Well, the first thing to look at is who the sponsors are.  Don't get me wrong I like Irwin, but he cannot get any committee hearing, at all. Calton is what is affectionately known as a RINO and again has very little chance of getting a hearing. We have all seen his plays and where they lead.  But hey, send him some more money.

sorry, not in this lifetime.

 

also, I have to point out DMT is inside every mammal on earth. released from the pineal gland on the brain stem.

 

 thought of as a scientific explanation for end-of-life and out-of-body experiences

Theres no age limit in the current law either

Thanks

 I  did talk to Rep. Irwin he came to the Birmingham Meeting one day to tell us all about this Bill and he had a Q&A afterwards  he told us this Bill had no chance in passing but his point was to open up a dialogue. 

 

IMHO the age limits with the current Law i agree to there is none but the one we are taking about is not the Law 1 of 2008
