👎🏻👎🏻 S. 3032 - the STATES Act 👎🏻👎🏻
Marijuana, in my opinion is a “GateWay Drug”
I STRONGLY oppose the passage of the Senator Warrens bill S. 3032 — known as the STATES Act — would allow states, territories, the District of Columbia, and federally recognized tribes to regulate marijuana as they see fit. It would prohibit the sale or distribution of marijuana to individuals under the age of 21 or at transportation safety facilities (like rest areas or truck stops).
Additionally, it would clarify that compliant marijuana-related financial transactions don’t constitute trafficking, thus enabling marijuana businesses to access banking services.
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.
