Senator Bernie Sanders, a Democratic Candidate for President, has introduced a bill to the Senate to end the Federal Prohibition of Marijuana. Effectively he will be removing it from the DEA’s Schedule 1 categorization which by definition means it has no medicinal value, and makes it equal to more harmful substances like LSD and Heroin.

Sanders believes that states should be in full governance of their own laws for cannabis, similar to their control of alcohol and tobacco.
