Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, along with Senators Cory Booker and Ron Wyden, announced their bill to deschedule cannabis at the federal level last week. Called the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act, the legislation remains in draft form and will be circulated among Senate Democrats for feedback and revisions before being formally introduced sometime later this year.

“This is a historic day,” Booker said at a joint press conference. “This is the first time in United States history the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate is leading the call to end prohibition of marijuana.” Here’s the full story.—Danny Sullivan
