The National League of Cities (NLC), representing over 19,000 cities, towns and villages across the United States is calling on the federal government to take action on marijuana reform and protect states where cannabis is legal. The NLC passed two resolutions related to cannabis at its conference. The first resolution focuses on marijuana businesses’ access to financial services and implores the Trump administration and Congress to “resolve the conflict between state and federal cannabis laws” and “provide guidance to financial institutions that results in the cannabis market having access to the federally regulated banking system.” The second resolution calls for the removal of cannabis from the list of Schedule 1 drugs under the Controlled Substances Act.
