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

It might be bass-ackwards, but we could legalize everything and give the death sentence to anyone who commits a serious crime (regardless of drugs involved). Or, we could make everything that alters the mind (including Alcohol) illegal. Then when crimes... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Stanchfield, MN
No. Yet if a drug previously deemed illicit is found to have medicinal benefits it should be decriminalized so it may be prescribed by a licensed physician in accordance with current regulations. 5 years ago from a Republican in Silverdale, WA
