Report Shows Arrests Don't Deter Marijuana Use

Let me see if I got this right. Arrests don't stop people from using marijuana, but despite the problems associated with being arrested (jail, legal costs, tougher to get a job, etc.) marijuana doesn't poise a serious addiction problem. LOL - again & again & again - ad infinitum.

San Diego Faces a Medical Marijuana Industry

The current situation is the direct result of President Obama speaking out of both sides of his mouth. On the one hand Obama is saying legalization is a bad idea, yet he does nothing. Furthermore, the White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy” is saying “Legalization is not in the president’s vocabulary, and it’s not in mine, Marijuana is dangerous and has no medicinal benefit…”

On the other hand AG Holder is telling people he is deemphasizing raids on “care providers” and “it’s a state problem”. He says this despite the clear intent of Congress and the Supreme Court’s upholding the law made by Congress. Evidently AG Holder forgot his job is to enforce the law (as opposed to an individual case) and thinks it’s to make it by not enforcing it.

The irony is Congress gave AG Holder the power & process to make it available for medicinal purposes. But here again AG Holder has done nothing.
