More Sanity and CHANGE

Obama to Stop DEA Medical Pot Raids

Presently, the Drug Enforcement Agency is still dominated by Bush era personnel who continue to enforce the "federal policy overrides state law" policies that produce pointless federal prosecutions against citizens lawfully providing medical marijuana where to do so is legal under the law of several of our states.

The White House said it expects those kinds of raids to end once Mr. Obama nominates someone to take charge of DEA, which is still run by Bush administration holdovers.

“The president believes that federal resources should not be used to circumvent state laws, and as he continues to appoint senior leadership to fill out the ranks of the federal government, he expects them to review their policies with that in mind," White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said.

This marks a return to sanity and conforms with the great weight of medical evidence. President Obama will keep his campaign promise. The question remains whether new Attorney General Eric Holder file federal criminal cases against those busted in the raids which have been ongoing since Obama's inauguration?



  1. That's good news. Making people with terrible diseases suffer for no good reason is just plain cruel.
