Rand Paul Introduces Bill To End Marijuana Prohibition

Senator Rand Paul introduces bill to end marijuana prohibition in the US

U.S. Senator Rand Paul has introduced a bill to Congress that will end the federal prohibition of medical marijuana. 

The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States (CARERS) Act will allow the possession, production and distribution of medical marijuana without the fear of prosecution from the federal government.

Marketwatch.com reports: 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.

“The reintroduction of the CARERS Act is the first of many steps we hope this Congress will take to end the federal prohibition of medical marijuana,” Don Murphy, director of conservative outreach for the Marijuana Policy Project, said in a statement. “Polls show overwhelmingly strong support for medical marijuana, and it spans the political spectrum.

“The federal government should not be meddling in state laws that allow it or obstructing research into its many medical benefits.”

The introduction of the bill comes days after news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote a letter to leaders of Congress asking that they undo protections for the industry under the Hinchey-Rohrabacher Amendment. That amendment, which is tied to the federal appropriations bill, prevents the Justice Department from using federal funds to enforce federal prohibition in states with legal marijuana laws.

The act, which was first introduced in 2015, would also allow doctors to recommend medical marijuana to veterans in states where its legal and it would give researchers more access to cannabis to conduct studies, which has been an issue in the industry.

Marijuana is made up of a multitude of cannabinoids — the two most prominent being tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). While THC is the main psychoactive component, researchers believe CBD has potential medical uses. The CARERS Act would remove CBD from the Drug Enforcement Administration’s list of Schedule I drugs, according to Leafly, which would allow states to import it.

    Ron Paul for years, was the only congressman who ever introduced a bill to try to get something done for the people, and they never passed.
    Rand Paul seems to have taken that position now.

    • Morpheus

      Ron Paul did a diservice to this cause, of seeing marijuana legalized for medical purposes, by his support for many things, such as the legalization of all drugs, his xenophobic paranoid psychosis and with his support for white supremacy in general.

      The fact that anyone, & not merely you specifically, would bring up Ron Paul, for any reason, to show support for any idea, of any type, implies, quite heavily, a support for white supremacy.

      So, while I do not completely disregard the possibility that you are trolling, for example, this question is valid based on the reality that their are so many damned idiots that worship at…”…the Alter of Ron Paul”…

      Why do you support white supremacy??

      • Arrow Durfee

        Obviously we have a fucking idiot here

        • Morpheus

          @AD: I’m right! That pisses you off. You don’t really have an argument. At all. That pisses you off even more.

          It just seems to be a default response on your part. I am not against the medical legalization of marijuana. Especially if it is done right. I, albeit…only in some context, am not against the legalization of marijuana; only, however, if it is done right.

          Rand Paul and Ron Paul are amongst the two very worst politicians that the US has had in decades. You have to go back to Jim Crow to, at least obviously, find a worse politician in the United States.

          Period. Point. Blank.

          • Arrow Durfee

            You think one has to be pissed off to recognize an idiot when the run into one? LOL. Good bye.

            @AD: “You think one has to be pissed off to recognize an idiot when the run into one?”

            No. And I never said that you need to be pissed off when you look into a mirror and come to the realization that the person staring back at you supports white supremacy…

            Nice FAIL. Adolf.

            “LOL. Good bye.”

            You did this by going on…& on & on…about about your love for white supremacy, in case you somehow managed to not notice and/or understand.

            Still, it is amusing… I’ll give you that.

            Not as big of a FAIL, this time. A different kind of a FAIL; but at least it isn’t as megalithic, in size, as your earlier attempts to prove yourself to be such a massive circus freak.

            Perhaps your issues and far more serious than I thought; so, it seems, that your mommy had the Zika Virus; pregnant, she shit you out. Perhaps she even told you that your meth addict father was Jewish…

            But, did she even tell you that your father is also your brother & that your mommy is also, & actually, the mother of your own father-brother, too?!

            I feel sorry for you. Feel the honor of my pity.

      • John C Carleton

        My you are sure an unhappy fellow. Fact, Ron Paul was the only congressman for years who introduced a bill to try to get something done for the people.
        Now thats a fact. And you are accusing me of being racist for saying that FACT.

        You are an ignorant ass. Or a zionist troll, don’t matter to me, you have my permission to run along. Have a nice day, maybe slap your father and mother for the genes they gave you.

        • Morpheus

          “My you are sure an unhappy fellow.”

          Unhappy about what?

          Do you think that I have reason to be unhappy for telling the truth??

          And WTF would I do that?!

          Nice FAIL. Moron.

          “Fact, Ron Paul was the only congressman for years who introduced a bill to try to get something done for the people.”

          That’s a lie. Other politicians have supported and introduced similar types of legislation. Ron, and Rand, have gotten more press than them due to the fact that so many of their ideas have been so anti-American and yet, and at the same time, so popular due to enough anti-American scum, such as you, believing in those ideas, especially where those ideas have the right spin & twist applied to them.

          Wow. Another FAIL.

          “Now thats a fact.”

          No. What I stated is a fact. It’s based on reality. What you stated is based on white supremacist banter, nativist ideological horseshit, xenophobic & `evil gubment` rhetoric.

          I.e., it is an “alternative fact”.

          Yep. Another FAIL. Moron.

          “And you are accusing me of being racist for saying that FACT.”

          This may actually have nothing to do with racism. Moron.

          Incredible. Another FAIL.

          “You are an ignorant ass.”

          I verbally smashed your teeth down your white supremacist throat for supporting a, bare minimum, ‘white supremacist shill’ and that pisses you off; WTF else would you whip out something that reaks of white supremacy, whether or not that includes a(ny), even a single…specific, racist idea or point of view?!

          Hmm?!

          “Or a zionist troll, ..”

          Yep. Look everyone. Another FAIL.

          “…maybe slap your father and mother…”

          You’re the one that supports white supremacy and my genes are messed up, eh?!

          …that’s funny, Cletus; keep’em comin’!

          • John C Carleton

            Because you hate the truth. You try to say day is night and night is day.
            I spoke fact and truth, and you, not being able to counter that with facts, because you can not, attacked me personally. Spells looser to me.

          • Morpheus

            @JC: “Because you hate the truth.”

            How can one hate the truth and yet speak the truth at the same time?! Did I somehow manage to do that by accident??

            This is just more of the same projectionist straw-man & argument bullshit. Quite literally, you don’t have an argument! You can’t defend Ron or Rand against my onslaught bc you know that I am right…and you, perhaps, don’t want to come off as a white supremacist, racist or not, with whatever criticism that you have for Isreal and/or Zionism; that may or may not be valid, in any context…that I would at least agree with, as that is an ideology that I sometimes disagree with.

            I am a Zionist. In that I support the existence of the nation of Israel. I am, however, not a Zionist fundamentalist. Isreal isn’t perfect. No nation is. Moron.

            “You try to say day is night and night is day.”

            That doesn’t make any sense. And not merely bc I have not done that; it is also bc you did that, moreso similar, when you said that I called you racist & that has, perhaps, nothing to do with my argument. It may have plenty to do with my argument if you are racist!

            (Seriously, put that one in the “Duh!” File; file that one under…”Duh!”)

            But, it doesn’t have to; bc, it doesn’t need to. There are dozen’s of ‘Paul-bearer’s’, who carry Ron Paul’s dead career in politics around on their shoulders, touting their man-love for that anti-American, pro-fascist, POS, who has expressed a desire to burn the Constitution…

            (I find this to be highly comical; not to give you any ammunition, but he has supposedly expressed support for the construction of a mosque at/near the 9.11-Ground Zero site, which is something that I do support. Now, if he has done that, then, you could use that to justify your man-love for him, at least in a context that I would perhaps not entirely disagree with. Something, however, tells that you are to stupid and to cowardly to understand and, therefore…let alone actually, do that!)

            “I spoke fact and truth, and you, not being able to counter that with facts, because you can not, attacked me personally. Spells looser to me.”

            More of the same: projectionist, straw-man argument logical fallacy – you, clearly, aren’t even smart enough to actually come up with a real argument.

            At all.

            So, you take your own stupidity & throw it at me as if you should win purely bc my advantage over you is so extreme that you deserve to win…purely bc you’re as dumb as you are?!

            Ouch. Hot fucking FAIL. Retard.

            I really don’t care why you support white supremacy. You admitted that you do it, that you believe in, at least that portion of, this traitor to the human species ideology. And, that tell’s me all that I think that I really need to know about the content of your character.

            You are human sewage.

            Period. Point. Blank.

            You’re welcome, Cletus!

          • John C Carleton

            No confused one. I spoke facts, you obviously do not like the truth of the facts, so you personally attacked me. Says looser to me.

  • John C Carleton

    Oh ignorant one. I spoke fact. Ron Paul is the only one for years who floated bills for the real benefit of Americans and America. Rand Paul seems to have inherited that spot now.
    Now oh ignorant one, i do not like either paul. Consider them the controlled opposition of the baby raping zionist ass holes of Washington DC.

    One term, you can not get the evil slowed down or stopped, you know if you go back for more terms, you will not either.
    When Ron Paul, now Rand Paul, introduce legislation which would benefit Americans, Ron Knew, and Rand knows, they will never pass. If the had a chance of passing , they would not introduce them, or they would not be allowed to introduce them.

    Ron Paul was part of the evil, he was the guy that the evil put in place so that Americans thought they had someone in congress. Rand Paul took that spot now.
    I don’t personally like either, i think they sold out Americans.
    of course, i think anyone serving the evil of Washington Dc in any capacity, is serving evil and is a n international war criminal.
