House Democrats promised their first priority after returning from recess would be to pass the MORE Act. This, in part, would provide payback to their pot drug dealing donors.
Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act This bill decriminalizes marijuana. Specifically, it removes marijuana from the list of scheduled substances under the Controlled Substances Act and eliminates criminal penalties for an individual who manufactures, distributes, or possesses marijuana.

Not only was this a ridiculous priority but it would have further endangered public health and safety in a time of national trouble and unrest.
The “MORE” Act would have created:
- More addiction
- More impaired driving and crashes
- More babies physically impacted by the pot use of their parents
- More student dropouts
- More workplace injuries
- More marijuana induced psychotic breaks
- More missed work days
- More children in ERs with marijuana poisoning
- More ER patients with CHS – Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome
- More broken families dealing with the above
- IN SHORT MORE MISERY

Marijuana is the most dangerous drug in America because what most people think they know about it is wrong.
