Congress took a step toward easing its stance on medical marijuana on Thursday.
U.S. Sens. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), Corey Booker (D-New Jersey) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York) introduced a bill that would end the federal prohibition of medical marijuana and take steps to improve research.
The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States, or CARERS, Act would effectively change the Controlled Substances Act, allowing the possession, production and distribution of medical marijuana in states with established marijuana laws.
Jeff Sessions came out yesterday and made an announcement wanting to end the search for Medical Marijuana. Why he is so against it I am not sure. There is probably someone in the background who controls all this who wants them to not end the Medical Marijuana prohibition.
Twenty-nine states, as well as the District of Columbia, have already legalized marijuana, but the CARERS Act would prevent the federal government from prosecuting businesses and individuals in states where medical marijuana is legal, since federally marijuana is still illegal under the Controlled Substances Act.
Yesterday the senate passed a bill increasing sanctions on Russia for interfering with our election and blocked trump from lifting sanctions.
Today they show Sessions what they think of his nonsense.
The Senate has been a green light for Medical Marijuana. It seems as though it is just Jeff Sessions that has the problem with the whole thing. He stated that marijuana is more addicting and harmful than heroin.
Where does he get his facts and information from??
Sessions asked Congress in May to allow the Justice Department to prosecute businesses and individuals in states with medical marijuana laws
