Be better if we gave the death penalty for dealers and fined the hell out of the users.

As long as alcohol is legal........it is very hard to defend keeping marijuana illegal.

This is NOT a legalization bill. All it will do is put the law in the state's hands and the feds can't overrule it. The STATES have to legalize it if this ever goes through.
