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

There isn't sufficient data to sway my opinion either way. I'm waiting to see what happens in Colorado. 4 years ago from a Republican in Bethpage, NY
Yes, drugs such as marijuana, but cocaine, heroine and other harder substances should still be banned. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Stillwater, ME
No, but we should reform drug sentencing laws and make drug counseling and education mandatory. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Panorama City, CA
Yes but qualifyers to responsible use would have to be federal laws, they would include manditory education and legal age of 25 for use. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Adelanto, CA
No, but punishments should be fair & helpful (i.e. blacks should not be punished more than whites; fines and community service should count as punishment). 4 years ago from a Republican in Evergreen Park, IL
In a manner of speaking, yes. I strongly believe that cannabis has many documented and as yet unexplored positive uses in many medical matters including lowering anxiety in the terminally ill, and pain management. I believe that it would be a wise thing,... 4 years ago from a Democrat in Houston, TX
Yes. Tax and regulate marijuana, medicalize highly addictive drugs, make rehab more available and affordable. Release those jailed for possession and use. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Carmel, CA
Yes, but we should offer programs of rehabilitation for drug users rather than jail time. 4 years ago from a Democrat in North Bergen, NJ
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, only marijuana should be decriminalized at this point. All other drugs pose serious health hazards and have no real benefits. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Amarillo, TX
