House Minority Leader Pelosi condemns Obama’s continued raids on marijuana dispensaries
[link to www.rawstory.com]

President Barack Obama’s emphasis on raiding medical marijuana dispensaries drew a rebuke from none other than House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) this week, who warned in a prepared statement that she has “strong concerns” about her political ally’s policy.

Since President Barack Obama took office, “more than 200″ state-approved medical marijuana facilities have been raided, according to Kris Hermes, spokesperson for Americans for Safe Access (ASA), who spoke to Raw Story on Thursday.

“That exceeds the number of raids his predecessor, George W. Bush, oversaw during his entire eight years in office,” he said.

The startling statistic wasn’t lost on Pelosi either, whose statement comes just days after she received a petition by marijuana patients in her district.

“I have strong concerns about the recent actions by the federal government that threaten the safe access of medicinal marijuana to alleviate the suffering of patients in California, and undermine a policy that has been in place under which the federal government did not pursue individuals whose actions complied with state laws providing for medicinal marijuana,” she said.

“Proven medicinal uses of marijuana include improving the quality of life for patients with cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and other severe medical conditions,” she added. “I am pleased to join organizations that support legal access to medicinal marijuana, including the American Nurses Association, the Lymphoma Foundation of America, and the AIDS Action Council. Medicinal marijuana alleviates some of the most debilitating symptoms of AIDS, including pain, wasting, and nausea. The opportunity to ease the suffering of people who are seriously ill or enduring difficult and painful therapies is an opportunity we must not ignore.”

That bad seed is two-faced.

That creature doesn't condemn anything. She's pretending to condemn with one side of her face but is praising Obama (in private) for following THEIR instructions to raid the dispensaries with the other side of her two-faced, demonic viper-visage. That's right: the President only does what he is INSTRUCTED to do by his bosses.

OP forgets, or doesn't realize, WHO the President WORKS FOR.

Someone send Pelosi the secret memo.

You know the one where it was considered a national security threat to continue to allow domestic production and sales of marijuana, and removing sales and profits from Mexican and South American drug lords, cartels and gangs who's businesses have been impacted and have threatens violence and assassinations as a result.

The Super-Secret memo goes on to explain how billions in payments from the cartels, gangs and drug lords to corrupt US government agencies, agents, government leaders and officials were withheld pending federal action against these U.S. states, their laws and "illegal dispensaries"

Relax, it's strictly a matter of national security.

Re: House Minority Leader Pelosi condemns Obama’s continued raids on marijuana dispensaries
Pelosi, who has long supported medical marijuana, is not alone in rebuking the Obama administration’s medical marijuana raids, but she is the highest ranking official to do so thus far.


The San Francisco Democratic Party passed a resolution (PDF) last week calling for Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to curb the raids, and nine other members of Congress wrote the administration late last year demanding more respect for states’ rights with regards to marijuana. There’s also a bill in the house, put forward by Reps. Barney Frank (D-MA) and Ron Paul (R-TX), that would allow individual states to set their own policies with regards to marijuana.
