• Action Alert: Garrett introduces bill to decriminalize marijuana federally

    http://www.roanoke.com/news/politics...d30dbc17c.html

    H.R.1227 - To limit the application of Federal laws to the distribution and consumption of marihuana, and for other purposes.

    https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-...rrett%22%5D%7D

    how to contact your congressmen http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

    Rep. Tom Garrett, R-5th, introduced legislation Monday that would federally decriminalize marijuana, according to a news release from his office.

    The Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017 would take marijuana off the federal controlled substance list if it is passed.

    The release stated that the bill would fulfill “a responsibility to create a level playing field across the country.”

    “Statistics indicate that minor narcotics crimes disproportionately hurt areas of lower socio-economic status, and what I find most troubling is that we continue to keep laws on the books that we do not enforce,” Garrett said in the release. “Virginia is more than capable of handling its own marijuana policy, as are states such as Colorado or California.”

    This bill originally was introduced by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in 2015, but the legislation died.

    Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat representing Hawaii's 2nd Congressional District, is the lead original cosponsor on Garrett’s legislation.

    Garrett’s bill comes after U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said there’s more violence around marijuana than people think.

    Sessions is reviewing the previous administration’s memo to the Justice Department that gave states flexibility when it comes to passing marijuana laws.

    Eight states, as well as the District of Columbia, have legalized recreational marijuana use.

    I've thought for a long time that the main problem with most countries is the "one man-one vote" principle. I think this is why most countries move towards socialism until they go bankrupt. The founding fathers warned about this and that's why they wanted us to be a republic, not a democracy. I think it's morally flawed to allow parasites to have the same voting power as the hosts they steal...
