For medicinal purposes, if nothing else? It's legal in my state but illegal nationally so as a VA employee I can't use it. If I could use it for my Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, and Insomnia I could likely come off of at least four medications. Utter nonsense.

Sure. We can't even get the GOP Congress to pass non-controversial bills.

Why not, because it makes a Hell of a lot of sense.

I believe that time is coming. However; prohibition of cannabis has ALWAYS been about money and pandering to special interests.

Why Not Make Marijuana Legal at the Federal Level?

My guess is because the marijuana lobby is not as strong($$$) as the alcohol/pharmaceutical lobbies which have bought their politicians well.

I think its time to use the "Execution Vote" for marijuana.

Non-partisan vote to vote out any politician against a mandate by the people.



Would give us more power than the politicians if people would drop their stupid partisanship.
