Cannabis legalization bill approves in the House

A bill in the House on Friday legalized marijuana nationwide and ended the longstanding criminal penalties for those who possess or distribute it. Two Democrats joined all but two Republicans in support of the bill, resulting in a 220-204 vote.

Now that the measure is in the House, Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is working with Democrats to introduce a marijuana legalization bill by spring.
