New Federal Bill Introduced: The Unmuzzle the Drug Czar Act of 2014

Yesterday Representative Steven Cohen of Tennessee introduced The Unmuzzle the Drug Czar Act of 2014 into Congress.ondcp

The goal of the new bill (H.R. 4046) is to “strike provisions that prohibit the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy from studying the legalization of marijuana, that require the Director to oppose any attempt to legalize marijuana, and for other purposes.”

Currently, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and its Director, commonly referred to as the “Drug Czar”, are required by law to “take such actions as necessary to oppose any attempt to legalize the use” of Schedule 1 substances – cannabis included.

The Unmuzzle the Drug Czar Act of 2014 will effectively abolish the statute of the law requiring staff of the ONDCP to lie about cannabis and oppose legalization, if passed.
