MT Legislator: Marijuana Should Be A State Issue–Feds Should Stand Down
Diane Sands advocates the feds staying out of the states’ medical marijuana affairs
Montana legislator Diane Sands is floating a radical idea–that the feds should leave the states alone when it comes to medical marijuana. Specifically, she said marijuana should be delisted at the federal level. Serving as a progressive lesbian Democrat in a state house where Republicans have a 68-32 advantage, she says has taught her a few things. One of those things is that even though “Republicans can do whatever they want” in the Montana House, there are still a lot of things they, and state legislators in general, cannot do.
