I’m all for cannabis legalization (seriously California, get on it), but I can’t say I approve of what the Justice Department is doing regarding Colorado and Washington’s laws. If the Federal Government will approve states legalizing cannabis, then there should also be an effort to amend the Controlled Substances Act to remove cannabis from Schedule I and not place the freedom to buy, sell and use this plant at the will of US Attorneys, the DOJ and White House.

As much as I want to see Rand Paul get on a stage and pretend he didn’t worship Aqua Buddha to the 63% of Republicans who are opposed to legalization and laugh at the others who will undoubtedly play the reefer madness card, states need to know that the rule of law is behind them when they chose to legalize cannabis. John McCain and Mitt Romney would not have made the same decision that President Obama and Eric Holder made, and people who want to use and/or make a living off the production and sale of cannabis should be able to know that their freedom doesn’t rely on which party occupies the White House.

I disagree regarding political ramifications for the GOP in 16. Removing it from schedule 1 will have ramifications for the dems. If Obama (proxy for the Justice Dept) does it, repubs will use every single hiccup re. pot legalization to attack dems as soft on horrible drug addiction. This way it remains in the states rights realm where it can be used to attack republicans as hypocrites. The classification can be used as a hammer of government meddling. The dems can use the argument that these state laws are new, and are closely examining the removal.


edit
Pot was non addicting 30 years ago. No one died from it 30 years ago. The public is fickle. All it will take to change public perception is some school bus driver with pot in his system getting hit by a train or something killing every child on board. Mixed with a media bent on creating controversy then there we’ll be. Right back to Nixon.

And plus, the author thinks there can be some kind of bipartisan agreement before the primaries? Is he out of his mind? Does he live in this country? As regards to his very weak argument of being at odds with UN treaties, well where is the UN to punish the use of chemical weapons in Syria?
