    Legalizing pot would be a huge step toward ending the war on drugs entirely, which has played a huge role in impoverishing communities in America, inciting civil war in Mexico, and contributing to the grotesque nature of our criminal justice system. Most of our major problems have complicated solutions, but this one is pretty simple: legalize it. Offhand I can't think of any other single action that would do more for the long-term wellbeing of our country.

    So it's a youthful indiscretion when Obama smoked pot...but if anyone ELSE has a "youthful indiscretion" of their own, they deserve to be arrested. And God forbid if someone actually has a legitimate medical REASON for using marijuana (which is more than can be said for Obama himself)...

    What an asshat. Obama has been a huge ****ing disappointment on this issue, and Eric Holder is one of the worst attorneys general ever. I thought we couldn't get much worse than John Ashcroft and Alberto Gonzales, but I was wrong.

    Nope. There is a lot of evidence that cannabis causes apoptosis in cancer cells, and inhibits it in normal cells.

    How very disappointing. I don't know why I keep forgetting that he is a politician.

    So the 'dispensaries' go back underground and call themselves 'dealers' again.

    Nothing changes.

    When Big Pharma has figured out a way to have complete control over the pot market then, and only then, will it be legalized. In fact, I seem to remember that they have federal permission to use THC in some pills already. In this case the cartels are nothing but a smokescreen for what's really going on, IMO.

    counts well over 100 raids in the two years and four months since Obama's inauguration

    Almost like he wanted them to start up.......to come out of the shadows so to say.......so he could come in and seize all their ****.

    Conservatives, (self described, of course) on the other hand, are totally on board with legalizing pot.

    Actually dealing with dispensaries is far less shady, and pricey than dealing with dealers.
