Default Sen. Chuck Schumer has introduced a new bill to decriminalize and regulate marijuana

Well from allowing farmers to grow HEMP to this.. Opinions anyone?


Schumer introduces bill to federally decriminalize marijuana

By Annie Geng, CNN 6 days ago .

Sen. Chuck Schumer has introduced a new bill to decriminalize and regulate marijuana at the federal level.

The legislation, which the New York Democrat announced back in April, would remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act, where it is classified among drugs such as heroin and LSD.

By striking marijuana from the act, Schumer's office said in a news release Wednesday, the bill would effectively decriminalize the drug at the federal level.

'The measure would still allow states to determine their own marijuana laws while maintaining federal law enforcement against trafficking to states where it is illegal.'

Dem's trying for all the votes. The GOP should back it.. IMHO..

Of course. Dumb down the population and they are easier to control.

No, I'm not talking about the effects of POT. I'm talking about the effects of making illegal behavior acceptable, one tiny step at a time until acceptance is is so wide spread we can go national.

From unfettered immigration, to welfare economies, to shoplifting. The left is decriminalizing any and all activities that make the USA successful and proud.

I support this. It is well past time to end the idiotic war on drugs. But it's been great for people in the private penal institution business. Terrible for our country.

I'm not sure how continuing the war on drugs is supposed to have made the country successful and proud, particularly given the history behind the criminalization of marijuana. Add to that our societal hypocrisy while we embrace a far more dangerous and impactful drug use (alcohol) as legal!

Aside from Pruitt stepping down today the only thing I'd like to hear more is that Jeff Sessions would go to. And take his archaic 19th century attitudes with him. Not that I'm saying that about you Franc. I'm just completely over all the old school rationalizations about the illegality of pot. Seriously, if you are not aware of "how" it became illegal look into it. Good old Randolph Hearst had a lot to do with it. And don't forget that movie, Refer Madness!

I agree. The Constitution doesn't grant the federal government the power to wage a drug war, anyway. The government has expanded way beyond the limited powers it is supposed to have and it is time to rein it in.

That's why the GOP should back this effort. Get up to date sort of.
