Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2015
This bill amends the Controlled Substances Act to remove marijuana and tetrahydrocannabinols from the list of Schedule I (high abuse potential, no accepted medical use, and severe safety concerns) controlled substances. However, the bill prohibits shipping or transporting marijuana interstate or from any foreign country into a U.S. jurisdiction in which its possession, use, or sale is prohibited.
Additionally, the bill amends the Controlled Substances Import and Export Act to eliminate marijuana as a controlled substance under such Act.
