Interesting tidbit here if the bill to federally decriminalize weed were passed as is: the Bureau of Alchohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives would be rebranded as the Bureau of Alchohol, Tobacco, Cannabis, Firearms and Explosives.
Schumer-Wyden-Booker get their press conference underway soon on the bill aiming to end federal prohibition of marijuana. Report up soon for @CourthouseNews.

Biden: Being human is being imperfect, driven by appetite and ambition as much as goodness and grace. But some things should be simple and straightforward, the most important and most fundamental of those things is the right to vote and the right to vote freely.
