AG Barr Signals Support for Tenth Amendment-Style Approach to Marijuana Legalization

"Marijuana Legislation Should Be Up to the States
In response to a question from Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Barr said that allowing the states to set their own marijuana policy and removing the federal government from the matter would be an improvement over the present situation, which he called an “intolerable” conflict between state and federal laws. Senator Murkowski is a sponsor of the Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States (STATES) Act, which would give immunity from federal action against business and people engaged in the manufacture, sale, purchase, or consumption of marijuana in states where it has been legalized. President Trump has signaled in the past that he would sign the bill if it was passed and sent to his desk."

"There is growing evidence that marijuana reduces the need for opioids to relieve pain and numerous studies have shown lower opioid-related overdose death rates in states where access to marijuana is legal."

Congratulations to Senator Murkowski and AG Barr for supporting this legislation. Should be easier to pass without Jeff "Good people don't smoke marijuana" Sessions around.
