Evidently Obama has changed his mind since his campaign. Listen to the last about 30 seconds.

Barack Obama and Medical Marijuana (interview Q&A) (2 min 32 sec)


Interesting they are going after dispensaries that contribute revenue to the state and feds.

Hmmm did I miss breaking news?

I think pot should be legalized and taxed, but California’s “medicinal marijuana dispensaries” are a total sham. I know a few people with prescriptions and I know a kid that works at a dispensary, and I’ll bet 95% of the customers have no medical need – they just want to get high.

Legalize it, tax it, be done with it...

This is hardball and I'm surprised Obama would do this to an important and large segment of his base.

Federal prosecutors are cracking down on some pot dispensaries in California, warning the stores that they must shut down in 45 days or face criminal charges and confiscation of their property even if they are operating legally under the state's 15-year-old medical marijuana law.

I was pretty shocked to pick up a magazine los gatos and see an ad for home delivery of weed. That is bad, it could kill people, eventually. I mean, as long as someone can order weed, and order pizza, what motivation will there be to leave the house?

I don't know... I'd say weed played a factor in the Obama presidency.

Agreed. You'd think at a time where from the lowest to highest levels of government, they are hurting for 'revenue', someone would 'get it'... obviously the politicians on all sides are brain dead yet again... though on this sort of issue, it's usually the 'right' leading the charge of the blind...

My guess is they have been saying pot is evil etc for so long they either believe what they are saying or the more likely scenario is they don't know how to change directions with out looking like fools.

You know, weíre getting to a time when it wonít be unusual to find high level politicians who didnít experiment with marijuana in their youth. I donít have a problem with that, except when they claim they didnít inhale; please.

Personally, I think Marijuana should be legalized and administered as alcohol is. I would rather my boy drive after a couple hits, rather than a couple drinks. Obviously neither would be preferable, Iím not naive.

In the beginning, it was about race. Currently itís about power.
