First cannabis bill introduced in new Congress
A group of GOP lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives has put forward the first marijuana bill for the newly formed 118th Congress, seeking to amend federal law related to firearm sales to medical cannabis users.
The bill sponsored by Rep. Alex Mooney (R-WV) proposes reforms on the “sale, purchase, shipment, receipt, or possession of a firearm or ammunition by a user of medical marijuana, and for other purposes.”
The proposed legislation introduced in the House on Friday is being cosponsored by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), who serves as a co-chair of the Congressional Cannabis Caucus.
While further details of the measure are not yet available, cannabis publication Marijuana Moment said it appears to resemble a previous bill introduced in 2019, which did not clear the legislature.
