For the past several months President Obama has rode shotgun with his administration to wage war on medical marijuana providers, and patients involved with the substance.
This despite the President instructing the justice department to leave the states, patients, and providers of medical marijuana alone as long as they are following their state's laws regarding the substance.
"There is no excuse for the ruthless attack on vulnerable patients. With more than seventy percent of Americans in favor of legal medical marijuana, this federal interference is in direct conflict with the will of the public and the promises that President Obama made," stated Drug Policy Alliance.
So many resources are being wasted on pursuing these people as well as the almost 1 million people arrested each year in the U.S. for some type of marijuana possession charge that continuing on this path is ludicrous.
Instead of attacking the patients, and providers of medical marijuana in those states allowing it, the President, justice department, DEA, and any other agency flipping these persons lives upside-down should be able to provide safe and reliable access to their medicine rather than making criminals out them.
The whole thing is way out of hand, and continues on a road where it's like the fed's don't even care as long as the money for "THEIR" failed war on drugs keeps flooding in like a tsunami.
In the meantime, folks suffer because of their inability to obtain medical marijuana, and instead must turn to the streets to buy it.
Of course the cartels are cheering to keep marijuana illegal while the feds fight a 40 year old battle that actually makes them look pretty stupid when you consider all of the millionaires, and billionaires that are produced each year in the cartels because of the war on drugs.
That's just super.
