Senator Wyden Introduces Bill To Remove Cannabis From Controlled Substances List

(Washington, D.C.)  --  The U.S. Senate will consider a bill to remove cannabis from the federal list of controlled substances.  Oregon Senator Ron Wyden is co-sponsoring the bill with Majority leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Cory Booker.  Eliminating cannabis as a controlled substance would allow marijuana businesses to use banks and it would allow federal inmates charged with non-violent marijuana crimes to petition a court for resentencing.  The bill would also create a fund to help communities adversely affected by marijuana laws.
