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

No, I think that drugs that are illegal should remain illegal, except that medicinal marijuana should be in a form that is not smoked. If one chemical in the drug is beneficial it should be extracted and taken as a supplement. Drugs and alcohol ruins... 5 years ago from a Green in Sterling, VA
