But with state after state passing laws do decriminalize, offer medical access or flat-out legalize marijuana, it is unsurprising that the public and political support has spilled into the federal realm. Now, Congress is about to review four different marijuana bills, each with their own list of outcomes, according to Yahoo Finance.
