Senate leader wants legal Marijuana Hearing next month

Senator Patrick Leahy wants to clear the air in the debate between states and the federal government over the legal use of marijuana, in what could be a significant hearing on the issue in September.

On Monday, Leahy was reserving the oversized hearing room in the Hart Senate Office Building for testimony. The room is used for big events such as Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

Officially, the hearing is set for 10 a.m. on September 10 and it is about “Conflicts between State and Federal Marijuana Laws.” The hearing is for the full Judiciary Committee.

at least there will be hearings in September. Good.

Is it possable that the Feds

want to try get themselves out in front of the cannabis nullification trend / movement in order to cover up the fact that their authority is being skirted? I guess to save face on the issue.
