The House Judiciary Committee approved a bill Wednesday, Nov. 20th for the federal legalization of marijuana. This progressive bill would allow the states to establish their own policies around cannabis. The bill does come with the addition of a 5% tax on cannabis products but also allows states to clear criminals with low level marijuana offenses.

The bill is very likely to pass in the House of Representatives. The challenge lies in its acceptance in the GOP controlled Senate. The bill will probably not be discussed as its been designed currently. 11 states have already legalized cannabis for recreational use so far.
