Legalize Marijuana

HR 1013 is not a perfect bill. It’s imperfections are reflected in its title -- “Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act.” We are convinced that neither pot nor booze should be regulated by The State. Nevertheless...

This bill moves a long way in the right direction. It essentially legalizes pot at the federal level. We believe the passage of this bill would place marijuana prohibition on the road to extinction in all the various states and jurisdictions. It would also end federal interference with states that have already legalized pot either for medical or recreational use.
