I would've bought what you're selling if you would've stopped with the first part.

If everything was taken out but the first section, I would support it but the other sections make me vote nay.

No. If someone has a nuke that's contraband and he's going to prison for life.

I'm not 100% sold one way on this bill one way or the other just yet. I like some parts, but I'm not sure...

I would vote to legalize cannabis countrywide just to be uniform. (safety regulation, tax collection, work laws)

Only cannibis? Only going forward? (No prisoners released from convictions while it was illegal?) Only in states that choose to legalize? States set any taxes, work related laws? (Can't be fired if legal?)

I'm ok with legalizing cannabis, but not with the 2nd part about imprisonment. Possession of some types of contraband might deserve imprisonment. I prefer to decide each on its own merits. Such a broad prohibition ties the hands of the fed too tight

• The use, possession, and/or sale of cannabis for any reason is no longer a federal crime. States reserve the right to legislate the legality of cannabis.
