This bill would remove marijuana and tetrahydrocannabinols (THC) from the list of schedule I controlled substances which have no medical value. It would amend the Controlled Substances Act to exclude marijuana from the law’s regulatory controls and administrative, civil, and criminal penalties. Additionally, criminal penalties for individuals who import, export, manufacture, distribute, or possess marijuana with intent to distribute marijuana would be repealed.
This bill would make it a crime to knowingly ship or transport marijuana into a state where its receipt, possession, or sale is prohibited. Violators would be subject to criminal penalties — a fine, a prison term of up to one year, or both.
