This is something new and possibly historic if it is to be believed.
It's about time.
A Republican lawmaker is quoted by Fox News indicating imminent federal movement on the weed subject shortly after the midterm elections, possibly as soon as this spring. No other outlets seem to have picked up this nugget as of yet, but cannabis is big news nowadays, and this is sure to shake things up a bit.
The idea that even one more person should be arrested or criminally charged for the mere possession of marijuana is a moral abomination and an affront to reason.
Here's hoping the people in charge finally do the right thing.

They may get money in the beginning from sales, but then people will just start growing their own. [...] The revenue will go down. So, in the end the Government loses, because not only will they grow their own, they will smoke it.
Not everybody has the room or inclination to grow their own. Hell, I could grow tomatoes, too, and I've done that in the past. But I don't have a green thumb, so they didn't turn out all that good. And by the time I added up what it cost me in time and fertilizer and effort, it turned out to be cheaper to buy excellent tomatoes at the store. So I don't think the government is going to be any more worried about that than they are about people who make their own wine or beer putting the liquor manufacturers out of business and losing taxes on that.

I like your reply. Growing cannabis is easy! It is a 'weed' after all! lol I think most folks are under the impression that you need some kind of clandestine 'drug lab' and a high tech 'hydroponic grow room' to grow cannabis! NOT TRUE!
Good seed stock and a basic knowledge of growing plants is all you need!
