US Senate releases draft bill to legalise cannabis at a federal level

The US Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer and two democratic senators have released a draft bill that, if passed, would legalise cannabis at a federal level. Cannabis remains illegal at a federal level, despite being legalised for medical use in 37 states and for recreational use in 18 states. A final draft of the bill is due, with feedback on that draft required by 1 September 2021.
