Vox: “For first time, the Senate will consider legalizing medical marijuana”

Vox.com reports on a new initiative in Washington D.C. that will expand freedom for users of medical marijuana:

1Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY), Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) on Tuesday will introduce a bill that would legalize medical marijuana at the federal level.

2The bill would reclassify marijuana in the federal scheduling system from schedule 1 to 2.

3The bill would also permanently prohibit the federal government from shutting down medical marijuana operations in states where pot is legal for medicinal purposes.
