Marijuana Legalization is USA’s Most Popular Issue

A federal bill that would legalize marijuana is currently the most-viewed piece of legislation on the official U.S. Congress website.

The bill, entitled Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2013 (H.R. 499), was introduced in February by Colorado Representative Jared Polis, and “directs the Attorney General to issue a final order that removes marijuana in any form from all schedules of controlled substances under the Controlled Substances Act.”

Despite a lack of support among Congress, which has yet to address the legislation with a vote, the bill is listed as the #1 most-viewed on, beating out other popular legislative issues such as the economy, guns and unemployment.
