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

Yes and No! Decriminalize but regulate marijuana use. Should be able to purchase at a store like going to the liquor store. Same penalties for use by and distribution to minors as for achohol. Probably less harmful than achohol use, and definitely... 4 years ago from a Republican in Grafton, WI

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

Yes to decriminalization of marijuana and simple possession. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Lebanon, WI
