Action: U.S Policy Council Collecting Comments for Senate Cannabis Legalization Bill

The Offices of Senator Schumer, Booker, and Wyden are accepting comments on specific parts of the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act (CAOA), the Senate cannabis legalization bill released in July. The U.S Policy Council is collecting comments to submit on behalf of SSDP. 

Much like the MORE Act in the House, the CAOA would remove marijuana from the federal Controlled Substances Act, empowering states to set and maintain their own cannabis policies free from federal interference – no longer constrained by restricted access to federal public benefits and financial services. If you’d like to learn more about the CAOA, you can find the discussion draft released by the Senators here, a fact sheet here, and a detailed summary here

If you’d like to submit comments, please do so by this Friday, August 13th, at midnight PST using this form. 
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact policy@ssdp.org.
