Ron Paul Legalize Marijuana Bill: 8 Reasons Why It Makes Sense

Barney Frank authored H.R.2306 introduced by Frank, Ron Paul, Conyers, Lee, Polis and Cohen. The legislation aimed to decriminalization marijuana by removing it from schedule of controlled substances — Schedule I(c) of section 202(c) of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 812(c)). The amendment, now with 20 co-sponsors, languishes in committee awaiting additional sponsors.

Seventeen states, including D.C. now have legislation allowing the use of medical marijuana. Seven states have legislation currently pending. However, federal law and state laws are in conflict and will remain so until such legislation as H.R. 2306 or future legislation just like it is passed. This is a state's rights issue and it's time for the federal government to quit playing "Big Brother" and overstepping its bounds.

It is time Congress acted to decriminalize the use of marijuana and here are eight reasons why.

Why not simultaneously? Nice combination of spending cuts and extra revenue.

One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the cut he asked about his bill and the barber replies: "I'm sorry, I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community service this week. The florist is pleased and leaves the shop. Next morning when the barber goes to open there is a thank you card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

That day a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he goes to pay his bill the barber again replies: "I'm sorry, I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community service this week." The cop is happy and leaves the shop. Next morning when the barber goes to open up there is a thank you card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

That day a congressman comes in for a haircut, and when he goes to pay his bill the barber again replies: "I'm sorry, I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community service this week" The Congressman is very happy and leaves the shop. Next morning when the barber goes to open, there are a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

That's why.

:shock:
Robert Griffin is a franchise QB - we are very fortunate

The Redskins FO are working hard to add players that fit the short term plan & hopefully ensure a consistently competitive franchise

Hail to the Redskins

I'm in favor of legalizing cannabis... but this "medicinal marijuana" crap is just that... crap. There are two legitimate effective uses for the stuff... and there are medications that work better for both of them. It's nothing but a cynical abuse of a naive public.

Legalize it... but because it's the right damned thing to do... then tax the crap out of it, like booze.

I agree completely.

I will say this though - it probably produces an appetite better than anything else.

Dammit, FFA... I nailed it. I'm not using it, so it's a perfect source of revenue. Obama and his buddies on the left get a new government buracracy... everybody is happy except the religious right... I can live with that. :twisted:
