I did not find any info in the search bar about this. All you weed smokers, or people who follow politics should know about this important piece of legislation. July 23, 2011: Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2011 or HR 2306 Introduced By congressman Ron Paul, would remove the schedule 1 label of marijuana, and make it a states decision on the drugs legal status. Prosecution from the federal government would only be allowed if an arrest was made to an individual transporting between to states borders. Contact your local representative and ecourage him to support HR 2306 today.
So what do you think? will the bill be passed? what are your thought on the bill? is there another way you would handle it? would it be beneficial for the drug to be legalized? i think this is a legitimate topic for political and general discussion...
YOU CAN READ THE FULL TEXT OF THE BILL HERE----
ron paul is the man, when will america realize this ? and yes it would be beneficial if it were legal, have you seen the whole cali's in ?
I hope it passes!!!!!!!!

smfh time to bring up the obvious on a topic that should be a no brainer
Obviously i support this, not because i want to smoke it, but because it's smart
1. It would deprive drug cartels in Mexico of money, which will lead to the following
a. Reduce their capabilities of destroying the Mexican government
b. Reduce the violence in Mexico, and Central and South America, thus not forcing so many people to illegally travel to the US, which can cause problems at the rate it happens in this country. Right wingers who complain about us Latinos should be happen about that
c. It'd finish this STUPID War On Drugs, based off of false reports from Reagan, or was it Nixon.... both are similar morons so I might be confusing them, that said marijuana was dangerous. We waste billions on this stupid shit that ends tens of thousands of lives and forces even more to this country, where we then bitch them out because we forced them to come here
2. It would bring in much needed revenue for this country to function. no shit
3. It would reduce the use of drugs. Based on what? Based off the fact that several countries, such as Portugal, and Spain if I remember correctly, legalized ALL drugs, with government providing these drugs, the use of drugs WENT DOWN
4. We would stop putting people in jail for this stupid shit. We waste millions to keep drug users in jail. Why? they aren't doing shit.
a. This also causes overcrowding of prisons, and in many cases, they drug related offenders are kept in and the violent criminals are kicked out of the overcrowded prisons, which won't help society at all
Dspite this, it WON'T pass because:
1. The War On Drugs is a profit machine. There is money to be made and the following special interests will make sure this doesn't come through
a. Private Prisons off of drug offenders. They run the prison system, a billion dollar business which they won't give up
b. Drug monopolies
c. Defense contractors who profit off the operations in Central and South America
d. A smaller component, the alchohal industry. They don't want as much competition, but they are definetely not as intensely concerned as the first 3
The first 3 have extreme lobbying power and will make sure that our politicians won't support this bill
I'm sure there are others things to add to this, but I can't think of anything else ATM
On another note, Ron Paul is an idiot. Explain how the US will work with 0% income tax. Explain how people will settle with the removal of Social Securty, Medicare and Medicaid, all of which are immensely popular?
I mean he has some great positions, but overall he's an idiot, because it's clear he doesn't have a real deep grasp on the issues. I give him props here though because he's fighting for something that makes sense
it would benifet everybody but the simple fact is the government doesnt care about if the is not harmful to you they just want that money! its the most used drug in america so if it became legal the government,pigs,dea would lose so much money its just fucked up.. but im hoping for the best! im tired of these lil misdemeanors lmao!
