Will The White House Fight Marijuana Legislation?


Demonstrators march in Santa Barbara to support medical marijuana

President Obama’s Marijuana Problem

On election night last November, when voters in Colorado and Washington passed ballot initiatives making their states the first to legalize the recreational use of marijuana, they set the stage for potentially landmark legal battles that could define the future of American drug policy.

Since marijuana remains prohibited by federal law, President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder must decide whether to adopt a laissez-faire approach, signaling that the federal government will let states lead the way in dictating their pot policies, or to crack down on Colorado and Washington with lawsuits or arrests of those involved in the distribution of marijuana and even state officials who attempt to regulate and oversee the industry.

Full Article wth Graphs

"Amid changing attitudes about marijuana, a sizable percentage of Americans (72%)
say that government efforts to enforce marijuana laws cost more than they are worth.

And 60% say that the federal government should not enforce federal laws prohibiting
the use of marijuana in states where it is legal.

Last fall, voters in two states –Colorado and Washington state –
approved the personal use of small amounts of marijuana for recreational use"
.

Published on Apr 5, 2013
"For the first time in more than four decades of polling on the issue, a majority of Americans favor legalizing the use of marijuana.

A national survey finds that 52% say that the use of marijuana should be made legal while 45% say it should not."*

Is the decision really over? Is marijuana legalization right on the horizon?
According to a Pew research poll, it looks to be!

The majority of people now favor legalization-- so how long until the next step?
Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

The War On Drugs Is a Failure ...

Wink A bi-partisan panel of politicians somehow
come to a unanimous agreement that
The War on Drugs is totally effed up.

Could this happen in Maine???

:: Montana's Medical Marijuana Battle ::

"Marijuana was ubiquitous in Montana, it still is," says Rebecca Richman Cohen, director of the new documentary Code of the West. "Medical marijuana didn't change the culture of Montana."

This film chronicles the legislative battle over a bill that would repeal the state's 2004 legalization of medical marijuana.

The fight was spurred by some Montanans' concerns over the appearance of medical marijuana dispensaries and advertisements in age-inappropriate areas.

A culturally conservative state with a libertarian individualist streak and a popular Democratic governor (who appears in the Vimeo Video (see link below) wielding a cattle-branding iron to veto the repeal bill), Code of the West shows a state struggling with an "anxiety about the identity of Montana...and a nostalgia for a past that was really imagined."
