On this vote the Yeas are 40%, the Nays are 60%. The bill is not passed.
Why stop at weed. Everything should be up to the states
Way to broad, can't agree the way it is written
I would've bought what you're selling if you would've stopped with the first part.
So Child Porn is now a ticket able offense? No thanks.
If everything was taken out but the first section, I would support it but the other sections make me vote nay.
I voted Nay.
This bill needs rewrittwn
I'm okay with the first part, but the rest is to vague.
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?)
Meh. It's an improvement at least.
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.
• The conviction of possession of any contraband, substance, or product held to be illegal or unlawful to possess by Federal Law shall no longer be punishable by imprisonment.
• The resulting punishment for a conviction of possession of contraband, substance, or product held to be illegal or unlawful to possess by Federal Law shall be a fine determined by a Federal Judge that escalates with multiple offenses and seizure of
said contraband by federal law enforcement.
