senate Bill S. 1028

Should Marijuana be Regulated by States & Not Available to Individuals Under Age 21?

Argument in favor

This commonsense, bipartisan bill ensures that each state is able to use its rights under the Tenth Amendment to regulate marijuana while preventing marijuana from being sold to people under 21 years of age or at transportation safety facilities like rest areas or truck stops.

This is a common sense approach to bringing some background structure to support existing state marijuana laws regarding interstate commerce, legitimate banking, financing the business aspects of this new taxable revenue source as well as removing some of the seemingly ‘prohibition-like’ federal classifications and restrictions- without overstepping Republican sponsored states rights. Nice job, Elizabeth Warren! .. .. Also a great political move; if Moscow Mitch buries this legislation- it will be squarely on him and his legion of lemmings.

Yea except one thing. Medical marijuana should be available to children with a valid prescription. There are many medical uses and it would be a shame to remove that option. (If there already was a provision for medical use i didnt see it)

Yes. Decriminalize it at the federal level. Legalize it at the state level for recreational use over 21, any age for medical use. Allow a small quantity for growing your own. Criminalize impairment not presence. Impairment testing technology is on the way. Empty out the jails and prisons and expunge records of those convicted of pot laws.

Argument opposed

The federal government shouldn't allow states to normalize the use of marijuana, which is a dangerous gateway drug. It needs to enforce laws designed to protect the public health. Alternatively, marijuana should be available to adults age 18 and up.

Just legalize it entirely! Also, it should be available to adults 18 and up! If you’re old enough to join the military then you’re old enough to buy cannabis.

Plants should not be regulated by anyone, and any adult who wants to buy, sell, or use them in any way should be free to do so.

    Marijuana needs to be declassified as a scheduled 1 narcotic federally which still allows the federal government to stick their noses into states ability to self-regulate this useful medicinal product.

    This bill dissolves the discord between state’s laws and federal laws on marijuana and enforces states rights to autonomy on this issue. Additionally, it adds common sense regulations and access to banking services which will only further strengthens safety issues, and enforcement of those issues, regarding legalization of marijuana in states that want this. I urge you to vote yes.

    I do agree teenagers who have a prescription should be allowed and maybe younger if the doctor can show it would prevent a opioid addiction

    YES. YES. YES. NOT available to those under 21 because of the medicinal properties. There hasn’t been enough research to tell what they might cause in the developing brain because of the Republicans scaring everyone about a medical plant. Probably because BIG PHARMA paying them to make it illegal. Definitely we need a FEDERAL LAW TO DECRIMINALIZE it, BUT States should control it unless they put people in jail for possessing it & using it. That must be part of the decriminalization.

    Whatever it takes to legalize and decriminalize. Marijuana is NOT a gateway drug. Conservatism oppression is a gateway drug. Conservative oppression is the root cause of any person seeking a solution to their misery, depression and stress.

    Recreational cannabis should be for 21 and over, but medical cannabis is just that- medicine, and must be available to all.

    All this progress with marijuana is worthless if we aren’t also releasing all the non-violent people in prison for weed crimes. We can regulate and tax marijuana all day long, but unless we also include everyone’s participation, it is just another tool of white supremacy. Do what’s right on this.

    Many will pass this by because I voted Nay. But think this through. States are Sovereign to at least some extent. I really don’t know how that works honestly. Making a FEDERAL LAW that allows STATES to make their own laws. Hmm 🤔 I think 1st of all, how dare they Federalize Marijuana anyway. That plant was placed here. We didn’t make it. They LEAVE LEAD IN FLINT’S WATER for how long now!? And it’s made it’s way to N.J. And EVERY WHERE IN BETWEEN. That’s what the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS FOR. FIX FLINT AND N.J. I’m CONCERNED that if we give States, “States Rights” we will have a big mess. Texas will turn Blue Soon. But think about the Nut Job States That will Lock THC down tighter than Dick’s Hat band! Again, I don’t know the Legalities of All of this, but I’d rather err on the side of waiting a bit longer. It’s not as if anyone is doing without (for very long) so I say wait. God forbid you drive cross Country with less than a 1/2 oz. you might be ok until you cross into the next State.....We have to TAKE IT ALL! And WE ARE BIG ENOUGH! VOTE EM OUT! Send $1. Or $5. To help defeat @JohnCornyn and @TedCruz is serving his LAST TERM! Wait until all candidates are declared. So far, MJ Hagar. But there is other interest. IMAGINE. A SOLID BLUE TEXAS. We have Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, El Paso, ALL OF S TX! Kick those Basta’ds OUT! We’re Capitalist like it or not. If you can’t vote, throw a $1. At it! I’m throwing Money at Amy McGrath KY! It’s a shame that Old White Men would work AGAINST ANYTHING, especially something that shows so much promise. They have to go.

    Marijuana is a racist word used to demonize a plant. No one ever had the right to outlaw cannabis. That’s why we can’t trust the government. Law makers think they’re progressive when the consider legalization. Pat your selves on the back if you also think slavery was wrong. You leaches just don’t get it.
