Federal Bill Would Prevent College Kids With Drug Convictions From Losing Financial Aid

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

Ever since it was determined years ago that youthful mistakes should disqualify a person from having a fair shot at a solid future, getting Uncle Sam to cough up financial aid for college has been somewhere between extremely difficult to virtually impossible for those students marred by a drug conviction. However, a group of bipartisan lawmakers emerged this week with a piece of legislation intended to repeal the law that has crippled so many students from furthering their education because a drug offense disqualified them from financial aid.

Candelaria knows legalization may be a long shot – he introduced a similar bill last year that was never raised in committee – but he thinks it's important lawmakers hear from the public. A Quinnipiac Poll last March showed 63 percent of voters supported allowing adults to legally possess small amounts of marijuana for personal use.
