Sen's Warren & Gardner - Bipartisan Medical MJ Bill
Who's cravin' some politix?
We know, enough is enough. It won't matter which channel you frustratingly swap to, it's right there in your face. I can just hear the CNN inflicted sighs.
H O W E V E R,
What if we took it upon ourselves to deliver some very encouraging PoLiTiCaL banter in this particular segment? Enough intro. Here it goes.
Senator's Elizabeth Warren and Cory Gardner have an agenda that we are so on board with, it is way more than worth talking about. They have openly announced their support and proposal bill for those in MMJ-legal states who are just doing what they've been told they can do, with all the legal documents appropriate to do so.
Too often, though, federal officials assume the throne, and complicate things with conflicting laws and obstacles. Warren says, "Federal prohibition of marijuana creates all these fall-out pieces." and she even went on to exclaim, "It's dangerous and it's dumb."
Passing this bill is not a legalization matter, however, not doing so keeps state-legal business from accessing very important and beneficial resources. I.E: federally insured financial institutions for loans, making insurance coverage super difficult.
We broke this ordeal into pro's and con's for ya:
- It would establish intra-state federal guidelines.
- Soften existing conflict between state and federal cannabis laws.
-It would propose to free up fedrally insured banks to do business with state legal cannabis businesses.
(Well, while we don't agree there would be many down-sides to the event that this was pushed through, this should be disclaimed. We suppose.)
-This could potentially place regulations such as requirements for sales, safety standards, and restrict selling cannabis at rest stops etc. as part of a half-way negotiation for federal law to butt out on this subject.
More or less, Warren and Gardner are requesting a strengthening of the Tenth Amendment: Through Entrusting States Act. Sen. Warren says the proposal, so far, is generating more enthusiasm all across the spectrum of politics, giving it more of an upper hand in the Senate than usual.
In fact, Senator Cory Gardner succeeded in getting a statement of support from President Trump. On Morning Joe, he said that Trump agreed that there is no back button on the issue of legalization of marijuana.
But, get a whiff of this scandal -- Cory Gardner VS Attorney General Jeff Sessions
Gardner strongly rebuked Sessions' proposal for policy shift on marijuana enforcement. Attorney Gen. announced this earlier this year.
Gardner threatened to hold up Sessions' justice department appointments over the AG threatening coming after states that had legalized marijuana on their own accord.
See! There are people on up there fighting the good fight and it is ALWAYS worth noting.
We shall keep reporting the tid bits that concern our greater good, of course. It is our pleasure to brighten up your feed and spread a little hope.
Until next time,
