Its funnier when a Republican hosts this dinner, since they aren't surrounded by friendly hollywood cronies, but rather stealth assassins like Colbert who are trying to destroy their Presidency

odinsposse: jake_lex: The more I think about this, the more I realize it's brilliant. What President Obama is saying, in effect, is this: "All this shiat about me eating dog and my Secret Service agents banging hookers is silly bullshiat nonsense, and I'm going to treat it that way. The Republicans can get all pissy and butthurt about it if they want, but they're getting pissy and butthurt about silly nonsense. So that means they're douchebags."

The Obama Campaign has only just begun, and they now have their target. This isn't even going to be close.

Which is pretty much what he did with the birthers last year. Clearly Obama should do a monthly special on Comedy Central called something like "Keeping it Real."


I saw a documentary about that. Sometimes it goes wrong.

I can just see Obama answering the 'red phone' with Moscow and the caller hanging up. He just turns to Biden and screams, "I don't like people playin' on my phone!" Cut to a scene in Moscow of him keying Putins limo.

I don't know. It's decriminalized in ohio, up to an oz and it's just a ticket (which is about the only good thing about ohio). He has so far not only ignored and laughed at people asking him about legalization/decrim, but it just seems that he's going after the legit business side in mmj states. It makes no sense.

Here is what he told Rolling Stone this month:

"Here's what's up: What I specifically said was that we were not going to prioritize prosecutions of persons who are using medical marijuana. I never made a commitment that somehow we were going to give carte blanche to large-scale producers and operators of marijuana - and the reason is, because it's against federal law. I can't nullify congressional law. I can't ask the Justice Department to say, 'Ignore completely a federal law that's on the books.' What I can say is, 'Use your prosecutorial discretion and properly prioritize your resources to go after things that are really doing folks damage.' As a consequence, there haven't been prosecutions of users of marijuana for medical purposes.

The only tension that's come up - and this gets hyped up a lot - is a murky area where you have large-scale, commercial operations that may supply medical marijuana users, but in some cases may also be supplying recreational users. In that situation, we put the Justice Department in a very difficult place if we're telling them, 'This is supposed to be against the law, but we want you to turn the other way.' That's not something we're going to do. I do think it's important and useful to have a broader debate about our drug laws. One of the things we've done over the past three years was to make a sensible change when it came to the disparity in sentencing between crack cocaine and powder cocaine. We've had a discussion about how to focus on treatment, taking a public-health approach to drugs and lessening the overwhelming emphasis on criminal laws as a tool to deal with this issue. I think that's an appropriate debate that we should have."

Thanks for that. It makes sense to go after producers who have toes dipped in both sides of the pool, and that is good to hear. Outright laughing at and dismissing questions by a vast majority in his online townhalls on the other hand... Maybe he's waiting on a second term to address it, but a simple 'that's not the biggest thing on my plate right now' would go better than laughter.

Nah, after reading the quote from Rolling Stone, I can respect what his aim is. He's trying to help mmj states enforce the laws they have by allowing the providers to still go through dispensaries, but not sell some on the side. Blindly following the draconian war on drugs would lose him respect.

He trolled those people big time.

I can't blame him. If I were President and had to deal with BS like that on an everyday basis, your damn right I wouldn't want to troll the hell out of those farkers.


I think the strategy is to just drive the nutters into a tailspin of frothing and derping to push them to the point of being more and more noticed and unattractive to the mainstream. There's no reasoning with people who think things like the President was born in Kenya or that he had Brietbart killed, or a master sociopath like Limbaugh. Trying to reach the Fox News crowd through their own walled-off, self-reinforcing universe of facts and myths is hopeless, so the only thing left is to learn how to press their buttons and drive them over the edge to create a negative spectacle out of them for the rest of the electorate.

It's fair to say there would be little pressure to change the law if it was not enforced, and on the other hand it would weaken federal supremacy to let states effectively vote or legislate themselves too far out of step of federal law, though personally I think the interpretation of the commerce clause that gives DEA jurisdiction of entirely intrastate production and consumption is nuts.

Oh, I agree. That's why I can see what he's aiming to do based on that quote. By stopping sales to rec users, he upholds federal law, but enforces state law by not stopping mmj users. It's a nice middle ground at the moment. I personally hope for national decrim at the least sometime soon.

From those comments to the Rolling Stone it sounds like he is trying to set some sort of precedent in not shutting down MMJ dispensaries/growers who, all available evidence would suggest, are not involved whatsoever in supplying the black market on the side. Is this actually true? Then what was the justification for the raid on Oaksterdam University?

Link
On the morning of Monday, April 2, a small army of federal agents - including representatives from the US Marshals, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Internal Revenue Service - descended upon Oaksterdam's brick-and-mortar facility. They seized instructors' curriculums and student records, among other items. Federal authorities also froze Oaksterdam's bank accounts, resulting in immediate lay-offs to the facility's 40+ full-time and part-time staff. Why? As of yet, no one in a position to know is talking.

From his comments, that is what it sounds like. The only way those would still be valid in relation to oaksterdam, is if, and only if, they were knowingly accepting people who were not valid providers, or if the providers were also selling on the side. I don't see how that would justify raiding THEM, but it's the only thing I can think of that doesn't contradict his words.

/commerce clause is bull in relation to cannabis. There have been a few cases I've read of where growers for personal use had it used against them because they interfered with the illegal transportation across state lines by not going through the black market.... figure that one out o_O

From those comments to the Rolling Stone it sounds like he is trying to set some sort of precedent in not shutting down MMJ dispensaries/growers who, all available evidence would suggest, are not involved whatsoever in supplying the black market on the side. Is this actually true? Then what was the justification for the raid on Oaksterdam University?

On the morning of Monday, April 2, a small army of federal agents - including representatives from the US Marshals, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Internal Revenue Service - descended upon Oaksterdam's brick-and-mortar facility. They seized instructors' curriculums and student records, among other items. Federal authorities also froze Oaksterdam's bank accounts, resulting in immediate lay-offs to the facility's 40+ full-time and part-time staff. Why? As of yet, no one in a position to know is talking.


A friend of mine, and graduate of the school, told me that it was in response to the college's request for federal financial aid for its students. The link you provide makes no mention of this and in the FAQ it only says there is no direct aid. He lives in Cali and I don't, probably wrong though.
