The pols are starting to realize that marijuana users are a major voting bloc and the government keeps us at each others throats over legalization initiatives.
Now that Gary Johnson has the Libertarian Party candidacy if he gets enough support the Republicunts and Democan'ts will not be able to ignore marijuana legaliation anymore. He needs 16% to be included an the televised debates and we,the tokers are over that amount,,so even if you don't want too vote for Gary Johnson and Judge Gray,,mark any polls for them just to get them in the debates and force the candidates to answer questions they don't want asked.

There is a silver lining here. It failed 262-163. This means nearly 40% of the House is for defending medical marijuana. I bet 5 yrs ago only 10% of the house would have defended something like this. Though the majority were democrats the vote was more bipartisan than many bills that go through the house.
Congress is pathetic
So the vote in the House was 163 in favor and 262 opposed for the Rohrabacher and Hinchey amendment that would have prevented the DOJ from expending any funds for the purpose of interfering with state medical marijuana operations.
A similar bill in 2006 lost 163 to 259.
In 2005, it was 162 to 264.
In 2003, it was 152 to 273.
Actually,,It has remained stable,,,Which translates into the same corporations,paying the same legislators for keeping America drug free and hard on crime.
