marijuana joint by Chmee2 -CC licenseCongressmen Barney Frank (D-MA) and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-TX) will introduce a bill in the US Congress today that would allow each state to decide for itself whether to legalize marijuana -- good news for patients suffering from pain and disease who look to medical marijuana for help.

The historic bill would limit the U.S. government role in marijuana enforcement to cross-border or inter-state smuggling. Citizens would be able to legally grow, use or sell cannabis in states which have legalized the forbidden weed.

My daily habit a year ago was to read the news with my morning coffee. I felt the entire world was falling apart and getting worse day by day. Then I read some research on the effects of bad news, and made a conscious choice to read uplifting stories... Now I’m excited about all the wonderful things around the world, instead of feeling helpless. When I read the stories on GNN I feel empowered, included, and encouraged to get involved. - Kerrie S., OK
