The MORE Act has passed the House!

The MORE marijuana legalization with social justice act has passed the US House of Representatives! This is a big day for drug policy reform.

According to Rolling Stone, the vote was mainly along party lines -- only six Democrats voted against it, and five voted for it. The roll call isn't on yet, so we don't have the list yet.

Phil is working on a Chronicle piece that we'll be posting sortly, and we'll have a longer one next week. We have a full Chronicle story on other good news from this week, namely the UN's reclassification of marijuana in the international drug scheduling system.

What's next for MORE? Whether any legalization bill is likely to get a chance for a vote in the Senate depends on what happens in the Georgia runoff races and whether Democrats or Republicans control that chamber. And the 51-50 majority Democrats will have if they win both Georgia seats will be a challenging environment too.

If there is a chance, one way or another, to move a legalization bill through the process in the Senate, the handful of Republicans who might consider legalization would probably prefer something like the STATES Act, a simpler removal of federal prohibition in states that have passed legalization. Perhaps some Democrats would prefer that too. What our movement's strategy should be in a situation like that is a question about which there will undoubtedly be different opinions, a possible source of contention lying ahead of us.

In the meanwhile, though, this is a time to be happy -- if not about everything in the country and our lives, at least about the MORE Act and the House.

Ouite a few Republicans didn't vote

Almost all Democrats voted for it and almost all Republicans who voted voted against it, but about 20% of Republicans abstained. Seems they weren't in the mood to defy public opinion on weed.

pay someone to take my online class

The successful completion of English coursework assignments in subjects like English language and literature is a prerequisite for a variety of courses. The curriculum, whether it is for language or literature, will account for a significant portion of the total number of grade points on the final examination. Your instructor needs to clearly describe the requirements for the coursework, and it is strongly suggested that you follow to them. It is also highly recommended that you complete the coursework. One of the most common mistakes that students make is the assumption that they have plenty of time to finish their assignments, despite the fact that the due date will soon be upon them. It is possible that you will be needed to deliver two assignments related to the core curriculum for each unit of study. One should be more theoretical in nature, and the other should be one that requires more originality and innovation.

Excellent Environmental Essay Topics

In most cases, the completion of the coursework will consist of three separate parts. You start by preparing the job, and then you produce the first copy of whatever it is. After some sharpening and edging has been completed, you will be required to proceed with your final choice, which will be factored into your overall score. The study of English is universally regarded as one of the most prestigious and interesting fields. Students from all around the world demonstrate their sense of curiosity by studying English at a wide variety of institutions and schools each and every year. Students are drawn to the subject because they find it fascinating, and as a result, they are motivated to fully immerse themselves in its many elements. Students nevertheless want help and ask "do my online statistics class" or "take my online class for me" with their English homework because of the numerous academic duties and assignments that they are required to accomplish.
