The most-viewed bill on the Congress.gov website would make marijuana legal. It's more popular than legislation on jobs, guns, and the economy.
Despite being so popular with Americans, the bill has never been voted on by Congress. That disconnect was highlighted by the group Marijuana Majority, who posted this picture on Twitter:
The "Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2013" is a simple, one-page bill that would do exactly what it says on the tin. It would end the federal law making pot illegal, and would simply make laws governing alcohol taxation and regulation apply to marijuana.
The bill is supported by 93% of Americans who contacted Congress via POPVOX. But after is was introduced by Rep. Jared Polis in February 2013, it was sent to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations, where it's still lamguishing.
