Senate Majority Leader: Cannabis Could be Decriminalized by April 20, 2022

By April 20, 2022, cannabis could be decriminalized. At least, that’s the hope of Senate leader Chuck Schumer who says, “Hopefully, the next time this unofficial holiday, 4/20, rolls around, our country will have made progress in addressing the massive overcriminalization of marijuana in a meaningful and comprehensive way,” as quoted by CNBC. “I believe the time has come to end the federal prohibition on marijuana in this country, and I’m working with Sens. Booker and Wyden on legislation to do just that.” Should it happen, it would be substantial news for cannabis companies like Pure Extracts Technologies Corp. (CSE:PULL)(OTC:PRXTF) (XFRA:A2QJAJ), Canopy Growth Corporation (NASDAQ:CGC)(TSX:WEED), Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY), Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE:ACB), and Cronos Group Inc. (NASDAQ:CRON).
