NO, IT SHOULD NOT HAPPEN. MARIJUANA IS NOTHING MORE THAN A GATEWAY DRUG. I'M CONVINCED OF THAT. I DID READ WERE SPEAKER BOEHNER HAD JOINED THAT. WHEN HE STOOD HAPPEN HERE, MARIJUANA IS A SCHEDULE ONE DRUG. THEREFORE, NO RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE ABOUT THAT. I HAVE BEEN ALL OVER THE D.A. WE WILL BE OFFERING LEGISLATION -- I WILL OFFER AN AMENDMENT TO MAKE SCHEDULE ONE DRUG -- TO ALLOW FOR RESEARCH ON SCHEDULE ONE DRUGS. THOSE ARE DRUGS THAT DO NOT HAVE ANY MEDICINAL USE AT THIS TIME, BUT WE TO BE ABLE TO RESEARCH ON IT.

"Unemployment is not for people who are abusing drugs and using that money to buy drugs but instead to help them get back on their feet," says Rep. Carter. "And we want to make sure that is what they are doing with."
