The federal prohibition on marijuana has come under scrutiny over the past few years since the adoption of legalized marijuana across the country starting in the great state of Colorado.

While many Republicans are still hesitant to support the legalization of a drug that is deemed as toxic and dangerous as heroin, there are a few liberty-minded GOP members that fill it is time to stop the craziness that has plagued our war on drugs with the enforcement of marijuana laws across the country and the restriction of freedom.

Congressman Justin Amash has signed on to a new bill introduced in the House that would end the federal prohibition on marijuana in the United States.

“(a) Prohibition On Certain Shipping Or Transportation.—This Act shall not apply to marihuana, except that it shall be unlawful only to ship or transport, in any manner or by any means whatsoever, marihuana, from one State, territory, or district of the United States, or place noncontiguous to but subject to the jurisdiction thereof, into any other State, territory, or district of the United States, or place noncontiguous to but subject to the jurisdiction thereof, or from any foreign country into any State, territory, or district of the United States, or place noncontiguous to but subject to the jurisdiction thereof, when such marihuana is intended, by any person interested therein, to be received, possessed, sold, or in any manner used, either in the original package or otherwise, in violation of any law of such State, territory, or district of the United States, or place noncontiguous to but subject to the jurisdiction thereof.

Freedom is at stake in this country and it starts with pointless wars on our freedoms that have not produced any real results but instead incarcerated an entire generation of people for smoking a natural plant.
