I'm thrilled with Barney Frank's social Libertarian leanings. Maybe Ron Paul can persuade him to the light side of the force. There is still good in him, I feel it.

For Immediate Release: April 18th, 2008

Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act Introduced Yesterday in Congress

HR 5842 would reschedule marijuana for medical use, end federal interference in state laws

Washington, D.C
. Congressional Representative Barney Frank (D-MA) introduced the "Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act," HR 5842, yesterday, a bill co-sponsored by Representatives Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), Sam Farr (D-CA), Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), and Ron Paul (R-TX). The act would change federal policy on medical marijuana in a number of ways. Specifically, HR 5842 would reclassify marijuana from a Schedule I drug, which cannot be prescribed, to a Schedule II drug, which would recognize the medical value of marijuana and create a regulatory framework for the FDA to begin a drug approval process for marijuana. The act would also prevent interference by the federal government in any local or state run medical marijuana program.

Its about damn time! People should have a right to medicine. It is the right to life. The most fundamental of all rights.

It only took a few weeks but I've already scooped the New York Times in my coverage of the lead tainted cannabis in Germany. The NYT article is worth reading, even though it is old news by now. :) Yeah, me!
