It’s main, your home will vote on the MORE Act this September. Congress might vote to legislate cannabis quickly by passing the MORE Act.
Maritza Perez of the Marijuana Justice Coalition and Drug Policy Alliance joined us to go over the MORE Act and recovery from the damages of the War on Drugs.
The MORE Act would:
Remove marijuana from the list of Schedule 1 compounds
Expunge the records of those with marijuana convictions
Reinvest income into neighborhoods that were most damaged by the War on Drugs
Allow veterans access to medical cannabis
