Multiple cannabis bills are making their way through the U.S. House and Senate as the call to legalize and regulate cannabis on the federal level strengthens. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), co-chair of the bipartisan Congressional Cannabis Caucus, said she's 'cautiously optimistic' her Republican colleagues will get out of the way of, if not fully support, legislative efforts to reform cannabis laws. "I'm, cautiously optimistic that they ー I won't say support us and what we're doing ー but that they will leave us alone and let us get those bills to the president's desk," Lee told Cheddar. "Hopefully they're allowing ー and this would be very unique with this administration ー the legislative branches of government ... to do its job."
