"House lawmakers introduced legislation in Congress today to end the federal criminalization of the personal use of marijuana."
"The bipartisan measure, HR 2306 – entitled the ‘Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2011’ and sponsored by Massachusetts Democrat Barney Frank and Texas Republican Ron Paul along with Reps. Cohen (D-TN), Conyers (D-MI), Polis (D-CO), and Lee (D-CA) – prohibits the federal government from prosecuting adults who use or possess marijuana by removing the plant and its primary psychoactive constituent, THC, from the five schedules of the United States Controlled Substances Act of 1970."
State laws in place regarding criminality or legality of marijuana/THC would, of course, still be in place, so this would not make the plant legal nationwide.
