Flash: Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) is leading a new bipartisan bill that will modify the Federal Controlled Substances Act of 1970, so that anyone acting in compliance with a state medical marijuana law will be immune from federal prosecution.

The time has come for America to rethink its marijuana laws.
Public support for reform has grown to an all-time high, and citizens are becoming more vocal and public in their support.
In fact, the voters of two states, Colorado and Washington, recently passed initiatives in last November’s election completely ending the failed policy of marijuana prohibition and making the use and possession of marijuana legal for all adults 21 years of age or older.
In time, voters in many other states will have the chance to make the adult use of marijuana legal.
With changes happening at a rapid pace, it is time for our federal government to listen to the people.
Marijuana prohibition not only has been a colossal failure, but it has also had some very costly consequences.
Each year billions of taxpayer dollars are wasted on the war against marijuana users when the money could be better spent fighting violent crimes.
Do we really need to be wasting valuable resources going after adults who choose to use a substance less harmful than alcohol or tobacco?
While we are spending billions of dollars fighting this ‘war,’ we are also missing out on potentially billions of dollars in tax revenue.
Colorado and Washington have set the wheels in motion, and society is ready for reasonable marijuana laws and regulations.
I’m asking that you listen to the people.
The lack of conversation has been negligent, and harsh prohibitionist laws have failed us.
It’s time for a change; please support HR 689, the medical marijuana law reform bill.
