National Conference Of State Legislatures Resolves To Let States Set Their Own Marijuana Policies

National Conference Of State Legislatures Resolves To Let States Set Their Own Marijuana PoliciesWashington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–August 13, 2015.  States and localities should possess the legal authority to establish marijuana policies that are divergent from those of the federal government, according to a resolution enacted last week by the bipartisan National Conference of State Legislatures.

The resolution affirms that states and local communities “should be able to set whatever marijuana and hemp policies work best to improve public safety, health, and economic development [in] their communities.” It calls on Congress to amend federal laws, including the Controlled Substances Act, to “explicitly allow states to set their own marijuana and hemp policies without federal interference.”

Founded in 1975, the National Conference of State Legislatures fights against unwarranted Congressional actions into state legislative affairs.
