New bill ending federal ban on marijuana to be introduced in Congress

• Eric W. Dolan via

Reps. Barney Frank (D-MA) and Ron Paul (R-TX) will introduce legislation on Thursday to the U.S. House of Representatives that ends the federal prohibition on marijuana.

The Oakland Tribute reported that the bill would limit the federal government to enforcing cross-border or inter-state smuggling laws, and allow people to grow, possess, use or sell marijuana in states where it is legal to do so.

Although over a dozen states have legalized the use of marijuana for medical reasons, it is still outlawed under the federal Controlled Substance Act.

The legislation authored by Frank and Paul would allow each state to propose and enforce its own marijuana laws without federal interference.

Federal legalization of weed doesn't have anything to do with anything. The FDA and Big Pharma will still attack the legal users. Just look at the Burzynski video:

Legalizing weed won't change a thing... except if Big Pharma can make a bunch of money off it.
