(ReclaimingAmerica.net) Happening Now: Just moments ago, the United States House of Representatives defied the opposition of President Joe Biden and voted to make marijuana legal at the federal level.
As reported by the New York Post in “House votes to legalize marijuana despite Biden opposition”:
“The House of Representatives on Friday voted to federally legalize marijuana, but the bill faces long odds in the Senate and a possible veto by President Biden, who opposes legalizing pot.
“The bill would remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act and let states set their own policies. Biden has not specifically addressed his stance on the bill, but his aides say he opposes legalization while supporting more limited steps toward decriminalization.
“The Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act passed 220-204. Two Democrats voted against it and only three Republicans voted in favor.”
While federal legalization currently faces long odds because of Biden and older members of the GOP, “A recent Gallup poll found 68 percent of Americans, including half of Republicans, support legalizing pot, and federal legalization is widely considered inevitable due to overwhelming support among younger adults.”
