Marijuana: Ron Paul co-sponsoring bill asking feds to back off on Amendment 64

Last week, Representative Diana DeGette announced the introduction of a bill asking the federal government to respect the marijuana policies in Washington and Colorado after voters in each state passed pot-law-reform acts, including Amendment 64. Since then, however, the list of legislators co-sponsoring the measure has grown, and among those signing on is Representative Ron Paul, arguably Congress' best-known opponent of the War on Drugs.

Both Frank and Paul have had their names on proposals to legalize marijuana in the past. But Paul's participation, in particular, certainly raises the profile of DeGette's bill, since he has talked about the need to junk the current system long before it was fashionable.

are all the other State "reps" sponsorships. Don't step up for the voters who put you there, then you will be stepped right out. At least Coffman has some political know-how to stand up for voters even if he disagrees.

Call your reps and demand co-sponsorship. I am.
