Some new bills being introduced in Congress, starting tomorrow. The DEA won’t be happy.
Polis’ measure would regulate marijuana the way the federal government handles alcohol: In states that legalize pot, growers would have to obtain a federal permit. Oversight of marijuana would be removed from the Drug Enforcement Administration and given to the newly renamed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana and Firearms…
Oh, I like that. Don’t see much reason for a federal permit (seems like guidelines for state permits would be sufficient), but I really like getting the DEA out of the business.
Of course, this is still just a bill being proposed by a couple of Representatives and doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of passing… yet, but knowing that it’s being discussed in Congress? That’s huge.
