Three U.S. senators have unveiled a bill that, if passed, could end the federal ban on medical marijuana.

Republican Rand Paul and Democrats Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand are sponsoring the measure.

The Washington Post reports the bill would make it easier to transport some marijuana between states as well as broaden access to cannabis for research purchases.

Medical marijuana is legal in 23 states, including Minnesota and the District of Columbia.

The lower a man’s IQ, the more likely it is that he will get drunk.

Study authors could not find a reason for the association, but they say the person with the lower IQ may make unhealthy lifestyle choices that led them to heavy drinking.
