Anti-Medical Marijuana Warrior Turns into a Supporter PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 30 March 2007
stop arresting patientsWhat a surprise to learn that Bob Barr, a former Congressman with a reputation as an ardent anti- medical marijuana warrior, now lobbies for the Marijuana Policy Project. One of his claims to fame was the “Barr Amendment”, which blocked a medical marijuana initiative in the District of Columbia, even though 69% of voters agreed with it.
 
Strangely enough, Barr now says he will help lead the fight to give District residents a say on whether to allow medical marijuana.  He also says he will lobby for the rights of states to set their own medical marijuana policy without federal interference.

Bob Barr might turn into one of the best allies medical marijuana patients could have.
