The bill currently active in Congress, which was introduced on February 5 of this year by Rep. Jared Polis (D-Col.), would:

remove marijuana from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act;

revise the definition of “felony drug offense” to exclude conduct relating to marijuana;

prohibit the transporting of marijuana into any place where its possession, use, or sale is prohibited;

require marijuana producers to purchase a permit like commercial alcohol producers do;
subject marijuana to the federal provisions that apply to intoxicating liquors and distilled spirits;

and reassign jurisdiction of marijuana regulation from the Drug Enforcement Administration to the renamed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana, Firearms and Explosives.

Said Representative Polis,

This legislation doesn’t force any state to legalize marijuana, but Colorado and the 18 other jurisdictions that have chosen to allow marijuana for medical or recreational use deserve the certainty of knowing that federal agents won’t raid state-legal businesses. Congress should simply allow states to regulate marijuana as they see fit and stop wasting federal tax dollars on the failed drug war.

Now that doesn’t mean that Representative Polis is a Democratic version of former Congressman Ron Paul. It doesn’t mean that he is a libertarian. It doesn’t mean that he opposes the wasting of federal tax dollars on anything else. It doesn’t mean that he wants all the states to legalize marijuana, for medical use or otherwise. It doesn’t mean that he favors the legalization of drugs besides marijuana. All it means is that, at least on this issue, Representative Polis wants to transfer the oversight of something from the federal government to the states; that is, at least on this issue, he wants the federal government to follow the Constitution.

The Constitution nowhere grants to the federal government the authority to have anything to do with marijuana or any other drug. No regulations, no restrictions, no drug schedules, no controlled substances, and certainly no prohibition.

Maybe Congress should read it sometime.

Yah, sure. And go back to when politics was a part time gig, where they had to hold down a real job in the real economy? I don't think so.

I was listening to a "greeny" today describe the T-party candidates who were fighting obamacare. He said these guys went into politics on a principle, not as a career. That they didn't give a damn about the party or re-election, they came to make a stand and were more than willing to return to their private sector jobs if that stand took them down. He said, speaking strictly from a political point of view, they were insane. I got a kick out of that.

If you can't counter assertions with something at least funnier, if not more accurate, it says more about you than it does anyone.

Most of the cats that founded this nation would be viewed as insane today. Guess you have to laugh, if not you'll cry when you see how far we have fallen. Heard this today on radio concerning the nation's first President:

As the delegates filtered in the week and a half prior to the start of the Constitutional Convention in May of 1787, George Washington turned to Gouverneur Morris and said:

“It is too probable that no plan we propose will be adopted. Perhaps another dreadful conflict is to be sustained. If to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disapprove, how can we afterwards defend our work? The event is in the hand of God.”

If I can interrupt your confetti throwing for a minute...
John McCain's position and the position of multiple republican senators on the defunding issue hasn't been properly explained in here. But putting that aside, his record has been exemplary as both a senator and a soldier. The man was a POW longer than Obama was a senator and he was the extraordinary leader who refused to leave his men behind so he could come home due to Washington connections. We shouldn't ever forget that.
Maybe you're caught up in your enthusiasm over Ted Cruz but I'm a taken aback of how incredibly disrespectful you're being to an American who has put his country ahead of himself again and again. "McLame" and such isn't okay. He doesn't deserve that.
Again, I appreciate your enthusiasm about the new kid on the block but maybe you could leave out kicking the old workhorse McCain as part of your party games.
Two things to note about Cruz. One he's doing this in great part to position himself as presidential candidate in 2016 so his motives aren't as entirely selfless and pure as you're making them out to be and two, if this strategy of his isn't the correct one, he's running full throttle into a standing bayonet and his 15 minutes will be up.
Most of this I agree with. When McCain ran I strongly supported him. I do think in recent times with him calling certain people hobbits from middle earth it wasn't his best moment. And I get the frustration. People like the former Sec. of State Powell saying that the republicans need to be bigger tent, making a case for moderates like McCain and Romney, how has that worked out? Don't pretend to know what the answer is but do think term limits across the board would be a great start.

Much as it would otherwise pain me to say such a thing, I have respect for any Tea Party Republicans, it would be the 'politically insane' ones. Unfortunately, the majority of Tea-party Republicans, don't fit this description, and are far more 'ideologically insane' than politically so...in that most of them have been just as busy stumping for re-election as any Democrat, since they took office.

Talk about 'all hat and no cattle'....

How's that 'hand of God' thing working out, so far?

Perhaps you should consider that the hand of God has steered us in this direction...his hands are much stronger than our own, after all...aren't they?

Fine. Oh make no mistake whatever happens it is indeed in His hands. It always has been. Every look at pictures of people from many years back? Last year at the Tampa airport they had some from close to a hundred years ago. What struck me was the way people dressed. Even in the last 25 years just getting on a plane I've noted changes.

Like this?

When the Founders wrote the Constitution, they intended to signify the importance and power of each branch of government in the order that the powers are granted. The Founders saw the legislative branch as the most powerful of the three with the executive being weaker and the judicial branch being the weakest. It was the intention of the Founders for the judicial branch to serve as a final backstop against oversteps of government power.

Not thinking many in government at this time seem to be such a fan. Like the dear leader that makes end runs around other parts of our government because he just knows whats best. Example epa madness.

????

Of course Democrats are in the definition of 'American voters'. You couldn't have over 60% of the voters being opposed to obamacare without having a sizeable number of Democrats in that mix.

A Foul Tragedy
Garrison Keillor
In These Times magazine, November 2005
There are more folks in prison for marijuana than for violent crimes.
There are numerous reasons for this:

1) Marijuana is a branch of the hemp family, and Big Oil doesn't want to be hemp farmers. As long as marijuana is considered a scheduled drug, industrial hemp will also remain illegal.

2) Marijuana is easy to grow, and Big Pharma wants to remain one of the only two industries legally allowed to profit from it. As long as its possession by the unlicensed is criminally prosecuted, they will.(Of course the drug cartels, and the black market, are an acceptable part of this business model.)

3) Big Prison is the only OTHER industry allowed to profit from marijuana, although these profits are incidental to its legality, or the lack thereof.(Of course the drug cartels, and the black market, are an acceptable part of this business model, as well.)

4) Big Fed, otherwise known as the DEA, has far too much pride invested in the "War on Drugs." to go back now. Should marijuana suddenly become de-criminalized -or made entirely legal- Big Fed suddenly looks like a stone fool. They can't be having that, even though we've already repealed prohibition once, because it didn't work.

It still hasn't worked - for the American People. Working just fine for the above folks though. Don't see it happening anytime soon, but willing to work to make it happen eventually.


Legalize it.

I have absolutely no problem with John McCain's military service. He acted heroically, and deserves respect for that service.

What I have a problem with is John McLame as a Senator. He is probably second only to obama on how many of his core values he has surrendered... Kerry, bailouts, immigration, obamacare... where does it stop.

Not as a Senator, he hasn't.

If the Democrats had chosen Hillary as their candidate instead of obama, I would have voted for her over McLame.

Canadian born U.S. citizens are ineligible to become President of the USA. Unless I'm mistaken, Ted Cruz was born in Canada.

That's what they said in the House, just before they passed funding the entire U.S. budget, except for obamacare. Why surrender the battle without a fight... that sounds like something Senator McLame would do.
