    When it comes to the subject of marijuana, Barack Obama appears to talk out of both sides of his mouth. As a candidate, Obama intimated that he would respect state laws regarding medicinal marijuana and would not prosecute medicinal marijuana sales and use in states where it is legal. “It’s not a good use of our resources,” he said at the time. When Obama took office, the Justice Department released a memo that seemed to confirm that position. But in the years since Obama’s inauguration, his administration has shifted course. Now, Attorney General Eric Holder is vigorously prosecuting medicinal marijuana growers and sellers.

    That effort appears to be intensifying. On October 7, Obama directed his Justice Department to employ an aggressive array of enforcement actions against California’s medicinal marijuana producers and distributors, as well as the landlords who lease space to operators of marijuana dispensaries. All told, President Obama’s Justice Department has conducted well over 150 federal raids in at least seven states, and U.S. attorneys have threatened local and state officials in 10 states with criminal prosecution for failing to adopt proposed medicinal marijuana laws.

    Everyone likes drugs, so does the government. They do not care if people are on drugs they just care about who's drugs. If pot was legal all these incredibly expensive antidepressants would have no buyers. Law enforcement and the private prison lobby dictates our drug policy and our politicians just go along with it.

    I hope the million whom he shat on don't give him any money next year.

    Yea it's just like the Patriot Act. Him and Democrats claimed they hated it so much and were gonna get rid of it. But as soon as they got the power they only strengthened it. Duped again i guess.

    As I recall, Carter did the same thing. Paying lip service to marijuana law reform then doing an about face.
