Progress on Capitol Hill: The Fast Track to Ending Federal Cannabis Prohibition and Embracing Regulation

May 2, 2023

The United States has witnessed significant progress towards ending federal cannabis prohibition in recent weeks. Rep. Nancy Mace has secured a commitment from Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy to hold a committee hearing for her bill, which aims to end federal cannabis prohibition. This development, along with the legalization of adult-use cannabis in Delaware, Minnesota on the brink of doing the same, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) updating its policy on cannabis use by applicants, and the U.S. Secret Service revising its policy on cannabis use by prospective agents, signals that we are nearing the end of federal cannabis prohibition.
