The House will vote on legalizing marijuana next month.

States would still have to vote to legalize the drug. Marijuana is already legal in 11 states.

Quote
The MORE Act would remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act and erase some cannabis criminal records. The vote will come during the September work period, according to an email Majority Whip Jim Clyburn’s (D-S.C.) office that was sent to members Friday.

The email also asked members to indicate if they would support the MORE Act by Sept. 3.

Why is this important? Neither chamber of Congress has ever voted on removing marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act.

“A floor vote on the bill would be the greatest federal cannabis reform accomplishment in over 50 years,” said Randal Meyer of the Global Alliance for Cannabis Commerce.

Quote
This bill, H.R. 3884 (116), was introduced by House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) last fall and passed the House Judiciary Committee by a vote of 24-10 in November. Reps Matt Gaetz (Fla.) and Tom McClintock (Calif.) were the only Republicans on the committee to vote for the bill.

Quote
Does this mean cannabis will be legal? No, the odds of this bill passing in the Senate are still very slim, given the opposition of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. During this week’s Republicans National Convention, speakers criticized Democrats for purportedly prioritizing marijuana sales during the pandemic over more important services like health care and religious gatherings.

This is a big one to watch.

=======================================

I want to add a link to the actual bill online if you want to follow it. I also wanted to copy and paste the text from the bill as it is as of 8/31/2020 for reference.

Vaccine Status seems to be alittle harder to get regular information outside of news headlines. I found this website with a list of some familiar ones and where they stand.

So I was on a Facebook thread today (shocking...) and saw a link for https://webamp.org from https://winamp.com which was a big blast form the past. I loved this thing so much clearly because the skins mode was insane.

what is everyone doing for password management? i really trying to harden down my password management. ive started using lastpass.com a month or 2 ago(using a password passwords with at least 24 characters and all symbols). but i'm considering using some thing like onlykey.io for hardware authentication or instead of lastpass maybe using some thing open source like bitwarden.com or sesame multifactor authentication. and what about network password management?

to be hacked right someone needs to crack either at least a 24 random string. or have access to my last pass which would need my password and physical contract with my a device. or my email to my lastpass and password and access to a device. i dont know if that is strong enough?
