Congress Pondering Bill That Could Make Marijuana Legal

Marijuana legalization has two pretty high-profile friends in Congress.

Republican Ron Paul of Texas and Democrat Barney Frank of Massachusetts are co-sponsoring a bill that would put an end to the federal criminalization of marijuana.

If passed, the bill would allow the states to “legalize, regulate, tax and control marijuana without federal interference.”

Here is why this is relevant:  medical marijuana is legal in California.  Yet, currently, the federal government can and occasionally still does raid marijuana growers in that state — and also maintains the power to prosecute these growers in federal courts.

Early this month, the Global Commission on Drug Policy put out a report recommending that governments begin decriminalizing drugs, in particular marijuana.
