Ron Paul Introduces H.R. 5842Submitted by windycityatty on Fri, 04/18/2008 - 12:59
Hey everybody, I posted yesterday about Rep Paul and Rep Frank introducing bills into congress dealing with the subject of Marijuana.
Barney Frank's Bill is H.R. 5843 and would decrimanalize up to 100 grams (3.5 ounces or so) of marijuana at the federal level.
Rep Paul's Bill is H.R. 5842 and would protect medical marijuana patients in states that have legalized medical use from federal arrest, harrassment, prosecution, etc...
Both bills should be supported whole heartedly by all of us - as Dr Paul sponsored one and is co-sponsor of the other.
Also, if you think these bills are a good idea, perhaps you would consider joining NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) as they are the preeminent marijuana freedom organization in the country.
Check this out:
You can join NORML for the low low price of $4.20 for a year membership if you sign up on 4/20. I know i know... they borrowed Trevor Lyman's and the Revolutions idea here...but i dont care because I think its important that we support Dr Paul in his crusade against the ridiculous and unconstiutitonal federal war on drugs. Especially the stupdity involved in the war on responsible adult cannabis consumers. In reality, as Dr Paul surely knows, a "war on drugs" is a non-sensical phrase - it IS and always HAS BEEN a war on people and personal freedom. Thank you,
