Here we go Again! You just KNOW this is never going to get voted on - Special Interests will be sure this dies in committee JUST like in the Last 3 years! And the DEA is STILL the only Agency issuing licenses to grow Hemp: and they issue NONE!

They CLAIM their DEA Enforcement Agents can't tell the difference between Hemp and Pot! A blind person CAN Tell: by the SMELL! Any DEA agent that cannot tell the difference NEEDS to be FIRED for being retarded and HEMP does not need an unavailable license of ANY KIND to be Grown Anywhere!

It's NOT about the POT, Love! It's Big Business keeping a billion Dollar SUPER CROP from destroying their Gross Profits and stranglehold Monopolies! US Industries IMPORT $300,000,000 of Hemp products a YEAR: WHY?

On the heels of Colorado and Washington legalizing marijuana, we are more energized than ever to advance marijuana law reform in Congress. 

Today, members of Congress will introduce a new bill that would finally end federal marijuana prohibition!

Since our victories in Colorado and Washington, the political landscape has shifted dramatically in our favor. But we need to pressure Congress to ensure that states can effectively legalize and regulate marijuana without being threatened by federal authorities.

Marijuana law reform is gaining momentum in Congress. What happens next is up to us. So I did something about it, and I hope you'll join me. Tell your legislators to reform federal marijuana laws.

Cosponsor H.R. 499, the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2013

Dear Congresswoman Davis,

In an unprecedented effort this week, Members of Congress have gotten serious about changing our nation's drug policies, and I'm writing to urge you to cosponsor their bill. H.R. 499, the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2013, would reform federal marijuana laws and allow states to set their own marijuana policy without federal interference.

A recent Gallup poll found that marijuana legalization is supported by a majority of independent voters, a majority of people in Western states, a majority of people in Eastern states, a majority of people in the Midwest, and almost a majority of Americans in Southern states. 18 states and the District of Columbia have already legalized marijuana for medical use. 15 states have decriminalized marijuana for personal use. And on Election Day, Colorado and Washington voted to legalize and regulate marijuana like alcohol.

It is clear that federal law needs to be changed so that states can do what is best for their citizens without fear of federal intervention. H.R. 499 repeals federal marijuana prohibition in a way similar to the repeal of alcohol Prohibition. The federal government's role would be to prohibit the transport of marijuana into a state that prohibits it. This gets the federal balance on the marijuana issue exactly right -- assist states that want to keep marijuana illegal, don't interfere in states that want to try a different approach.

Marijuana legalization will begin to bring the currently underground and unregulated marijuana market under the rule of law, helping to curb the crime, violence and out-of-control youth access that flourish under the current prohibition.  I urge you to respect the will of voters by cosponsoring these bills.
