Good Pot, Bad Pot Act


A bill that U.S. Rep. Mark Souder (R-Ind.) plans to introduce would tie penalties for marijuana cultivation to THC concentrations: The more potent the pot, the longer the sentence. Souder calls the bill, which also would restrict the ability of judges to depart from sentencing minimums, the "Drug Sentencing Reform Act." The Marijuana Policy Project, noting that higher THC concentrations mean less smoking and therefore less risk of pulmonary damage, has dubbed it the "Lung Disease Promotion Act."
