01) Congressman Introduces ‘420’ Marijuana Legalization Bill to Regulate Weed Like Alcohol Throughout U.S.

“Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon introduced a bill Wednesday that would regulate marijuana the same way the government currently regulates alcohol products.

The bill, H.R. 420, seeks to remove marijuana from the list of illegal narcotics under the federal Controlled Substances Act. The bill would also create a nationally regulated industry that would be overseen by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). “420” is slang among marijuana supporters that encourages celebration or smoking of pot on April 20, or at 4:20 on the clock.

Blumenauer, a Democrat from Oregon’s 3rd Congressional District and a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, has worked with representatives from both parties toward legalization of marijuana and cannabis products in addition to seeking progressive reforms on the federal level. Marijuana is currently listed as a Schedule 1 drug defined as having “no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.” Marijuana sits alongside heroin, LSD, peyote and ecstasy on the Drug Enforcement Agency’s list.”

      U.S. states have already legalized it…including many for recreational use…Not all, of course…but, quite a few…

      It’s time for the federal government to step up, and end the “drug war” insanity…

      It’s only a matter of time, before the states do this on their own.
