Reefer Madness … More Obama Change, This Time with Rules on Medical Marijuana

 

BARACK OBAMA REEFER MADNESS … LEGALIZED MEDICAL MARIJUANA

Stoners of America unite as here is a medical marijuana change you can believe in from REEFER1the Obama Administration.  Obama said in an interview in March that it was “entirely appropriate” for a state to legalize the medical use of marijuana “with the same controls as other drugs prescribed by doctors.” It would appear as if Obama is about to make yet another change when it comes to Rules on medical marijuana.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is sending strong signals that President Obama – who as a candidate said states should be allowed to make their own rules on medical marijuana – will end raids on pot dispensaries in California.

Asked at a Washington news conference Wednesday about Drug Enforcement Administration raids in California since Obama took office last month, Holder said the administration has changed its policy.

“What the president said during the campaign, you’ll be surprised to know, will be consistent with what we’ll be doing here in law enforcement,” he said. “What he said during the campaign is now American policy.”

So Barack Obama now agrees with States rights over the Federal government? Think the Obamamessiah will remain consistent on a State’s rights approach?

“The president believes that federal resources should not be used to circumvent state laws” and expects his appointees to follow that policy, Schapiro said.

Maybe Barack would not mind then if each state voted on whether they wanted his  Stimulus package or budget. Individuals can be for medical use of Marijuana all they want; however, this will be tough to enforce. Sadly, the government does tell us what to do and does invade the privacies of our home. Hell, taxation without representation and redistribution of your wealth are the most obvious examples … legalizing an illegal drug for medicinal purposes pales in comparison. Why do I have the feeling that marijuana prescriptions will be on the rise, even more so than Viagra?

      This is awesome. My grandmother has Crohn’s disease and will totally benefit from this. I can’t believe we are still wasting valuable jail space to incarcerate marijuana dealers/users at the expense of releasing child molesters to walk the streets and commit more crimes. Ridiculous!

      Well good for oderbomb I thin it should be legalized
      just because so many people do it. I think it would be a good way for the goverment to make $$$ instead of spend $$$ trying to stop it, But then thats just my stoner opinion

      Wait until the laws of unintended circimstances kick in.

      Why isn’t Obama for State’s rights on other issues? Only ones that are convenient for him?

      While my older brother was dying of cancer, he was in a great deal of pain and unable to eat much. At that time, my 80 year old mother became a convert to the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes. If even she, a die heart Republican conservative, could come around, I’m not surprised that the rest of the country will applaud this move by Holder and Obama.

      I don’t have a problem with medical use of marijuana.. couldn’t be any worse than oxycontin..etc..

    7. NY;r on February 28th, 2009 2:53 pm

      It think it’s crazy, the government just wants to make it legal so they can benefit from it…

      “Sadly, the government does tell us what to do and does invade the privacies of our home. Hell, taxation without representation and redistribution of your wealth are the most obvious examples … legalizing an illegal drug for medicinal purposes pales in comparison.”

      Yeah, pales in comparison to the point where it’s the complete opposite.

      Were you trying to suggest that somehow the government promising NOT to kick down your door over medical marijuana use is somehow an invasion of the privacy of what you do in your own home ?

      I really couldn’t tell, since you clearly are struggling to come up with an angle on how this isn’t something your should be behind. If this “government out of our homes” principle was something you actually believed in rather than just pretending to.

    11. HOPE on February 28th, 2009 6:30 pm

      Laugh out loud!

      Actually, this scares me a little bit. Simply, because we can look in the direction of Amsterdam and see what a mixed up mess that place can be. If legalizing marijuana means letting our guard down on other ‘over the top’ moral issues, I’d say that all those people that use marijuana should continue to use their current sources and not allow that prescription to be written.

      It feels too much like Pandora’s box to me…

      Thank God it’s not Florida!

      Can you imagine Cindy Anthony and Co.

      if she had a prescription for that?

      “Hey, guys, I need you to come over

      and check on my kids,

      I mean cats…

      I mean DOGS!”

      Chao for now…

      I live in California and I’m going to go out and get a prescription tomorrow!

    14. HOPE on February 28th, 2009 9:39 pm

      LOL!

      You know I love ya, Louise, but I can’t imagine
      you with a joint hanging out of your mouth. :)

      How soon can we get the stuff? I think we will need it to get through the upcoming 4 years…

      I have a sneaky feeling that this is how O’bama
      carried California, Oregon and Washington…

      Cheers, to all my friends!
      They already had lax laws.

    17. txchic on March 1st, 2009 2:20 pm

      does anyone know a doctor who would prescribe pot for a citizen suffering from depression because obama is tanking our country? i think i’m in dire need…

    18. Susan on March 1st, 2009 2:53 pm

      If marijuana was legalized in the US, and not just for medical purposes, IT WOULD HELP CRACK DOWN on ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS crossing our borders to sell the chit!! Might even help put the illegals outta bizness ;-)

      This is one of my favorite ’70s songs…LMAO!

      One Toke Over the Line:

      One toke over the line sweet Jesus
      One toke over the line
      Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
      One toke over the line

      Awaitin’ for the train that goes home, sweet Mary
      Hopin’ that the train is on time
      Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
      One toke over the line

      Whoooo do you love, I hope it’s me
      I’ve bin a changin’, as you can plainly see
      I felt the joy and I learned about the pain that my momma said
      If I should choose to make a part of me, surely strike me dead
      Now I’m one toke over the line sweet Jesus
      One toke over the line
      Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
      One toke over the line
      I’m waitin’ for the train that goes home sweet Mary
      Hopin’ that the train is on time
      Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
      One toke over the line

      I sail away a country mile,
      Now I’m returnin’ showin’ off a smile
      I met all the girls and loved myself a few
      Ended by surprise like everything else I’ve been through
      It opened up my eyes and now I’m
      One toke over the line sweet Jesus
      One toke over the line
      Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
      Don’t you just know I waitin’ for the train that goes home sweet Mary
      Hopin’ that the train is on time
      Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
      One toke over the line

      Don’t you just know I waitin’ for the train that goes home sweet Mary
      Hopin’ that the train is on time
      Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
      One toke over the line

      I want to be
      One toke over the line sweet Jesus
      One toke over the line
      Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
      One toke over the line
      Don’t you just know I waitin’ for the train that goes home sweet Mary
      Hopin’ that the train is on time
      Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
      One toke over the line
      Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
      One toke over line
      One toke, one toke over the line

      Hope (#14),

      You wrote: “It feels too much like Pandora’s box to me…” so I realize you do not know what is going on and the history. I will say this and attempt to not offend, but to persuade you, to the facts about the federal drug war. I write this as a non-smoker, non-drinker, non-drug-user (except caffeine) and follower of Christ.

      First, the federal drug law is unconstitutional. We needed an amendment to make alcohol prohibited at the federal level. Other drugs should require this, also. The tenth amendment grants the states to decide on this issue. California has had to fight the federal government on this issue, when it clearly has the law of the land on its side. Moral question #1: When is it okay to ignore the law of the land?

      Second. People really die because of the federal drug laws. Author Peter McWilliams died choking on his own vomit because he was denied medical marijuana. Moral question #2: How was denying him access to marijuana morally justified?

      Third. Marijuana and other drugs were legal in the past. Lack of morality does not increase because of lack of legality. If that were so, the United States would be very immoral compared to countries like Saudi Arabia or Iran which have a strong sense for legislating morality.

      i don’t care for any of obama’s ideas, however, you can buy the biggest killer of people in any store and that’s cigarettes. alcohol #2.
      there are way too many kids lives ruined by being caught with ten dollars worth of pot but our politicians can smoke cigarettes and drink till their hearts content. i really don’t know if legalization is the way, but they should decriminalize it to some extent. a lot of states have gone to a 100.00 fine for possession and that’s it.

    22. HOPE on March 2nd, 2009 2:30 pm

      Thanks, Paul. I understand, but, still wobble on this issue. My fear is that medical marijuana may get into the wrong hands. There are side-effects, as with any medicinal herb or drug. ;)

      I smoke, I smoke weed and hash

      but I live in Amsterdam
