Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Democracy Is In Great Danger April 23, 2015
Dana Rohrabacher, R-CA
"The second bill I would like to mention today is H.R. 1940. H.R. 1940 was submitted by me yesterday. Basically, I would like to call the attention of my colleagues and the American people to the importance of H.R. 1940. What it does is sets a policy concerning the Federal Government that if a State government has legalized the medical use of marijuana last year—now, we are going to include whatever marijuana laws are on the books of various States—that the State law should be what is respected and not the Federal Government coming in to States and local communities where people have decided that they don’t believe that the police and Federal action and court action should be used against people who use marijuana."
International Corporations Destroying The Patent Rights Of The American People April 22, 2015
Dana Rohrabacher, R-CA
"I would like to end my time tonight talking about one other issue very quickly. Today, I introduced legislation, H.R. 1940, which basically says that the Federal Government shall not interfere in those States that have eliminated the penalties on marijuana use and sales or have allowed the operation of medical marijuana dispensaries."
Small Business Tax Equity Act Of 2015 April 16, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Mr. Speaker, since California first passed a medical marijuana initiative in 1996, 23 states, the District of Columbia, and Guam have approved medical marijuana programs. An additional 13 states have passed laws allowing for the use of low-THC forms of marijuana to treat certain medical conditions. In addition, voters in Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska have voted to allow the retail sale and adult use of marijuana."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions April 16, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Mr. President, I am here today standing up for the people of Oregon and recognizing their decision to legalize and regulate marijuana for recreational use in the State."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions March 12, 2015
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"Law enforcement has made several notable busts of large productions of candied or flavored drugs. In January 2013, the Drug Enforcement Administration seized THC-laden soft drinks, cookies, brownies, and candy from two phony medical marijuana dispensaries in my home state of California. These dispensaries grossed an estimated $3.5 million annually. The names of the products seized show how the purveyors of these drugs marketed them under names that resembled popular soda and candy products: bottles were labeled “7 High,” “Dr. Feelgood,” and “Laughing Lemonade”; cookies and brownies had such names as “White Chip Hash Brownie” and “Reese’s Crumbled Hash Brownie; and candy was named “Jolly Stones THC Medicated Hard Candies” and “Stone Candy.”"
