    Well, close enough for horseshoes and hand grenades. With the primary system in this country, the Presidential election season lasts 2 years.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    My point is that Obama's got the Democratic vote locked up... who are the existing medical marijuana smokers going to vote for (assuming they could vote, would vote and aren't too stoned or ditch for munchies and pop instead on Nov 2nd?) a Republican??! He's pandering to the Centrists, Moderates, Liberal Conservatives by floating out the discussion through the DEA mouthpiece. It's good politics....

    I think folks are missing a key part:

    "lacks accepted safety for use under medical supervision."
    This is the main issue, really. The chemicals in marijuana do have medical use, but medical marijuana is not sufficiently controlled to be good for medical use. There's no way to control the dosage or purity, which makes proper study, supervision, and monitoring difficult.

    Smoking a blunt has no acceptable medical use. The chemicals in marijuana can be helpful.

    There's a reason you take aspirin in a pill instead of chewing on willow bark. It's refined and controlled, you know the dosage and purity. Yes, this means big scary pharmaceutical companies get involved and it gets more expensive.

    ... which is essentially a direct consequence of the government's policy with regards to pot.

    Kind of hard to control it sufficiently to satisfy the DEA when it's the DEA busting people who are engaging in activity that is entirely legal under state law.

    So, do states that currently have legal for medicinal purposes laws on the books have to shut down, then?

    And let's not forget, with that regulation of dosage and purity, the government takes her bite... and would enjoy the big scary pharma companies involvement, which would ensure government getting it's piece of the pot pie.

    I totally read this wrong, and as a result found myself wanting a pot pot pie.

    And the US continues yet another out dated, draconian practice thats both ineffective and costly.

    What else is new?

    The potheads will be breaking out in a rash now.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
