In 1970, Congress passed the Controlled Substances Act which banned the manufacture, importation, possession, use and distribution of certain drugs. The act ranked drugs by their potential for abuse and placed them into five categories. Two of the most widely used drugs in the U.S., wine and alcohol, are exempt from the classifications. Ballot measures in several states including Colorado, Washington and Oregon have decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana. These laws apply only within the respective states and have no effect on Federal law. See recent drug policy news

Cannabis is a proven medical aid. Were it not illegal, my boyfriend might have avoided several invasive surgeries made necessary for his brain tumor, and his home town would not be building a new (completely unnecessary) jail. Consumption of Cannabis is... 4 years ago from a Green in Coyote, CA

No, just marijuana. Drug abuse should be treated like a health issue. Treating it like a criminal issue is not effective in reducing drug use or availability, especially to minors. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Windsor, WI
No, but we should reduce sentences for those serving time for drug use. Those who have addiction problems, should be required to have drug therapy instead of longer sentences. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Valley Village, CA
No, but we should reduce sentences so that usage and possession aren't given longer punishments than rape. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Waite Park, MN

No, but we should decriminalize marijuana, and standardize penalties for drug crime. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Annandale, VA
