Congress

This bill amends the Controlled Substances Act to provide that the Act's regulatory controls and administrative, civil, and criminal penalties do not apply to with respect to marijuana.

It removes marijuana and tetrahydrocannabinols from schedule I. (A schedule I controlled substance is a drug, substance, or chemical that: has a high potential for abuse; has no currently accepted medical value; and is subject to regulatory controls and administrative, civil, and criminal penalties under the Controlled Substances Act.)

Additionally, it eliminates criminal penalties for an individual who imports, exports, manufactures, distributes, or possesses with intent to distribute marijuana.

The bill does, however, make it a crime to knowingly ship or transport marijuana into a state where its receipt, possession, or sale is prohibited. A violator is subject to criminal penalties—a fine, a prison term of up to one year, or both.

Since being introduced by Representative Thomas Garrett of Virginia on February 27, 2017, this bill has been sent to two committees:

02/27/2017 Referred to House Energy and Commerce Committee
03/03/2017 Referred (a.k.a. *Sent to Die) to House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health
* Hasn't been heard from since
02/27/2017 Referred to House Judiciary Committee
03/03/2017 Referred (a.k.a. *Sent to Die) to House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations
* Hasn't been heard from since
