American Bar Association Supports Ending Marijuana Prohibition


The American Bar Association (ABA) passed a resolution signaling help to ending federal marijuana prohibition. The ABA is an association “committed to advancing the rule of law across the United States and beyond by supplying sensible sources for legal pros, law college accreditation, model ethics codes and far more.”

Aspect of the ABA’s resolution “urges Congress to enact legislation to take away marijuana from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act,” NORML reported.

It also “urges Congress to enact legislation to encourage scientific analysis into the efficacy, dose, routes of administration, or side effects of frequently utilised and commercially accessible cannabis items in the United States.”

The resolution is aiming to bridge the gap of conflict involving federal and state laws.

“As a young lawyer, I began NORML in 1970 since the legal case required to be produced that the criminalization of marijuana was incorrect, and activist lawyers have constantly played a crucial part in the expansion of the NORML network across the nation,” Keith Stroup of NORML stated. “The approval of this current motion by the ABA, which calls for marijuana to be removed from the Controlled Substances Act altogether, is welcome vindication of the efforts of NORML and all the attorneys who fought against this unjust prohibition for the previous fifty years.”
