POTUS Moves To Reclassify Pot

The Biden administration is moving forward with a proposal to reclassify marijuana from a schedule one to a schedule three drug.

The Department of Justice issued a notice of proposed rulemaking Thursday to reclassify marijuana to a less restrictive category.

The change reflects a major shift in cannabis policy across the country, as dozens of states over the last decade have legalized recreational marijuana.

The rule change is subject to a 60-day public comment period.

In a video posted on X, President Biden called the proposal an "important move toward reversing longstanding inequities."
