The Hosue passes the act to removed marijuana from the federal controlled substance act. This is big for weed, but why now? Five more states have already decriminalized it in this recent election. This brought it more to the attention of people up the ladder. With the votes coming out in a landslide this could lead to more attention to the subject. It'll likely be on the back burner for the time being. Could this be the first big step into legalizing weed federally? Possibly.
