There are five pieces of legislation that have been introduced to help the reformation marijuana laws. Congressmen Ron Paul (R-TX) and Barney Frank (D-MA) have teamed up to Sponsor or Co-Sponsor these bills which would put an end to the drug war.
According to Paul, we have spent over one trillion dollars on this war. He believes the decision of regulating this plant should be made at the State level. Dr. Paul states clearly that this is not about legalizing marijuana, but about abolishing the failed war on drugs.
Please call, email and write your Representative about co-sponsoring these pieces of legislation.
