Let's see how far this goes...

Rep. Ron Paul and Rep. Barney Frank introduce legislation to end Federal laws against Mariuana use.

And here's why, kids, the proposed law is over before it even starts...

Quote:
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith said his panel, which the proposed law is required to venture through, would not even consider it . . . "Marijuana use and distribution is prohibited under federal law because it has a high potential for abuse and does not have an accepted medical use in the U.S.," said Smith, who like Paul is a Texas Republican. "The Food and Drug Administration has not approved smoked marijuana for any condition or disease."

here is why it doesn't matter if it is dead in the water, it's just a first step. the first bill for something like this would never pass the main thing is getting a real discussion started.

Quote:
The goal of the bill, HR 2306, is not to legalize marijuana but to remove it from the list of federally controlled substances while allowing states to decide how they will regulate it.

"I do not advocate urging people to smoke marijuana. Neither do I urge them to drink alcoholic beverages or smoke tobacco," said Frank (D-Mass.). "But in none of these cases do I think prohibition enforced by criminal sanctions is good public policy.

"Criminally prosecuting adults for making the choice to smoke marijuana is a waste of law enforcement resources and an intrusion on personal freedom," he added.

Frank admitted in a conference call Thursday that he didn't think the bill had a chance of passing, but according to Reason's Hit & Run blog, the congressman was "particularly struck by the hypocrisy of public officials who will themselves talk about smoking marijuana, wink at it, and

I'd bet Smith is for state right in other matters. I'm not liberal by any stretch but this war on drugs is such a waist of time and money.

Legislating morality gets you votes though

Nothing worse then a bunch of drunks telling people they have no right to get high. That's like someone telling you not to eat junk food while every picture you see of them they are eating ice cream.

Of course, both sides have their inconsistencies, but the far right is off the charts on the hypocrisy scale when it comes to states rights...

-- They're for states' rights except when the state of Oregon passes a doctor assisted suicide law.

-- They're for states' rights except when New York allows homosexual marriage.

-- They're for states' rights but not when California permits medical marijuana dispensaries.

Come to think of it, why do they even say they believe in states' rights?

Re: War on Drugs Cant Be Won, According to Global Leaders

War on drugs a trillion-dollar failure - CNN.com

Strong strong article.

Interesting:"A Pew study says it costs the U.S. an average of $30,000 a year to incarcerate an inmate, but the nation spends only an average $11,665 per public school student. The future of our nations and our children should be our priority"
