Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard Moves To END Federal Prohibition Of Marijuana!
According to a recent post here on THEI we reported that a General Social Survey found that almost 60% of Americans believe that Marijuana should be legalized. If you are one of those majority of our citizens I urge you to contact your Congressperson and demand that they support Congresswoman Gabbard and Congressman Garret on this important issue. Tell them you support HR1227.
It is the liquor and medical industry lobbyist who spend million of dollars to stop this movement that we are fighting. Even if you are against recreational marijuana you must see the ridiculousness of keeping it a Schedule 1 classification which still means they are saying that it “has no medical benefits” and makes it illegal to even study the plant to find further medical uses, which I an sure there are many.
We here at THEI support HR1227. We believe the followers of this site are smart enough to agree. . . . Your Editor Dennis Crenshaw

And West Virginia is on the tail end of the medical marijuana trend. Half the population of the country, spread out among some 28 states and the District of Columbia, can legally smoke some form marijuana for medical purposes. All but three states legalize some part of the drug found in the cannabis plant for medical cause (mostly the compound cannabidiol, which research suggests doesn’t get people high but can help with anxiety and pain). . . .
