    DEA continues pot raids Obama opposes

    DEA continues pot raids Obama opposes

    Washington Times - DEA continues pot raids Obama opposes

    Drug Enforcement Administration agents this week raided four medical marijuana shops in California, contrary to President Obama's campaign promises to stop the raids.



    I will give Obama until he appoints the DEA replacement head, but still, Shouldn't he be letting the current guy know this ain't no longer cool?



    I have no problem with people who smoke weed responsibly. I could care less. These raids I disagree with and hoped Obama would indeed put a stop to them.


    I guess its not a priority to Obama or the old DEA guy has some ballz.

    For now, DEA is run by acting Administrator Michele Leonhart, a Bush appointee.
    I hope the guy can find a gig as a third shift parking lot security gaurd.

    If Obama is really serious, all he has to do is issue an Executive Order for the raids to stop. The question here, given his campaign rhetoric, is why isn't he issuing that Executive Order?

    While I don't think this is the highest of priorties, I agree that I hope sometime soon Obama does replace this guy or he gets with the program and following the current administrations will on this.

    Cause he's a man not to be trusted. Why would Obama stop pot raids? Why would he do anything to decriminalize/legalize it? Obama's goal isn't the reduction of government, it's the expansion of it. I don't think that Obama will do anything to alter significantly the drug laws of this country. The man is all talk, he'll tell you anything you want to hear to get you into bed and the next morning he'll be gone before the sun comes up.

    Because he said he would, and because he said he was a man of his word, who would bring change. Right now, I have to ask, "What change?".

    A change from (R) to (D), nothing more

    For now I'll give Obama the benefit of the doubt, considering the economic crisis and fast transition. However, in time he had better stop the raids. Its not like he even has to legalize marijuana, all he has to do is say "Its up to the states. California can makes its owns rules regarding the drug and the DEA will not be involved."

    I find it rather interesting that people think change can occur in less than 3 weeks.
