Federal lawmakers in the U.S. are considering legislation that would legalize marijans legal cultivation, cultivation and sale.
The bill, known as the Marijuan Act, has been languishing in the House of Representatives since late July.
It would allow marijuaans cultivation and cultivation of up to 15 plants, but only if they are grown under “good faith” supervision.
It is unclear whether the bill will pass the Senate.
Marijuas cultivation has been a major issue in the United States, with a number of states legalizing the crop, including Arizona, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah.
A Marijuana Reform Act of 2016 would amend federal law to allow mari-juana cultivation, but not for commercial sale.
The bill would also establish a $10 million fund to support marijuana research.
Mari-juanas legal status has been contentious in the past.
President Donald Trump has said that he does not believe marijuana is a “gateway drug” to violence and that he would enforce federal laws against marijuana use.
Earlier this year, he tweeted that Marijunas legal use was “a big, fat lie.”
In April, the Trump administration announced a plan to allow states to grow marijuana for medicinal purposes.
