    Dear Eddie,
     
    Thank you for contacting me to share your concerns about Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinding a key federal policy that has effectively allowed states to determine their own cannabis laws. I share your concerns and appreciate hearing your perspective.
    There is nothing to be gained from going back to an era when federal resources were wasted prosecuting nonviolent cannabis crimes. This decision will create massive uncertainty, hurt local businesses and tax revenue, and harm public safety by driving cannabis activity back into the more dangerous black market.
    States should have the ability to set cannabis policies that work best for them. As Oregon’s senator, I consider it my responsibility to honor the wishes of Oregon voters who have voted to legalize, regulate, and tax medicinal and recreational cannabis sales. Please know that I will continue to support legislation that would help alleviate conflicts between state and federal cannabis policy. 
    For this reason, I introduced the bipartisan SAFE Banking Act (S.1152) to ensure that cannabis-related businesses acting in compliance with state law have access to financial services and the banking system. Additionally, I have partnered with Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) to include an amendment in the government spending package that would allow the Department of Veterans Affairs doctors to discuss and make recommendations about the use medical cannabis to veterans in states where medical cannabis is legal.
    I have also heard from many Oregonians who are concerned about the future of amendments to the Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies appropriations bill, to prevent the Department of Justice from using federal funds to conduct raids on or prosecute people connected with legitimate medical cannabis businesses. I have consistently supported this amendment, which has been law since 2014 and will be aggressively advocating for its inclusion in any upcoming spending package in my role on the Senate Appropriations Committee. 
    Thank you, again, for sharing your views with me. I hope you continue to send your thoughts and observations my way.
     
    All my best,

    Jeffrey A. Merkley
    United States Senator

    Thank you for contacting me about the Marijuana Justice Act. I'm an original cosponsor of this legislation that would legalize marijuana at the federal level, reverse decades of failed drug policy, and prioritize communities of color in addressing the effects of the War on Drugs. 

    In 1973, as a young legislator in Oregon, I supported the decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana. This law was the first of its kind in the United States. That same year, I strongly supported legislation to legalize adult-use of marijuana, another Oregon first. Although this bill did not pass, it launched my commitment to ending our country's disastrous experiment with marijuana prohibition.

    For more than 40 years, I've worked to end the failed federal laws that criminalize the use of marijuana. We are on the right side of history, and the majority of Americans now agree with us, including Republicans.  In 2017, I established the Cannabis Caucus in the House.  This is a bipartisan forum for members to discuss, learn, and work together to establish a better and more rational approach to federal cannabis policies. This caucus is the first of its kind and another sign that we can make progress to reform our drug laws.

    I'm also working with Senator Wyden and we've introduced the most comprehensive marijuana legislative package to date that would bring the federal government in line with the will of the American people. These bills would protect state marijuana laws and offer a responsible pathway for the legalization and regulation of cannabis. 

    This is our path forward. The federal government should get out of the way and allow states to decide if and how they want to legalize cannabis. Ultimately, Congress should end the war on drugs once and for all and focus on shutting down the illegal market and drug cartels, criminal justice reform and addiction and recovery. If you would like to receive updates on this topic and others as we tackle these challenges, please sign up for Earl-news at http://blumenauerforms.house.gov/forms/form/?ID=1.

    Again, thank you for contacting me. I look forward to hearing from you in the future. Sincerely, 

    Earl Blumenauer
    Member of Congress

    If you think creating a consistent product time after time is easy, think again. Product consistency is one of the most challenging aspects of cannabis cultivation. Consumers purchase a strain with certain expectations and, more often than not, are disappointed with the results.
