Don Young helps launch the "House Cannabis Caucus" that is focused on keeping the federal government from interfering in state pro-marijuana laws.

Alaska's sole congressman, Don Young, on Thursday co-launched the House Cannabis Caucus with three other lawmakers, vowing to pursue changes to banking and other federal laws that stand between states and autonomy over the marijuana industry. 

Young joined with Reps. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., and Jared Polis, D-Colo., to say they formed the coalition to focus on advancing legislation to put managing marijuana squarely in the hands of states. 

Alaska, Oregon, Colorado and California are among the eight states and the District of Columbia that have legalized marijuana for adult recreational use. Forty-four states have legalized varying forms of medicinal marijuana. 

Young said he helped launch the caucus as a conservative Republican who believes deeply in states' rights. 

"Alaska voted to legalize it — pretty large margin — and I believe in states' rights and the federal government should stay out of it, period," he said Thursday.

Gee, just when you think you know a guy.

I have to admit that I would have pegged Don Young as the LAST guy to defend Alaska's pot legalization laws.

However that seems to be because I was not paying attention to his pro-marijuana bills from the past.

Damn it finally happened. I am actually in agreement with Don Young.

I may have to go lie down.

But don't worry, I still think he's a crook.

  2. I know a couple who work at a legal grow operation in Washington. They told me the company uses Credit Unions for banking because they don't have the same rules and regs as Banks, thus, less Federal interference.
