Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act
No issue better highlights the moral bankruptcy of law enforcement than the federal prosecution of state licensed and legal medical marijuana providers. Since SCOTUS long ago nuetered the 9th and 10th Amendment we now require a federal law that states the obvious; the feds should not prosecute conduct that is legal under state law.
To that end the Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act, sponsored by Barney Frank and Ron Paul et al, would prevent the feds from prosecuting state licensed and legal medical marijuana providers. I’ve already contacted my reps. Click here to voice your support for this compassionate common sense measure.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite political reaction
Hot on the heels on the Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act comes a proposal from village idiot/US Rep Mark Kirk of Illinois (R) as in R you surprised this is a republican idea?))
Mark believes the marijuana today is much stronger than the stuff his friends, George Bush, Barack Obama, Newt Gingrich and Al Gore smoked back in the day. Instead of say, legalizing marijuana and regulating THC content, or requiring labels with the THC “proof” just like we do for alcohol, Mark’s proposes a 25 year minimum sentence for “drug dealers” with “kush” marijuana.
Great idea. Just what our country needs during this recession, more marijuana defendants in federal prison with mandatory 1/4 century sentences. Mark should get his Mensa application in before this sudden burst of genius dissappears.
Mark’s website bills him as pro-personal responsibility. I’ve never understood how personal responsibility equates to throwing adults in jail for a quarter century for possessing a plant. What is responsible about blind obedience to tyranny? That’s not responsibility, that obedience to your government masters.
