President Obama is on record as saying the feds will not prosecute recreational marijuana in Colorado or Washington. He will respect the will of the voters!!

WASHINGTON — "President Barack Obama says the federal government won't go after recreational marijuana use in Washington state and Colorado, where voters have legalized it.

In a Barbara Walters interview airing Friday on ABC, Obama was asked whether he supports making pot legal.

"I wouldn't go that far," Obama replied. "But what I think is that, at this point, Washington and Colorado, you've seen the voters speak on this issue."

But the president said he won't pursue the issue in the two states where voters legalized the use of marijuana in the November elections. Marijuana remains illegal under federal law."

That's a good start. Let's hope the federal government continues to defer to states' rights.

He said he will respect the states laws as passed by the voters. If that be truth, he will allow my state to set up a retail distribution system.

 Quoting: WalkerTalker2


wrong he said he will respect the states rights to not go after recreational users which was then qualified by:


"The Justice Department hasn't targeted recreational marijuana users for decades. "


from your link.


Dispensaries aren't 'recreational users'. He basically said nothing if you read carefully.


don't be surprised when you hear about dea raids.

First of all, I am pro-legalization.

BUT this makes no sense and yet does, or wtf?

The EXECUTIVE branch of the fed govt has ONE BASIC FUNCTION per the Constitution, and that is to ENFORCE Federal laws. So basically O is saying, "I have no intention of doing my job."

Secondly, yes, if the whole country is stoned then it's less likely we'll rise up off the sofa and defend our 2nd amendment right to bear arms.

That's just my 2 cents' worth of ramble on the subject.

On second thought, ya know, maybe a perfect country would be everyone stoned, laughing, in a great mood, with a rifle under the sofa and a glock in the little box on the nightstand, that most likely will never be used because everyone is in a great, loving mood due to legal pot AND an upheld 2nd amendment!

Yep.

1) It's BS, like Mom saying one thing and Dad saying the other.

2) Yes, they waited, so now when people have their opportunity. They'll think they've already won and celebrate.

This administration has run hot and cold on this issue before. Don't make any plans based on their statements. They'll likely change again.
It is in the interest of Tyrants to reduce the people to Ignorance and Vice. For they cannot live in any Country where Virtue and Knowledge prevail. The religion and public Liberty of a People are intimately connected; their Interests are interwoven, they cannot subsist separately; and therefore they rise and fall together. For this Reason, it is always observable, that those who are combined to destroy the People’s Liberties, practice every Art to poison their Morals. Sam Adams

Moving forward.
Memories left behind. A new life, a new journey. I've built anew.
For mankind... for my kind.
The vessel stares back at me. From every angle, the menacing smile latches on.
Talking walls speak and spell my life story.
My past life.
The vessel sleeps beside me... the comfort breath.
Morning skin of machines, of humanity's beginnings.
Am I God? I've been called worse... drift in and out.
This vessel brings me sleep.
