There have been serious efforts for some time in the Senate to reform federal marijuana prohibition with little success. The most recent being the bill co-sponsored by Kirsten Gillibrand and Rand Paul to simply reschedule cannabis at the same level as alcohol and nicotine. As far as I know, it never got out of committee.

Whatever happens in the Senate, it may be a moot point as the conservative crowd in the House seems hell bent on not only continuing the War on Drugs, but ratcheting it up. Thankfully we have some crusaders at the state level who have simply done an end run around the federal government on this issue and moved forward with efforts to end the insane prohibition on cannabis.

Maybe they should have a "joint" session of Congress to figure it out.

This is great news. Obviously there's no guarantee that this will get off the ground. But the fact that Booker has introduced such a bill gives me some hope. I think it's only a matter of time........Sessions' nomination was certainly a wrench thrown into the progress towards marijuana legalization though.

Stoned people don't fight back, they don't protest, they are easily dominated and controlled. In a Continuity of Government implementation scenario, the stoned people would be the easiest to round up and corral into an encampment. They'll probably pass out pot at the FEMA camps till they are ready to euthanize the sheeple.

Yeah, just like this apathetic sheeple here:

Very sad. You would think with the crazy opioid problem killing people left right and center that they would finally come to their senses and legalize pot and create revenue from it while also freeing up all of that wasted law enforcement that haven't done a thing to stop anyone from using marijuana. They are pissing away money against something that kills nobody which could be used to fight and at least save some lives from this insane opioid and heroin epidemic that is killing Americans at an incredible pace.


BrerRabbit - 8/9/2017 at 06:22 PM

You nailed it 68, as usual. It's clear by now that cannabis is a threat to the Drug War Industry.

Is this the first plank of a democratic agenda, although Where is Pelosi on this? That is the question .


Sang - 8/9/2017 at 11:37 PM

No, the question is where is Sessions on this......

What does Pelosi have to do with this? You really need to get out more.....


BrerRabbit - 8/10/2017 at 03:28 AM

The feds are hogtied by the mob, dems repubs, doesn't matter, they have all dragged their feet on this. Obama was weak on herb reform too, but at least they backed off, now we have Sessions, go directly to jail do not pass go do not collect 200. Duh.

Opioids are not the problem, misuse is the problem. IF someone is using Fentanyl, or any opioid drug, they should keep a log of what they took and when, then they will NOT overdose. They can learn to ladder their medication to get the most out of it, minimizing potential bad effects if they have severe pain; if the pain is going to be longer than a month or so, they need to see a pain management physician who does injections and/or iv pain maintenance. Pain is real, people should not have to live with it. All this jumping up and down about it, legislation is not the answer. Education and responsible medication management is. Dimetapp was not the problem, but four fat women in Connecticut couldn't manage their diets or the underlying psychological problems that caused them to become fat, so they punished everyone because of 4 fat women. It's just wrong.
