(CNSNews.com) - The marijuana-legalization bill that passed the House of Representatives on Friday includes a section that makes it illegal to print an “indecent or immoral picture” on a package of cannabis that is offered for sale.

On April 1, the House voted 220 to 204 to pass H.R. 3617, the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act (MORE Act), which is sponsored by Rep. Jerry Nadler (D.-N.Y.)

Only 3 Republican House members voted for the act and only 2 Democrats voted against it.

The report on the bill that the House Judiciary Committee published included a section that said the following: “(d) INDECENT OR IMMORAL MATERIAL PROHIBITED.--no indecent or immoral picture, print, or representation shall be contained in, attached to, or stamped, marked, written, or printed on any package of cannabis products.”

The text of the act includes Section 5932, which is headlined: “PACKAGING AND LABELING.”

 

It says:

“(a) PACKAGES.—All cannabis products shall, before removal, be put up in such packages as the Secretary shall by regulation prescribe. …

(d) INDECENT OR IMMORAL MATERIAL PROHIBITED—No indecent or immoral picture, print, or representation shall be contained in, attached to, or stamped, marked, written, or printed on any package of cannabis products.”
