Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders just followed through on his recent comments favoring an end to Federal cannabis prohibition by introducing a bill to remove it from Schedule I, the most restrictive schedule in the Controlled Substances Act. This is a bold move that is sure to keep the “cannabis conversation” in the news. The move will also hopefully pin down his primary Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, who has yet to stake out a clear position on the issue by requiring her to say, once and for all, what she would do about cannabis reform if elected to office.
