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, but make rehabilitation mandatory as part of drug-related sentencing. 5 years ago from a Green in University Place, WA
NO, obviously not. But Recreational use of drugs similar to alcohol and caffeine and marijuana (in scope and effect) should be regulated, taxed, and allowed for adults who happen to be good citizens. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Seattle, WA

No, not all drugs but I am in favor of decriminalizing marijuana and in increasing aid for those who want help with addiction. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Kennewick, WA
