The House decriminalises marijuana; the Senate should follow

Adult use of cannabis is now legal in eighteen states across the country.

These states have chosen to regulate and tax adult use of cannabis rather than continue to treat it as a problem to be contained by cops, courts, jails, and prisons.

A 5 percent tax on cannabis products, which would rise to 8 percent, would allow some marijuana convictions to be expunged

 And would urge a review of sentencing for marijuana-related crimes — all while making small businesses that smoke money.

But despite Chuck Schumer's best efforts, Nadler's MORE Act has little chance of passing the Senate, where it needs 60 votes to pass.

Republicans and Democrats in Congress should not be afraid to do what 68 percent of Americans want, including 50% of Republicans and 71% of independents.
