    Doctors are already doing this with all kinds of drugs. It's just that cannabis has a stigma surrounding it that it's getting cracked down on.

    Why don't we also crack down on the drug dealing doctors and their pharmaceutical industry kickbacks while we're at it?

    Total hypocrisy, and cannabis never killed anyone.

    Exactly, you can go to a pain clinic and for around 300 bucks get a prescription to just about anything you want. And for much dangerous stuff than weed.

    So the federal government should take an interest in how a particular state enforces its particular laws? This seems to be a rather unique position for a Con.

    Whoops, its a moral/culture issue, so per the Con handbook, Fed law trumps state law on matters of morality. Sorry, I was confused.

    Re: Federal authorities target 'marijuana industry' in California

    Rather than targeting the marijuana industry, if Obama were concerned for the welfare of the nation and its people, he would target the deficit by moving to legalize marijuana, license and tax the production, distribution and sale of it. Not only would this raise considerable revenues for the state, but it would great reduce the costs of federal, state and local law enforcement and reduce the number of prisoners being held by all three.

    That's a matter for the state authorities and the CMA to discuss -- it's neither the Federal government's responsibility nor its purview to run in there and "help" them -- just like with certain states and illegal immigration.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

If so I feel very sorry for all the people who (for whatever reason) cant grow for themselves, and are about to miss out on their dued part of the crop. Go through the government to get approved then have the government storm in and take it all away. Totally hypocritical in nautre.
    I've spoken to someone in the business out there. Essentially, the Feds had previously made some gentle suggestions about where not to set up shop (near parks, schools, or inside town limits). The operations getting pinched by the Feds are primarily those that ignored those suggestions or have evolved into chains or conglomerates (i.e. making "too much") or have blatantly flouted the rules regarding transportation and storage.

    weird how the Fed starts going after some of the operations when they get " too big"... but bend over backwards protecting other industries that get "too big".
    "instead of 'too big to fail", it's " we'll make you fail for getting too big"..( with no discernible standard for what "too big" entails)

    to me, it's not in he federal government's interest to worry about where these operations set up... those standards are for local communities to decide ( using zoning regs as their weapon)

    as for transportation and storage, I think that's the state domain as well... up until products wander into the realm of interstate commerce.
