Bi-partisan legislation introduced to legalize medicinal marijuana & end confusing fed pot policy
Bill unveiled to legalize medical pot

Flanked by more than 150 advocates from around the country, Oregon Democrat Earl Blumenauer on Monday put forward his legislation allowing states to legalize medical marijuana in an effort to end the confusion surrounding federal pot policy.

Blumeanuer’s legislation, which has 13 co-sponsors — including GOP Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California — would create a framework for the FDA to eventually legalize medicinal marijuana. It would also block the feds from interfering in any of the 19 states where medical marijuana is legal.

At a press conference outside the Capitol, Blumenauer didn’t attack the Drug Enforcement Agency for targeting marijuana dispensaries or blame the Justice Department for forcing marijuana businesses to operate in a legal gray zone. Instead, he pitched his legislation as a solution to the confusion surrounding federal marijuana policy.

“Frankly, the people in the federal hierarchy are in an impossible position,” Blumenauer said, adding: “It gets the federal government and the Department of Justice out of this never-never land.”

On the heels of successful referendums legalizing marijuana in both Colorado and Washington state, Blumenauer and Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) introduced legislation to end federal marijuana prohibition and set up a scheme to tax the drug.
The activists surrounding Blumenauer had just come from a four-day conference on medical marijuana, and many of them were veterans of campaigns to legalize the treatment in their home states. Some held a sign that wouldn’t be out of place at a tea party rally against the Affordable Care Act — “GET POLITICS OUT OF MY MEDICINE.”

Karen Munkacy, a doctor who helped lead the pro-medical marijuana side of a successful referendum in Massachusetts, said her breast cancer diagnosis forced her to “choose between breaking the law and suffering terribly. And I chose to suffer terribly.”

Scott Murphy, an Iraq War vet, said medical marijuana could help returning soldiers handle post-traumatic stress disorder or physical injuries. Murphy noted 22 veterans killed themselves each day in 2012.

“If medical marijuana could help just one veteran, it would be worthwhile,” he said.

While this doesn't have much of a chance of passing, it's important that we see where members of congress stand re this issue. It goes hand-in-hand with identifying which law makers are in the pocket of Big Pharma, as well as those who are simply out-of-touch with (or don't care about) the medicinal benefits of marijuana.

Cause people who drink alcohol are more persistent than pot smokers. The day we were supposed to make it legal again we were like that was today? Oh well.

 Quoting: mathetes


Righton... there's a growing number of fiscally conservative republicans, such as yourself, that support the legalization and taxation of hemp/marijuana.

If the puppet Obama only had the balls to support this legislation, perhaps he would gain just a little respect. Didn't he indicate his administration wouldn't go after people using maryjane for medical purposes, only to have his federal prosecutors do so anyway, after his election?

Jimmy Carter (ok, not saying a whole lot) was for it... and you know JFK (who i believe Obama likens himself to) was for it, as he smoked it all the time, along with the various other meds he took for his pain/pleasure.


What's the difference between them... who they were/are beholden to, perhaps?

 Quoting: fulcanelli2012


Hrmm... in a parallel universe, maybe the following is being said by the POTUS:

"I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of ending the prohibition on marijuana and taxing it at the federal level. No single project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of the mind; and none will be so easy or inexpensive to accomplish. We propose to accelerate the development of newer strains of marijuana, which will have the ability to not only get you high and relieve those in pain, but satisfy the need for munchies, as well (frankly, I have Michelle in mind, with that last thought). OK, so I'm in trouble when I get back to the crib, now, but my friend Reggie just got me some of stickiest of the icky, which he said should help calm Moochele down a bit. Anyway, we propose to develop alternate liquids for use in bongs, until certain which is superior. We propose additional funds for other strain development, such as one that cures stupidity, for which I will personally partake-in, myself, for not deciding to take this action sooner, along with the Vice President... well, for obvious reasons. - BO"
