The STATES Act—which stands for Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States—could provide a federal solution to marijuana. Introduced by Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Cory Gardner, the potential bill would allow states to enact and regulate cannabis regulation free from federal overreach.
Vermont has officially become the ninth state to legalize marijuana for recreational use. The new law took effect over the weekend and gives residents certain rights with respect to the cannabis plant.
