WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives introduced legislation on Monday that would decriminalize marijuana at the federal level and eliminate legal hazards facing many cannabis-related businesses while regulating its use like alcohol.

Representative Nancy Mace of South Carolina, who is spear-heading the legislative effort, described the bill as a "compromise" with less onerous regulations than measures proposed earlier by other lawmakers including Democrats.

The legislation's path in the Democratic-controlled House was uncertain. Mace, a first-term lawmaker, said the measure has five Republican co-sponsors.

 
Gas prices skyrocketing, Food prices skyrocketing,. CRT, supply chain, inflation, China, mandates, Rittenhouse, Marxism on the March, Taiwan, Americans still stranded in Afghanistan

and you want to talk about dope?

You are literally tone deaf and retarded.

And by the way, your avatar hated you Marxists, just so you know.

Interesting and sounds good on the surface … however it’s hard to believe the GOP would sponsor anything that would ease the suffering of Americans.

That is astounding. Truly astounding.

Only a Leftist who is adrift on a cloud of utopian socialism and unicorns could think that it is the lack of marijuana that is causing Americans to suffer, and not the high gas & food prices, and racism, and mandates and lockdowns, and empty shelves all lawless streets brought on by your socialist policies.

Wow. I am without words.

Apparently the Republicans do. They are the ones who are introducing this pro-marijuana legislation, not me.

So do I. Perhaps you are the one who is tone deaf and retarded?

I'll come right out and say it - this is retarded legislation. Dope isn't going to ease suffering unless it is processed into a medicine used to treat things like pain and regulated like medicine.

I am hoping Rand Paul isn't pressured to support this legislation.

I agree with this legislation. The suffering comes in when people are arrested and jailed for using a substance that, by any standard of measure, is no worse than alcohol, and therefore should be just as legal.

Is cannabis legal in your state? If it is, you should totally try it out! --Just for research purposes, of course. Not that you should enjoy it, but just so that you can know from first-hand experience what you are talking about.

It's legal in my state but I haven't quite got up the nerve to try it yet or even go into one of the cannabis stores.

I've been curious. And I wouldn't mind if I enjoyed it. :)

I tried the edibles close to a month ago. It was as a last resort for pain. They work 10 times better than the poison pills my doctor prescribed.

Glad it did you good! People who are new to it need to be careful with edibles though, and start off at low doses, because they're a lot stronger than smoking it.

I asked my orthopedic doctor about trying it for pain, he said he couldn't make a recommendation, so currently I'm on a high-dose NSAID.

Pain management is one of the main things marijuana is used for when it comes to medical applications, but your ortho doesn't get a kickback from cannabis dispensaries, hence his recommendation for the high-dose NSAID (follow the money on that one). I'd recommend checking with another doctor who is open to it.

Was I too late with that comment? Lol...
Too late to take less? Yeah. Aftwards, I split them in fours so it was more gradual through out the day.

The positive side-effects: decreased pain, better sleep and a calming affect.

@annabenedetti I suggest that you visit a dispensary and look into buying a pre-roll, just to try it. I've heard some people say that they only need a couple of puffs from a joint to handle their pain, which isn't enough to get most people high. The staff at most dispensaries are also quite knowledgeable and can recommend the best strains to treat your condition.
