420 with CNW – Marijuana Legalization Results in Fewer Illegal Grows in National Forests, Study Finds

Last week, the Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security sub-committee of the powerful House Judiciary Committee held a landmark session in which they listened to testimony from a variety of experts on how marijuana prohibition could be brought to an end federally.
