The Democratic takeover of Congress could mean cannabis could be legalized by the end of the year, with Senator Ron Wyden(D-Oregon) taking a big swing by unveiling his totally chill HB420:

Wyden (D-Oregon) in February introduced legislation that would legalize cannabis at the federal level.

The bill is named S. 420 in a nod to cannabis culture.

Also known as the Marijuana Revenue and Regulation Act, the bill would “responsibly legalize, tax and regulate marijuana at the federal level.”

The proposal, identical to a bill in the House, aims to ease the longstanding conflict between states where cannabis is legal in some form and the U.S. government, which categorizes marijuana as a dangerous illegal drug, similar to LSD or heroin.

Former House Speaker John Boehner, who sits on the board of cannabis company Acreage Holdings, recently announced the formation of an industry-backed lobbying group that would push for national marijuana reforms.
