Apparently, tomorrow is 420
Maybe Barney Frank will bring some brownies.
Congress is voting tomorrow on an amendment, introduced by U.S. Reps. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), to bar the U.S. Justice Department -- which includes the DEA -- from spending taxpayer money on raiding, arresting, and prosecuting patients who are using medical marijuana in the 11 states where it's legal.
Action Alert time: Go here and let your Congressperson know how you want them to vote.
No matter what side of the legalization debate you’re on, this is a totally separate issue. In states where medicinal use of marijuana is legalized, there is no reason for the feds to go after users. This is a state’s rights issue, and one that should be fully supported.
I’d also like to see where the state’s rights toting (not toking) Conservatives fall in regards to this issue.
