Ron Paul & Barney Frank's Bill Curtailing Federal MJ Prohibition

New proposed legislation, reportedly authored by Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., and Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, would curtail the federal government's role in marijuana enforcement, limiting it to cross-border or interstate smuggling, though continuing to allow states to maintain prohibition under an ancient regime preference for the 10th amendment as opposed to the 9th Amendment.

This proposed law, H.R. 2306 initial co-sponsors include Reps. John Conyers, D-Mich.; Steve Cohen, D-Tenn.; Jared Polis, D-Colo.; and Barbara Lee, D-Oakland.

I just want a quick statement on why you are encouraging your supporters to support Lamar Smith, 22 year incumbent, 2 time bailout voter, voted for the war in Iraq; we are curious down here in Austin.

I have made an agreement that I will support the incumbents of Texas- Republican incumbents of Texas.
I am in the Republican Party.
I am the most independent Republican within Congress.
But there’s a limit to how much independence one can get away with within Washington, D.C.

Make of it what you will on the dynamics here, leading up to this, and that to follow.

New chairman of Trieste council Iztok Furlanic openly exhibited to have smoked "light substances" (Marijuana etc.).

He was immeditately aftr the appointment blamed for that, together for other reasons

".......Q: They have recalled that you don't want in public places the crucifix, that you dressed up like a cowboy in the council now presided by you, that you played the piano to vote in turn of Racovelli, to have let to be shot with a Tito's partisan hat of IX corpus, exalting on Facebook the slogan "Trst je nas!", and also admitted to have smoked light substances, which don't hurt so much..... Did you expect such a burst?......."

Probably a living Titanic in order to make it sink against the icebergs of that "little politic", and to kill, among 1,000 wrong things he is supporting, those three "Guggenheim, Strauss, Astor" (exhumation of the allegedly buried in Fojba di Basovizza, resistance against the Romish-Masonic transverse Mafia, and resistance against PHARMACRATIC INQUISITION)...

(Im quoting you: ".....You ask why politics are so screwed up while continually voting for the lesser of two evils; yet you fail to fathom the quite obvious dynamics of etc. etc......"

FOREIGNERS will be banned from Holland's infamous cannabis-selling coffee shops under new anti-drug laws.

Under the new rules only Dutch residents will be allowed to enter the shops, which lawfully sell small amounts of cannabis to customers, the Daily Mail reported.

By the end of the year customers will have to sign up for a one-year membership, or "dope pass", to the shops.
