    Given that resources, in the short term, are fixed. The more the feds arrest and prosecute cannabis users (note the feds are not the state), the less they can tend to cases involving murder, terrorism, abduction, etc.... Hence, to do so would be a painful misallocation of opportunnity costs.

    How many murders, child abductions, etc... are you willing to ignore so that non violent pot users can be federally prosecuted?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Did you see my response #2?

    The law exists. I expect the CLEOUS to enforce it, as is his duty to do so.

    How cavalier!

    The law is still being enforced, although the manner in which it is seems to have changed for the good.

    What fools, holding the expectation that the President will enforce the law.

    If you do not agree with how the President chooses to enforce the law, then let your logic speak for itself. However, if you are going to act like a partisian hack, and argue against anything Obama does, than expect your failure to be noted on a constant basis.

    It makes little sense to use federal funds to arrest users, and state certified suppliers. In accordance, the federal policy on cannabis use, within medical marijuana states, will shift (and logically so) focus to those not obeying state law in regards to production.

    Now; if you believe his doing so is in fact arbitrary, please explain your logic. There is nothing i love more than watching you backpeddle and shuffle your way through an argument

    Selectively enforcing the law, based on the subjective standard of what should and should not be illegal, as we have here, violates the 'faithful execution' clause of the oath of office.

    That is, when the President does this, as He is now, he isnt doing his job.

    And by your same token, the fact that Bush did not advocate federally prosecuting every single medical cannabis dispensary in the state of California proves he "violated" the faithful execution clause.

    Sorry to break it to you, but Federal policy does not include arresting and prosecuting state certified pot users. In fact, i challenge you to find one case within the last 10 years in which the FBI, DEA, etc... has federally prosecuted someone on the basis of misdemeanor possession or public intoxication (in regards to cannabis).

    For the FBI/DEA to do so would be as ridicules as your position on the matter. It is a misallocation of opportunity costs!

    Yes. So?
    How does that invalidate my position?

    Cannabis production is still being investigated, and prosecuted federally. You fail to address how his policy, in regards to cannabis prosecution, is in violation.

    This is either a lie, or a gross lack of reading comprehension, on your part.
