I think if Obama follows through on his promises to call the DEA off of medicinal marijuana, and advocates the decriminalization of possession/cultivation for personal use he'd come out ahead. More states would be likely to pass medical marijuana laws and and the money wasted on busting people for having a bit of weed on them would be saved.

I'm sure the fark libs will be up in arms over the following statement (and for the record, I do not vote for either party or smoke pot).

If anything, the Obama administration has been MORE aggressive in going after medical marijuana than Bush. He's also been hypocritical regarding State's Rights. He's for it when it comes to gay marriage and against it when it comes to medical marijuana? He should be criticized more for how he broke his promise on this issue.

He didn't break any promises. The busts that have been made have been to clinics that are not following the state laws, and have ...


Obama shills lying to shill for Obama on Fark's politics tab? Shocking.

Matthew Cohen, a medical-marijuana farmer in Mendocino who was growing 99 plants under the direct supervision of the county sheriff. As part of a pioneering collaboration with local law enforcement, Cohen marked each of his plants with county-supplied tags, had his secured facility inspected and distributed the marijuana he grew directly to patients in his nonprofit collective.

Cohen appeared to be precisely the kind of caregiver that [Obama] advised should be given safe harbor for operating in "clear and unambiguous compliance with existing state law." But last October, DEA agents stormed Cohen's farm in the middle of the night and cut down his crop. Sheriff Tom Allman, who learned of the raid on his turf only an hour before it was executed, was outraged. "Matt Cohen was not in violation of any state or local ordinances when federal agents arrived at his location,"


"I'm not going to be using Justice Department resources to try to circumvent state laws on this issue"

This is one of many promises Obama has broken. The question for real liberals (as opposed to the party shills) is do you want to reward a lying ass politician with further support.

Keeping pot illegal is a benefit to the large pharmaceutical companies. They certainly don't want you to be able to just grow a plant instead of purchasing highly profitable drugs from them.

Then think of all those highly profitable prisons that are now being run by private companies.

Then there is all the money and property being seized by law enforcement agencies. We wouldn't want to slow that down either.

2012-06-02 06:36:17 PM
For the assholes who always pop up in these threads and claim that pot isn't medicine, here's a sitting New York State justice explaining the facts of the matter:

My survival has demanded an enormous price, including months of chemotherapy, radiation hell and brutal surgery. For about a year, my cancer disappeared, only to return. About a month ago, I started a new and even more debilitating course of treatment. Every other week, after receiving an IV booster of chemotherapy drugs that takes three hours, I wear a pump that slowly injects more of the drugs over the next 48 hours.

Nausea and pain are constant companions. One struggles to eat enough to stave off the dramatic weight loss that is part of this disease. Eating, one of the great pleasures of life, has now become a daily battle, with each forkful a small victory. Every drug prescribed to treat one problem leads to one or two more drugs to offset its side effects. Pain medication leads to loss of appetite and constipation. Anti-nausea medication raises glucose levels, a serious problem for me with my pancreas so compromised. Sleep, which might bring respite from the miseries of the day, becomes increasingly elusive.

Inhaled marijuana is the only medicine that gives me some relief from nausea, stimulates my appetite, and makes it easier to fall asleep. The oral synthetic substitute, Marinol, prescribed by my doctors, was useless. Rather than watch the agony of my suffering, friends have chosen, at some personal risk, to provide the substance. I find a few puffs of marijuana before dinner gives me ammunition in the battle to eat. A few more puffs at bedtime permits desperately needed sleep.

This is not a law-and-order issue; it is a medical and a human rights issue. Being treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, I am receiving the absolute gold standard of medical care. But doctors cannot be expected to do what the law prohibits, even when they know it is in the best interests of their patients. When palliative care is understood as a fundamental human and medical right, marijuana for medical use should be beyond controversy.

No, you can stop supporting the completely bipartisan drug war and vote third party.

If you reward Obama with your vote after he broke his promise on this issue, Democrats in the future will have no incentive to keep their promises to liberal voters.

One thing is for certain: right now, the Democratic Party is absolutely correct in its assessment that kicking its base is good politics. Why is that? Because they know that they have inculcated their base with sufficient levels of fear and hatred of the GOP, so that no matter how often the Party kicks its base, no matter how often Party leaders break their promises and betray their ostensible values, the base will loyally and dutifully support the Party and its leaders (at least in presidential elections; there is a good case that the Democrats got crushed in 2010 in large part because their base was so unenthusiastic).

In light of that fact, ask yourself this: if you were a Democratic Party official, wouldn't you also ignore - and, when desirable, step on - the people who you know will support you no matter what you do to them? That's what a rational, calculating, self-interested, unprincipled Democratic politician should do: accommodate those factions which need accommodating (because their support is in question), while ignoring or scorning the ones whose support is not in question, either because they will never vote for them (the hard-core right) or will dutifully canvass, raise money, and vote for them no matter what (the Democratic base).

The important thing is that you learned.

When I first heard about him (thanks to some door to door Ron Paul worshiper), I thought he seemed like a decent guy. Against the wars, against the drug war, he seemed pretty sane for a Republican.

And then I researched the nitty gritty of him. The Gold Standard thing was a total turnoff for me in addition to his worship of Ayn Rand. Then I realized how looney toons he was.

Well that and the addition of crap like supporting DOMA, and taking federal money for pork in his district, made me realize what a sham-artist he really was.

Spot on, but one big group you're leaving out: Trial lawyers. The people paid to keep middle class pot smokers out of prison.

BullBearMS: Mrtraveler01: Hell, even Ron Paul (poster child for state rights) is ok with the Federal Government getting involved with gay marriage.

Oddly, Obama's position is that civil rights for gay people should be decided by the states.

On this afternoon's special broadcast, Jake Tapper echoed that point: "The president said he thought this was a state-by-state issue."

Well, before Roe v. Wade, abortion was a state-by-state issue, too. So was slavery. There are 44 states in which gay men and women are currently barred from marrying one another. Obama's position is that, while he would have voted the other way, those 44 states are perfectly within their rights to arbitrarily restrict the access of certain individuals to marriage rights based solely on their sexual orientation.


But yet Obama isn't defending DOMA isn't he?

Spoken like a party shill.

For actual liberals who want to accomplish liberal goals, continuing to support the political party that supposedly represents our views as they continue to move farther and farther to the right, does nothing but encourage this more of this behavior.

Take a lesson from teh ghey. When Obama refused to keep his promises for the first two years he was in office, gay activists started a fundraising/support/donation boycott. Gay protesters appeared at campaign appearances. Gay voter turnout hit an all time low.

Suddenly, after the mid-term, shiat started getting done. DADT was repealed, The Justice Department stopped defending DOMA. Obama announced he was "evolving" on gay marriage.

Politicians don't care until shiat gets real.
 
2012-06-02 07:07:15 PM
Hasn't Obama largely continued along the decriminalization track that started under Clinton in his lame-duck period and continued under Bush? I know he hasn't been advocating outright legalization, but the "tougher on medical marijuana than Bush" doesn't really jive with what I've heard otherwise.

Has he issued any actual policy directives to the DoJ that would indicate a crackdown? I know there have been raids, but Obama doesn't personally sign off on every individual raid, he just sets the general guidelines within the bounds of what Congress allows.

yes sort of
but in the end, the RIGHT would crucify him for being soft on drugs and killing america's kids.
my guess is that obama legalizes pot in his second term.

the simplest position for obama to take when this question gets asked is to bring the issue to SCOTUS once a state legalized pot.

Force the court to decide if the federal drugs laws are constitutional in the first place.
LOL

/legalize all drugs and move on already
/yes, fine, NOT PCP ...
/yes, legalize heroin. pure heroin will lead to less deaths by overdoses and not substantially increase the number of heroin users.
