Guam group supports federal push to reschedule marijuana

A local group is hoping to gain support to include Guam in federal legislation that would allow medical marijuana to be used in states where it's legal at the local level.

On March 10, Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., announced bipartisan legislation that would allow the use of medical marijuana in states where it's legal without fear of federal prosecution, a release from Paul's office states.

The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States (CARERS) Act would reschedule marijuana from a Schedule I to Schedule II drug to recognize its medical use, and would amend federal law to allow states to set their own medical marijuana policies, the release states.
