SCHUMER'S QUIET GAMBIT AS PROMISED, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) authored wide -ranging legislation that federally decriminalizes cannabis b y removing it from the Controlled Substances Act. The bill was filed quiedy on a Wednesday morning in late June with barely a ripple of notice from a mainstream press focused on the Senate Minority Leader's public t akedown of Rep. Maxine Waters after she said people should confront Trump Administration cabinet members. But the mainstream media may want to pay close attention to this bill, representing as it does Schumer's clever gambit to bring about a situation where, against . all odds, the bill succeeds in gaining the bipartisan support it needs to make it to the president's desk, where it will be signe d into law. Ostensibly promoted by Schumer as supporting states' rights and promoting opportunity for communities impacted b y the War on Pot, the bill contains elements that could make it too delectable a treat for Congress and the president to pass up. First, Section 2(b) removes all import and export prohibitions, making the United States the immediate equal of Canada with respect to cannabis trade worldwide. Second, descheduling cannabis completely opens banking to the industry, unleashing a potential tidal wave of economic growth. The first element sticks it to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau; the second sticks it to Trump's cannabis-hating attorney general, Jeff Sessions. Both men are on the president' s shit list. Therefore, using the proven calculus that payback as the foundation for a Trump decision will win out and this congress will faithfully tow the line, Schumer's gambit has a good shot at succeeding.
