Ron Paul Cosponsors New Bill to Legalize Marijuana

To eliminate most Federal penalties for possession of marijuana for personal use.
Sponsor: Rep. Barney Frank [D-MA]
Cosponsor: Rep. Ronald Paul [R-TX]

Here's how to cite the bill--
if you want to let your congressperson know how YOU feel about it: H.R. 5843--110th Congress (2008): To eliminate most Federal penalties for possession of marijuana for personal use, and for other purposes, (database of federal legislation) <> (accessed Apr 25, 2008)

"This bill is in the first step in the legislative process. Introduced bills go first to committees that deliberate, investigate, and revise them before they go to general debate. The majority of bills never make it out of committee. Keep in mind that sometimes the text of one bill is incorporated into another bill, and in those cases the original bill, as it would appear here, would seem to be abandoned."
