Federal Marijuana Legalization Bill Officially Scheduled For House Floor Vote Next Week

Last time the MORE Act went to the floor December 2020, it passed 228-164

The U.S. House of Representatives plans to vote on a bill to federally legalize marijuana for the second time in history next week, congressional leadership confirmed on Thursday.

The body will take up the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act, a bill sponsored by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY). An earlier version of the measure cleared the chamber last session but later stalled in what was then the Republican-controlled Senate.

The legislation, which would remove cannabis from the list of federally controlled substances and promote social equity in the industry, cleared the Judiciary Committee again this session, and activists have been pushing for a floor vote this month.

Rumors of potential floor action next week began circulating on Wednesday, with sources telling Marijuana Moment that while nothing had been confirmed yet, the official vote scheduling appeared imminent based on high-level discussions they were familiar with.
