Republican Congressman Justin Amash, three other Republicans and three Democrats introduced House bill H.R.1227, Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017.  The bill states:

Prohibition On Certain Shipping Or Transportation.—This Act shall not apply to marihuana . . . .

Removed from schedule of controlled substances.—Subsection (c) of Schedule I of section 202(c) of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 812(c)) is amended—

(1) by striking “marihuana”; and

(2) by striking “tetrahydrocannabinols”

See “It’s 2016, yet the DEA still refers to cannabis as ‘marihuana.’ Why is that?
