reported in The Boston Globe:

Frank announced his plans late Friday on the HBO show “Real Time,” hosted by Bill Maher.

“I’m going to file a bill as soon as we go back to remove all federal penalties for the possession or use of small amounts of marijuana,” Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat, told Maher.

Frank didn’t define “small amounts.” Efforts to reach Frank on Saturday were not immediately successful.

Frank said he’d filed a similar bill in the Massachusetts Legislature in the 1970s, but hasn’t tried since he was elected to Congress.

“I finally got to the point where I think I can get away with it,” he said.

Frank said he thinks “its time for the politicians in this one to catch up to the public. The notion that you lock people up for smoking marijuana is pretty silly.”

The notion that you lock people up for smoking cannabis when the people have been very clear they don't condone it is beyond silly. There's a better word for it. It's called TREASON, and is punishable by death. Smart move on his part to take himself out of the line of fire on this issue.

Police officers acquitted for beating a 64 yr old man recently in New Orleans. In the words of their defense attorney "all he had to do was comply"....and they wouldn't have fractured his face.
