Marijuana have been removed from the list of federal controlled substances in the United States of America.
The landmark bill was passed by the US House of Representatives after the bill voting favour states to decide whether the substance is discriminating or not.
This is the first time either chamber of Congress has voted on the possibility of national decriminalisation of the drug.
The 228-164 vote in favour of the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act (MORE Act) stands little chance of passing the Republican-led Senate, but reflects a national swing in opinion away from criminalising those that manufacture, distribute, or possess marijuana.
Fifteen states plus the District of Colombia have made marijuana fully legal, with a further 12 decriminalising it and allowing medical use. Only in six states is marijuana fully illegal.
Arizona, New Jersey, Montana, and South Dakota voted to legalise the drug on 3 November.
