Marijuana in America

House committees are moving forward with legislation to resolve the conflict between state-passed marijuana laws and the federal prohibition on marijuana.

As Chairman of the Rules Committee, I look forward to moving those bills to the House floor, where I believe we will have a strong, bipartisan vote. Right now, we need your help. Add your name to support the legalization of marijuana at the federal level.

Marijuana criminalization has sent hundreds of thousands of nonviolent offenders to prison, ruining lives and shattering families.

  • It’s denied patients access to crucial medication.
  • It’s allowed the Trump administration to threaten a pointless federal crackdown in the states that have already legalized marijuana.
  • It’s wasted billions of dollars in an ill-conceived war on drugs, while forgoing billions more in potential revenue.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans support ending the prohibition of marijuana. Do you? Add your name to support the legalization of marijuana at the federal level.
