Bill Introduced To Legalize Marijuana

Two Congressmen who have first names for last names, Massachusetts liberal Barney Frank and Texas libertarian Ron Paul, introduced a bill today that would end the prohibition on pot. The bill is modeled after the 21st amendment, which ended the prohibition of alcohol, and is not expected to pass the House — much less survive a veto from Obama. Still, it’s a good first step both for personal freedom and for the end of the pointless and expensive drug war that has gotten us nowhere after fifty years.

  2. Nice Website. I’m a medical marijuana activist myself. I believe that every dispensary that opens is another blow to the failed drug war. I support your efforts.
