MEDIA ADVISORY: Reps. Gabbard and Curbelo to Introduce Bipartisan Marijuana Data Collection Act

July 23, 2018
Press Release

Media Advisory for July 24—Reps. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) and Carlos Curbelo (FL-26), along with the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) and other supporters, will hold a press conference tomorrow announcing their introduction of bipartisan legislation to evaluate the effectiveness of states’ marijuana policies. The Marijuana Data Collection Act would require the National Academy of Sciences to create a federally recognized report on the status of state-level marijuana legalization policies, including both medical and non-medical use, and the effects of marijuana legalization on public health, safety, the economy, the criminal justice system, and more. The information compiled in the report would help to fill the gap left by the federal government’s unwillingness to accept local, state, and private data related to marijuana policy.
