The War on Drugs has failed. It is costing our government millions to house drug offenders as well as  money to arrest and convict people on drug charges. Federal law enforcement are still going after those who are complient with state laws for medical cannabis. Tax it and regulate it! Please give Federal Pardons to those who have been convicted for growing and selling cannabis while following state law. Legalize the use of cannabis. History tells us that prohibition doesn't work, It just puts it underground and gives the criminal element a way to increase their profit. Legalizing will cut the criminals profit, reducing crime and gun use! A win win for all but the criminal! Let this be a first step on the new, logical War on the Drug Dealers! Pass and sign HR 2306!

      the "drug war" as it's called 7/8 of the budget with marijuana-related offenses. the other 1/8 comprises money spent on cocain, heroin, meth, and the rest of the other drug-related expenses. it terrifies me thinking it could be my own tax dollars that are being paid to the authorities who arrest me for medicating.

      No one in the history of the planet has ever overdosed on marijuana. Alcohol has killed more than a million humans, yet it is the drug of choice for our legislature, disgusting

      Cannabis will be regulated and taxed. Revenues go to government agencie instead of drug lords and other parasites. Class it with alcohol and use the same regulations, i.e. age, where used.

      Most individual states now condone medical cannibus and taxing and selling to IDed customers at state stores. Although not a consumer of drugs myself, I find it's status as a controlled substance utterly rediculous waste of money that could be better used for other programs like paying off the US' debt to other countries.

      im a good person and weed hasnt changed who i am, i just agree with a regulation of sale because of young people. currently it doesnt matter to the dealer about your age, only if you have the money. a new outlook: a majority age that is regulated to supply a person who is able to comprehend the outcome of a decision before he makes it.
