    Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has filed two far-reaching cannabis amendments that he wants to be part of a deal to reopen the government.

    One measure would prevent the Justice Department from interfering with state recreational legalization and medical cannabis laws, a big concern in the wake of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s recent rescission of Obama-era guidance that has generally allowed local marijuana policies to be implemented without federal harassment:

    Rand Paul would be the one to try to pass weed legislation during a national crisis.

    SAD.

    If he can get it attached it will either keep the bill from passing or will at least get something good done while they pass garbage, it's a real win-win if he can do it.

    It's brilliant. If Democrats vote against it, suddenly it no longer matters to young voters who shut down the government. The Republicans were forced to vote for the end of Prohibition, but regardless of what they were really voting for, they voted for it.

    This is day 3 of the shutdown. 2 days 11 hours 37 minutes 6 seconds without government.

    May God have mercy on our souls, and support us during this challenging time.
