CARERS ACT – H.R. 127 and Downscheduling Marijuana

Get an update on the Carers Act 2019 – H.R.127 –   Introduced by Rep. Steve Cohen on 01/03/2019.

Bipartisan legislation was introduced on March 10, 2015, in the U.S. Senate proposing to change federal law such that states could regulate the medical use of marijuana without fear of prosecution. The bill called the CARERS Act, or “The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States Act,” was introduced by Senators Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York), and Cory Booker (D-New Jersey), and would end the federal ban on medical marijuana and implement a series of reforms long sought by advocates.

CARERS Act

CARERS Act

The major aim of the six-part legislation (S.683) is to reclassify or “downschedule” marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act to Schedule 2 and put marijuana in the same class as opioid narcotic pain relievers such as morphine and oxycodone. Currently, marijuana is on the Drug Enforcement Agency’s Schedule 1 list, the most restrictive classification of controlled substances. The downgrading would change the cannabis plant from a federally-criminalized substance, allowing doctors to recommend its use for medicine, expanding access to researchers and making it easier for banks to provide services to the cannabis industry.

Nevada Senator Dean Heller (R-Nevada) announced on March 11, 2015, that he will be cosponsoring the bill to let states like Nevada determine their own medical marijuana laws.
