Rep. Barney Frank, known for his eccentric behavior – is at it again – but this time, he’s working on garnering votes, one puff at a time.

Frank wants to give Americans permission to smoke weed.

“The vast amount of human activity ought to be none of the government’s business,” Frank said. “I believe that smoking marijuana is an example of this.”

Frates, the Politico reporter who uncovered the cloud of smoke, summed it up well:

It’s a sentiment that no doubt would be cheered by famed stoner duo Cheech and Chong, whose reunion tour announcement on Wednesday came the same day as Frank’s statement. A cosmic coincidence? Ganjic karma? You decide.

Do fellow Democrats laud Frank’s efforts?

At the press conference, Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) called the bill “enlightened…”

If Frank gets his way, there will be a lot of “lighten” going on.
