H.R. 5843 is sponsored by Massachusetts Democrat Barney Frank and co-sponsored by Texas Republican Ron Paul, among others. The bill carries a very reassuring title, too: Act to Remove Federal Penalties for Personal Use of Marijuana by Responsible Adults.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

The Revolt

don't believe the governments anti-cannabis prohibitionist propaganda.

I enjoy Mr. Frank's style, and sometimes his political positions are all right... Now if we could only get him to sign on to the Federal Reserve Transparency Act.

I would but everytime I try, it freezes up my system. :)

Wicked--hopefully this is true legalization

And not something along the lines of what the mj-legalization-fascists are advocating.

Great bill, it's about states' rights

Thomas Jefferson once said, "The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground."

Well, I guess he called that one.

Although this happens quite

Although this happens quite often and fails, this is another good step.

Hopefully this time it will gain more support. I think I just need to bust in some hazed up mary jane forums and teach them how to get co-sponsors the effective way
