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 congress.gov 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.

Current electric generation

Current electric generation systems are really bad for the environment. Switching to solar energy with your own solar panel system not only makes good sense for the environment, it makes good sense for your bank account. Since solar energy doesn't burn fossil fuels it's safer and cleaner than traditional electricity. On average, when you switch with us and use a solar panel system it will help offset nearly 100,000 pounds of carbon dioxide.

I FOUND THE CURE

I was diagnosed of genital Herpes for 8 years, and ever since then i have been taking treatment to prevent outbreaks, burning and blisters, but there was no improvement until i came across testimonies of Dr. Timothy on how he has been curing different people from different diseases all over the world, then i contacted him. After our conversation he sent me the medicine which i took according to his instructions for up to 21 days. After completing the medication i went back to my doctor for another test and the virus was all gone and i was completely cured, since then i have not had any signs of outbreak. I'm so filled with joy. With herbal medication Herpes Virus is 100% curable. I refer Dr. Timothy to everyone out there with the virus. His email address is [email protected] OR website https://5dc41d5b6d60d.site123.me
