Ron Paul and Barney Frank being bipartisan
With all the talk about gridlock in Washington, D.C., it's easy to overlook those occasions when a Democrat and a Republican work together. Barney Frank, Democrat of Massachusetts, and Ron Paul, Republican of Texas, have been working together for years to decriminalize marijuana.
With the citizens in the states of Colorado and Washington voting to legalize marijuana in the November election of 2012, Mr. Frank and Mr. Paul again joined to write to The President of the United States, Barack Obama.
In the future when marijuana is legal, regulated, and taxed as it surely will be, people will look back at such documents in amazement that there was ever any controversy.
Congratulations, Ron Paul and Barney Frank for common sense bipartisanship.
