CONGRESSMAN’S MEMO: “BLUEPRINT TO LEGALIZE MARIJUANA”
Say what you want about the Democrats, but at least they’re cool with marijuana.
Okay, maybe that was a bit too much. They’re cooler than the Republicans. How’s that, better?
One democratic congressman named Earl Blumenauer, from Oregon, has an idea that he hopes will become a reality if and when the Dems take control of the House.
He writes in the memo:
“Congress is out of step with the American people and the states on cannabis. We have an opportunity to correct course if Democrats win big in November. There’s no question: cannabis prohibition will end. Democrats should lead the way.”
“Almost every standing House committee has jurisdiction over some aspect of marijuana policy. Within the first six months of the new Congress, these committees should hold hearings, bring in experts, and discuss potential policy fixes.”
