Tulsi Gabbard's Argument For Legal Cannabis Could Be The Best Ever. A MUST Watch!
The legalization train for cannabis just keeps picking up steam, and this is the best argument made yet. Read on and watch to learn more!
In late February, Hawaiian Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard proposed a bill that, if passed, would decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, meaning it would no longer be under Department of Justice jurisdiction.
Co-signing H.R. 1227 “The Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act,” Gabbard and Republican Scott Taylor of Virginia indicate that the removal of taboo and harsh penalties on marijuana consumption and production is no longer a strictly liberal platform.
Since the bill's introduction February 27, other prominent lawmakers have signed on, including Jared Polis of Colorado (D), Earl Blumenauer of Oregon (D), Don Young of Arkansas (R), Justin Amash of Michigan (R), and Dana Rohrabacher of California (R).
So far, the bill has been referred to the House Energy and Commerce Committee, as well as the House Judiciary. It has also been referred to the subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations, where it will likely meet its strongest resistance.
If passed, though, this bipartisan bill would have a major effect on the nation’s criminal justice system both at the federal and local level, as it would allow law enforcement and prisons to focus on real crime - rather than petty weed offenses.
Watch Gabbard urge her colleagues to support her bipartisan bill:
