Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) announced Monday that he plans to reintroduce his Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act on Wednesday.
If passed, the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act would end the federal prohibition on marijuana.
WATCH | Four lawmakers representing states that have legalized weed have launched the first ever Congressional Cannabis Caucus earlier this year.
The bill would remove marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug and would transition marijuana oversight from the jurisdiction of the Drug Enforcement Agency to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. It would essentially do exactly what the title of the bill says by treating marijuana like alcohol under federal statute.
Polis said in a press release that he is reintroducing this bill despite the fact that the Trump administration has "made statements indicating 'greater enforcement' of federal law prohibiting recreational marijuana use."
