For the first time in American history, law makers have introduced a bill that would make it legal for a person to smoke marijuana. The bill is called HR 2306, or the Ending Federal Marijuania Prohibition Act of 2011. What it does is repeal the law that made it illegal in the first place, The Marijuana Tax Act of 1937. It also removes THC from the list of schedule 1 drugs described as having high potential for abuse with no medical benefits.
If HR2306 is passed, it means there will no longer be conflicts between Federal Laws and State Laws allowing for the legal, medical use of cannabis. It also opens the door for states to legalize marijuana use for all people.
Unfortunately, Congress has been slow to make a move on this bill. Recent polls by Gallop and SurveyUSA show that the majority (although it is a slight majority) of Americans favor the legalization of marijuana. So, if the majority of Americans support legaization, why hasn’t it happened. The answer is easy, but sad, this majority isn’t making enough noise.
The solution to this problem is easy: go out and vote. Yeah, I know, you’ve heard it all before. So, why haven’t you registered? You can’t whine about the system unless you’ve done your part to change it. Think about it, it takes less effort to go out and vote than it does to make an illegal buy. Just take a minute and think about all of the time and effort you have used in the pursuit of some weed. How much simplier life would be if it were legal. Have I irritated you? Good, now follow the link below and sign the petition to Congrass to make HR 2306 law.
