Recent Congressional Action More Proof Marijuana Isn’t Going Federally Legal In 2020

When it comes to handicapping the possibility of marijuana becoming legal at the federal level in 2020, all one needs to do is look at how the cannabis race is winding down this year on Capitol Hill. In case you haven’t been following along over the past few months with the journey to make marijuana part of legitimate commerce in the United States, I’ll just give it to you straight: The chances of pot prohibition coming to a screeching halt in 2020 are slim to none. Worse than that even. In fact, you’d have better luck winning a bet on a three-legged horse with Type-2 Diabetes than any scenario where Congress rises above impeachment proceedings and other partisan pud-pulling shenanigans long enough to legalize weed. Call it pessimism, call it a negative view. But that’s just the way it is. There is no way that Congress is going to approach the new year with a more progressive outlook on weed. So, whatever you do, bet against it.

Anyone who believes 2020 is going to be the year that the marijuana movement actually moves is “cute,” as the kids would say.

Not only has Congress silently killed two pieces of the most highly sought after cannabis legislation that lawmakers could push out of the House in 2019 (SAFE and MORE Acts), it just butchered several cannabis protections from a federal spending bill pertaining to veterans, cannabis banking, and protecting recreational pot states from federal interference.
