REEFER MADNESS GRIPS CAPITOL HILL

Today (Friday) Rep. Rohrabacher gave a speech on medical marijuana in the U.S. House. Meanwhile, Rep. Mica held a hearing on marijuana policy in which he brandished a reefer: “I have this joint here,” he said. After an awkward pause, he continued. “This is not a real one. It’s a mock one.” Laughter in the room, as if to say, We’re glad you cleared that up. Apparently, some Republicans see an opening on this issue. And it truly is a scandal that the federal government doesn’t recognize a legitimate medical use for the drug. It’s also a scandal that penalties for marijuana possession can be so harsh and that there is such blatant racial disparity in enforcement. On the other hand, this is a potent drug, and I very much question whether legalization is right.
