From House Committee on Oversight and Reform:

Members and witnesses concluded that the federal government should establish protocols to regulate cannabis as it does alcohol—including by removing cannabis from the list of controlled substances.

  • In response to a question from Chairman Raskin about the comparison between past liquor prohibition and the marijuana prohibition, Ms. Snider stated:  “Once it is more morally acceptable or more societally acceptable by consensus, people agree to legalize and regulate it.  We’re starting to see that with cannabis.”  She continued:  “That is what I was seeing on the street as a police officer.  It’s not looked at as taboo as it once was.”
