House Votes To Decriminalize Marijuana

Breaking Now: The U.S. House of Representatives has voted to decriminalize marijuana.


For the first time in congressional history, the House of Representatives voted to pass a measure that would decriminalize marijuana use at the federal level — months after pulling the bill amid worries the controversial vote could cause some lawmakers to lose tight races in November,” according to ABC News and multiple other news outlets.

The vote passed 228-164, mostly down party lines, with just five Republicans voting in favor of the measure. Six Democrats voted to oppose.

“While the federal government continues to criminalize cannabis, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler stressed that 36 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical cannabis while 15 states and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis for adult recreational use. Nadler said the legislation ‘would reverse the failed policy of criminalizing marijuana on the federal level and would take steps to address the heavy toll this policy has taken across the country, particularly on communities of color.'”

    The issue of Marijuana is NOT what they should have voted on! Where is the vote for the STIMULAS CHECKS for helping Americans? Why does the Marijuana issue come BEFORE THE STIMULAS VOTE??? What good is legalizing Marijuana do if people CAN NOT GET FOOD??? WAKE UP AND SMELL THE BS! Nancy Pelosi is a TRAITOR!

  2. Scott Palmer says:

    Absolutely should be decriminalized!

  3. Jane Coffee says:

    Much needed revenue source. Approved for adult use only and taxed, regulated just like alcohol

  5. Travis Ogle says:

    All drug abuse should be classified as a medical problem and not a criminal one. We have waisted billions of dollars of the people’s money and ruined countless lives by criminalizing people who have made bad choices and allowed themselves to become addicted to various drugs. If we would spend one tenth of the money we spend on drug enforcement and interdiction on educating and counseling, we would see a decrease in drug abuse and it’s ancillary effects. Given human nature, it is doubtful we will ever eradicate drug problems but we can achieve some successes if we change our approach to the problem.

    It would be taxed. Could benefit lowering the deficit. Could help a lot of people.
    Should be not just on alocal but a federal standpoint also.

  7. Ken Shockley says:

    this is something you can put a tax on!

  8. Vincent Lambrecht says:

    The money saved by non incarceration of users and tax revenues of a minor substance which has never been controlled is enough to pass the law by itself.

  9. Absolutely and the debate must also pass it. Republicans should realize it’s ANTIQUATED to think it’s a “gateway” drug and it’s harmless non addictive has many medical benefits as well as for reactions purposes
