  1. What's to prevent people from smoking weed and drinking at the same time and getting behind the wheel of a car. People on this site; you won't be swooning over this bill if someone in you family was injured or killed
    because of this.

  2. It is a bad idea to decriminalize it, they need to legalize it. To decriminalize you keep it in the hands of drug cartels and gangs while taking away the punishment for normal users. This only allows more profit motive for the gangs. If you legalize it that puts it into the hands of business owners who are required to regulate it for certain safety issues (such as potency, molds, they cannot lace the product with another drug, quantity bought, etc…) and gets it out of the hands of gang members and drug cartels. It is not enough to decriminalize we must legalize to get rid of the social problems created from the laws on this.

  3. “…marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest, therapeutically active substances known to man.”
    –Francis Young (DEA’s own Judge 1988)

    "Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use…”

    – Jimmy Carter (U.S.President)

    “Congress should definitely consider decriminalizing possession of marijuana… We should concentrate on prosecuting the rapists and burglars who are a menace to society.”

    – Dan Quayle (U.S. Representative & Vice President)

    "Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could."

    “The anti-marijuana campaign is a cancerous tissue of lies, undermining law enforcement, aggravating the drug problem, depriving the sick of needed help and suckering well intentioned conservatives and countless frightened parents.”

    – William F. Buckley Jr. (American conservative author & commentator)

    "The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world."

    – Dr. Carl Sagan (American Cosmologist, Astrobilologist, author & science communicator)

    “You bet I did -— and I enjoyed it.” ….when asked if he had ever smoked marijuana.

    – Michael Bloomberg (New York City Mayor)

    "Studies have consistently failed to establish the existence of a link between the harshness of a country’s drug laws and its levels of drug use."

    – Kofi Annan (U.N. Secretary General)

    "Pot is a better drug than alcohol. I'll prove it to you. You're at a ball game or a concert, and someone's really violent and aggressive and obnoxious, are they drunk or are they smoking pot?"

    “Why is pot against the law? It wouldn't be because anyone can grow it, and therefore you can't make a profit off it, would it?”

    “…It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit … unnatural?”

    -Bill Hicks (Satirist, Social Critic, Stand-Up Comedian)

    "If the words "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" don't include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp it was written on."

    – Terence McKenna (American ethnobotanist, psychonaut, author, advocate for responsible use of natural psychedelic plants)

  4. They can't make money if it's de criminalized. They have to have a means to make money off of a plant just like a tomato plant or any kind of gardening plant for free imagine if they were to tax you and say it was a legal to grow your own food tomato plant broccoli lettuce spinach etc etc they need their pockets lined especially your own medicine it's going to cut almost probably when all said and done trillions of dollars just look at Anheuser-Busch Marlboro cigarettes any of those top 10 car companies they want to run it's a it's a hundred billion dollar crop a year not including the uses and building materials from that plant that God gave us I've been preaching this for 30 years seems like these days they want to stick their hand in your pocket from It Like It's new these are bad people you can't patent to plant meanwhile half of the stage just have legalized it for everything you guys are in a no-win battle and guess what? There's already been new ideas for everything and anything for the past 10 years minimum that has benefited Human Society in the cheapest most cost-effective way. That's the problem they don't want you to know about it getting to that time that we all know about it and here's the other thinker like when you put your hand up your chin and yet rub your beard what have they done nothing the only thing they've done it's just secure themselves from the general population citizens and themselves people dying getting evicted from their homes of decades here and there. They've done nothing the only thing I've done it's collect paychecks and if they don't get their way this crop is going to be a billion dollar drop Plus like apple when it first started it's all around the planet and it's actually probably going to save the planet but in order to get that you have to talk with them I call b***** they're nothing but Shifty go-betweens they're swindlers they're corrupt of the corrupt there's a reason why it has to go through them and their other superiors and then their other superiors They can't make money If it's determinalized. They have to have a means to make money off of a plant just like a tomato plant or any kind of gardening plant for free Imagine if they were to tax you and say it was illegal to grow your own food tomato plants broccoli lettuce spinach etc and they need their pockets lined especially you're on medicine it's going to cut almost probably when all said and done trillions of dollars just look at and hesler bush Marlboro cigarettes any of those top 10 c*** companies they want her on it's a it's a hundred billion dollar crop a year not including the uses in building materials from that plant that God gave us I haven't preached in this for 30 years seems like these days they want to stick their hand in your pocket from it like it's new these are bad people you can't pat into plant meanwhile half of the stage just have legalized it for everything you guys are no wind battle and guess what? There's already been new ideas for everything in anything for the past 10 years minimal that has benefited human society in the cheapest most cost effective way. That's the problem They don't want you to know about it Well getting to that time that we all know about it and here's the other thinker like when you put your hand up your chin and yet rub your beard What have they done nothing The only thing they've done is to secure themselves from the general population citizens and themselves People dying getting evicted from their homes of decades here and there. They've done nothing The only thing I've done is collect paychecks and if they don't get their way this crop is going to be a billion dollar crops It's like Apple in the first started It's all around the planet and it's actually probably going to save the planet but in order to get that you have to talk with them I call b***** but nothing but shifty go between their swindlers their corrupt of the corrupt There's a reason why it has to go through them and their other superiors and then their other superiors It's a billion dollar… Well that microphone speech-to-text took longer than I would have ever imagined. Can't even catch up. Period. I almost forgot what I was saying cuz even this stupid smartphone can't even catch up your voice commands things that you're saying. they know they're on the losing end they're just panicking citizens rule the world not government are tyrannical s*** the only way government rule the world is if they got Deep Pockets and they got all the benefits in the world that most common man don't have as pretty easy to see and specially if you speak out about it are cast down from them. Formuland ideas on that thing and most likely there's going to be a lot of ups and downs between people problem is is if you want like the best care possible you might have to bite your tongue and say yes and it's really not going to hurt anyone but they will stigmatize it that it will. Sometimes you got to weigh the good with the bad and a lot of times the bad outweighs the good

  5. The timing of this, like the book Brave New World, give citizens Soma (legalizing cannabis) make them not able to think as well. Inject them with toxins through vaccinations, lower their IQ and increase likelihood of negative health effects.

  6. Help we need stimulus checks not vaccine. Republicans have turned this into nightmare covid-19 crashed economy. Blocking stimulus checks and marajauna bills sicking us even further dreadful discraful evil Republicanss

  7. Why doesn't Mitch McConnell do a Boehner and bring Legalizing cannabis before the Senate?? For the CBD to be beneficial it must have THC with it therefore if moscow mitch McConnell,must do his part to bring about the legalization of Cannabis at the Federal level,by presenting the legalization of Cannabis Bill to the Trumplican Senate for passage.

  8. POTUS Trump should veto this bill. Let the administration which comes after him, be it next January God forbid, or after the second term take it up. The house very likely put something in the bill which needs passing.

  9. Mitch needs to go, I cannot stand his thinking and reaction on just about every subject especially when he said "Americans do not need another holiday" after talks in the Senate about election day being a holiday. He said something like "that's all American need is another holiday," meaning, Americans have enough holidays. Such a grouch. WHY is he a person chosen to make important decisions, he is ruining SO many lives by wanting to pass a "skinny" bill that pretty much won't solve very much. I can't help it but people like him rub me the WRONG WAY.
