- Former US Rep. Barney Frank weighed in on cannabis legislation at a listening session in Massachusetts.
- The openly gay former congressmen compared the legislation to that of the battle to legalize same-sex marriage.
The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission listening session commenced on Wednesday, visited by former US Rep. Barney Frank. During his attendance, Frank spoke on how far the cannabis legalization movement has come, as well has his own roll in the reformation of this industry. As the testimony began, Frank brought attention to the legislation that he had originally introduced in 1972 as a state representative, titled “An Act to De-Control Marihuana.”
Lol: former Congressman Barney Frank just showed up to the @MA_Cannabis listening session on draft regulations to reflect generally on the progress of marijuana reform — and dropped off a copy of the decriminalization bill he filed in the Mass. Legislature in 1972. Much
