Iowa Democratic lawmakers introduce bill to legalize marijuana

DES MOINES - Iowa Democratic lawmakers in the Legislature have introduced a bill to legalize marijuana.

DES MOINES – Iowa Democratic lawmakers in the Legislature have introduced a bill to legalize marijuana.

“Today we introduced a bill to legalize marijuana in Iowa,” democrats in the Iowa House said in a statement Tuesday. “(We have) heard from people of all parties who believe it’s time to legalize in order to keep Iowans safe, stop $$ from going to neighboring states, improve our quality of life, and stop unfairly punishing Iowans.”

While this bill is a major goal for Democrats, some Iowa Republicans say they will never support legalization of marijuana here.  As the Iowa Legislature – not to mention the Governor’s chair – is controlled by Republicans, this bill likely has little chance of succeeding.

Just another one of the issues that, if the populace of Iowa voted on it, would pass. But the Republicans don’t want what the people want, they want to legislate their own morality onto everyone else. Legalizing marijuana would provide revenue for the state, stop the outward flow of money from the state, and create for ordinary Iowans who suffer inordinate pain a way to alleviate some of that pain. But that doesn’t fit their immoral ‘Christian’ agenda

If you don’t like what we do here you can always move. We don’t want your kind here anyway.

I have as much right as you do to be here. And because this is America, I can say what I want and I can criticize our government, governor, and holier-than-you politicians and cult members. America doesn’t want your kind here, you intolerant and ignorant old fool.

If you know a bill has no chance to be adopted, why would you introduce it?
