US Senator John Hickenlooper Plans Federal Cannabis Reform Bill
Senator John Hickenlooper plans to submit a bill to Congress for US federal marijuana reform.

On the 10th anniversary of the approval of marijuana legalization by Colorado voters, Senator John Hickenlooper announced his intention to submit a congressional bill to prepare for federal marijuana reform in the United States.


According to the Cannabis Times, the "Preparing and Regulating Our Power to Ensure Safety Act" (PREPARE) will direct the Attorney General to establish a committee responsible for providing recommendations on the regulation of the marijuana industry, modeled after the current system in place for alcohol. The committee will aim to effectively prepare regulatory agencies in order to ban the use and distribution of marijuana among adults.


This action is identical to the House companion bill introduced in April by Representatives Dave Joyce, Hakeem Jeffries, and Brian Mast. Staff for Hickenlooper told Marijuana Moment that the Senate version will be formally introduced after the November midterm elections.


The senator believes that the committee that will be established under the proposed bill is similar to a working group he created when he was serving as governor of Colorado. This committee will be responsible for guiding the implementation of legalization at the state level.
