H.R. 2306 – the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2011

Barney Frank and Ron Paul

Representatives Barney Frank and Ron Paul, among others, recently presented H.R. 2306, the ENDING FEDERAL MARIJUANA PROHIBITION ACT of 2011. This landmark legislation would remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act, limiting the federal government’s cannabis enforcement role to inter-state and national border management.

Currently, 16 States and Washington D.C. have passed legislation permitting medical marijuana access. This bill would not “legalize” cannabis. This bill would, however, place regulation of this substance into the hands of the States. Those states with currently active cannabis legislation would be able to enforce their laws as they see fit, without federal government interference.

THIS BILL IS NOT LIKELY TO PASS. YOU MUST WRITE YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS TO TELL THEM TO SUPPORT HR 2306. TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW! WRITE YOUR LOCAL NEWS STATION OR PAPER!
