WASHINGTON — The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security will hold a hearing next Wednesday, July 10, on “Marijuana Laws in America: Racial Justice and the Need for Reform.” It will be the first congressional hearing in history to examine cannabis in the context of ending prohibition. While the hearing is not expected to focus on specific legislation, it is believed it will set the stage for legislative markups by the full House Judiciary Committee at a later date.
Cannabis Trade Federation CEO Neal Levine received a letter from House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) Tuesday afternoon inviting him to testify as the minority witness. Mr. Levine’s appearance and testimony were requested by the Committee’s minority.
