Kudos To Obama

No sarcasm this time:

WASHINGTON -- Pot-smoking patients or their sanctioned suppliers should not be targeted for federal prosecution in states that allow medical marijuana, prosecutors were told Monday in a new policy memo issued by the Justice Department.

Credit where it's due: this is by far the most sensible administration we've seen on this issue.

This really gets the ball rolling towards legalization. Once you have a quasi-legal industry that's employing people, creating tax revenue, and not hurting anyone, it's hard to shut it all down again.

UPDATE: Cannabi-mentum! (Er... ganjamentum?)

Forty-four percent of Americans favors legalizing marijuana use, the highest level of support since Gallup first asked the question in 1970. From the late 1970s to the late 1990s, only about a quarter of the public supported legalization.

To be sure, Gallup's polling shows a slim majority, 54 percent, still oppose legalization. But in the mid 1990s, nearly three in four adults supported prohibition.

The Internet has broken the information dam. People are learning the truth.

This is all at the whim of the Obama administration and they reserve the right to go after even those obeying state laws.

Every single statement has an expiration date. Every one.

Legalize pot and tax junk food. Now that's a plan.

Phelps,

Yes. How true. How sad.

All he has to give is lies. How sad for him personally. He will never know love. Or even that for which he has traded love for: power.

Funny "Gallup's polling shows a slim majority, 54 percent" in an Election 54% is a "mandate"...
