Following up on a breakthrough session in the state legislature in which critical workplace and expungement laws were passed, NORML collected dozens of signatures from consumers last Saturday at NuLeaf, Las Vegas.
- The signatures were gathered in support of The Marijuana, Opportunity, Reinvestment and Expungement Act—introduced by Senators Kamala Harris and Jerrold Nadler—more generally known as The MORE Act. The Congressional legislation would decriminalize cannabis federally and remove it from the Controlled Substances Act. Also, Americans convicted of federal marijuna crimes—sometimes prohibited from working in legal weed—could apply for expungement.
- NORML also hosted a full-house meeting this month. Legislative champions of both SBs 132, which protects employee rights, and 192, which seals weed-related criminal histories, provided testimonials on how their bills became law.
