You can read the remarkable Op-Ed here.

As I mentioned previously, the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment has passed its biggest hurdle, the house of representatives. In this Op-ed, Grover Norquist and Drug Policy Alliance executive director Ethan Nadelmann highlight one of the key points of agreement between the left and the right: we shouldn’t be spending money to prosecute the sick and those that care for them. The Rohrbacher-Farr amendment is key because it will help to both roll-back a piece of federal over-reach that is hated by the far right, and help to expand compassionate care and safe access to medical marijuana. If this alliance can prove fruitful in future drug policy struggles, this will be a powerful force for change.
