Washington, D.C. -- Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) on Friday introduced legislation that would legalize marijuana at the federal level, designating the measure S. 420 in a nod to cannabis culture.The bill, known as the Marijuana Revenue and Regulation Act, would “responsibly legalize, tax and regulate marijuana at the federal level,” according to the Democratic side of the Senate Finance Committee, where Wyden is the ranking member. 
The measure is one of three bills in a broader legislative package — the Path to Marijuana Reform — introduced by Wyden and, in the House, by Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), a member of the Ways and Means Committee. The package aims to “preserve the integrity of state marijuana laws and provide a path for responsible federal legalization and regulation of the marijuana industry.”“The federal prohibition of marijuana is wrong, plain and simple," Wyden said in a statement Friday. "Too many lives have been wasted, and too many economic opportunities have been missed."“The American people have elected the most pro-cannabis Congress in American history and significant pieces of legislation are being introduced,” Blumenauer said. “The House is doing its work and with the help of Senator Wyden’s leadership in the Senate, we will break through.”The package also includes the Small Business Tax Equity Act, which aims to prevent marijuana businesses “from getting hit with an unfair tax bill” and another measure that seeks to “shrink the gap between federal and state marijuana policies.”Source: Hill, The (US DC)Author: Aris FolleyPublished: February 8, 2019Copyright: 2019 The HillContact: editor thehill.comWebsite: -- Cannabis Archives

50 Years Ago Today: Here’s What Newspapers Said About Cannabis.
By Monica Zurowski, Calgary Herald	on February 7, 2019. 
Cannabis — along with last year’s legalization of its recreational use in Canada — has dominated headlines in recent months. than a year after I discovered that governments had been lying about cannabis, Federal Prohibition had already been in effect for 32 years. We've been waiting, watching and advocating for legalization far too long.
