Congress v. Cannabis Prohibition

For a very long time Congress marched lock-step in support of cannabis prohibition.  That is no longer true, here in the early days of re-legalization.  Two stories for your consideration:


California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, along with five other Republicans and six Democrats, has reintroduced legislation to prevent the federal government from criminally prosecuting individuals and/or businesses who engage in state-sanctioned activities specific to marijuana.

HR 1094 states, “Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the provisions of this subchapter related to marihuana shall not apply to any person acting in compliance with State laws relating to the production, possession, distribution, dispensation, administration, or delivery of marihuana.”

Representative Rohrabacher sponsored a budgetary amendment last year to limit federal interference in states with marijuana regulation schemes.

Next, a committee vote in Texas that indicates the end of cannabis prohibition is coming:

In a highly unprecedented move by Republican state Rep. David Simpson of Longview, a Texas bill to legalize marijuana cleared the House panel, with a vote of 5-2.
His argument for the proposal? Marijuana comes from God and therefore shouldn’t be banned from government.

If there is something you can do to bring about the end of cannabis prohibition, get to it.
