A divided U.S. House committee approved a proposal Wednesday to decriminalize and tax marijuana at the federal level, a vote that was alternately described as a momentous change in national cannabis policy and a hollow political gesture.
The House Judiciary Committee approved the proposal 24-10 after more than two hours of debate. It would reverse a long-standing federal prohibition by removing marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act, while allowing states to set their own rules on pot.
The vote ``marks a turning point for federal cannabis policy and is truly a sign that prohibition's days are numbered,'' Aaron Smith, executive director of the National Cannabis Industry Association, said in a statement....

If you can't beat them - Then join the criminal fraternity.

Relativism = "any theory holding that criteria of judgment are relative, varying with individuals and their environments." (Dic)
Liberalism = Relativism and individualism. Absolute authority such as the Bible is slowly diminished in society and not taught to children. The modern generations "freedom?" to write your own bible, religion and moral standards.
Invent your own words such as 'homophobia' - Then construct laws to penalize those who will not conform to society's Big Brother.

Good. History has shown that legalizing drugs doesnâ€™t solve the problem. (Cocaine was legal at one pointâ€”the reason it was banned wasnâ€™t because it was â€śbad for your healthâ€ť or â€śaddictive.â€ť It was banned because of a rise in halo crimes... burglary, robbery, assault, etc... from the poor people who wanted the drug and couldnâ€™t afford it. When they criminalized cocaine, many of those index crimes saw a dramatic decline.
