State Legislature Group Urges Congress to Allow States to Set Own Marijuana Policies

A national group representing state legislatures is calling on Congress to allow states to set their own policies on marijuana and hemp. The National Conference of State Legislatures urged the Obama Administration not to interfere with state marijuana and hemp policies.

The nonpartisan national group approved the policy statement in a voice vote last week, according to U.S. News & World Report.

According to the resolution, “Members have differing views on how to treat marijuana and hemp in their states and believes that states and localities should be able to set whatever marijuana and hemp policies work best to improve the public safety, health, and economic development of their communities.”
