PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A bill introduced Wednesday by U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer, a Democrat from Oregon, seeks to regulate marijuana like alcohol.
The bill would take marijuana off the federal controlled substances list and establish a nationally regulated industry overseen by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
The bill number is H.R. 420, a tongue-in-cheek nod to 420, the frequently used slang term for marijuana.
