Employees at the Justice Department must have a lot of time on their hands now that the Obama administration has stopped prosecuting obscenity and marijuana use. Yesterday, Attorney General Eric Holder said that enforcing federal drug laws isn’t a “priority” for this President. The debate is over 14 states, which, in contradiction to U.S. law, allow patients to use marijuana for medicinal purposes.

Under the Bush administration, the DOJ didn’t target the sick, but it did clamp down on “larger operations that were selling marijuana for recreational use.” Obama has abandoned that approach and made it easier for criminals to sell to anyone – so long as they claim to produce medical marijuana. In states that do allow it, medical marijuana has opened the door to “pot clinics” that prescribe weed for everything from sleeplessness to stress … an any excuse will do to smoke pot mentality. But despite its so-called benefits, medical marijuana is even opposed by the American Medical Association. After all, what kind of doctor would prescribe smoking as a legitimate treatment for anything?Government Marijuana
