New Congressional Marijuana Bill Is Actually Named “H.R. 420”

Who would’ve thought those stiffs in Congress actually have a sense of humor?

According to Forbes, the lawmakers on Capitol Hill have reserved H.R. 420 for a bill that completely alter the federal marijuana laws in the United States.

The new bill, filed in the House on Wednesday by Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), is officially titled the “Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act.” The the bill passes, it would remove cannabis from the federal Controlled Substances Act.

“While the bill number may be a bit tongue in cheek, the issue is very serious. Our federal marijuana laws are outdated, out of touch and have negatively impacted countless lives,” Blumenauer said in a press release. “Congress cannot continue to be out of touch with a movement that a growing majority of Americans support. It’s time to end this senseless prohibition.”

The plan is to federally legalize marijuana by the end of 2019.

Fingers crossed.
