Members of Congress introduced bills to end marijuana prohibition and start regulating and taxing marijuana like alcohol at the federal level. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) introduced the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2013, which would remove marijuana from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act and establish a system in which marijuana is regulated similarly to alcohol at the federal level. It would also remove marijuana from the jurisdiction of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). (See also: Colorado Rep. Jared Polis seeks to legalize marijuana at federal level)
