked proposal now. The idea of proposing a testing procedure that will inherently deny more people of color opportunities than it would others who have engaged in exactly the same activities is beyond tone deaf and counterproductive.”
Here are four reasons why the upcoming House floor vote on The MORE Act will mark an important and significant milestone in the history of marijuana law reform.
“In the adjusted analysis, at-least-daily cannabis use was significantly associated with increased rates of injection cessation.”
“Sixty-six percent of respondents — including 77 percent of Democrats, 58 percent of Independents, and 56 percent of Republicans — said that they support adult-use legalization.”
Senate members passed an initial version of the bill in 2019, while House members passed an amended version of the measure in February.
“Our polling shows bipartisan support for meaningful legislative marijuana reform that would legalize marijuana.”
