SO YOU STILL THINK YOU LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE

October 1, 2012

[Editor Note] I am sorry if this is a little turbulent. I was highly emotional while writing this. All I can say is if you vote for either of these puppets, shame on you for a thousand years.

I was looking through my FaceBook page when I came across an article that made me stop and say, “What The Fuck”.

Ok, let’s start with this, in 2009 Eric Holder said The Obama administration would use a new approach in comparison with what the Bush administration used with Medical Marijuana dispensaries.

NYTimes

Mr. Holder said the new approach was consistent with statements made by President Obama in the campaign and was based on an assessment of how to allocate scarce enforcement resources. He said dispensaries operating in accord with California law would not be a priority for the administration.

Then there is this quote from the Obama campaign;

www.mpp.org

“Voters and legislators in the states – from California to Nevada to Maine – have decided to provide their residents suffering from chronic diseases and serious illnesses like AIDS and cancer with medical marijuana to relieve their pain and suffering,” said campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt.

“Obama supports the rights of states and local governments to make this choice – though he believes medical marijuana should be subject to (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) regulation like other drugs,” LaBolt said. He said the FDA should consider how marijuana is regulated under federal law, while leaving states free to chart their own course.

Ok, here comes the “What the Fuck”, part of this blog where Obama just does just the same as Bush.

Opposing Views

Detroit, MI — Four medical marijuana patients and caregivers will be sentenced in Michigan federal courts this week, highlighting the human cost of the federal government’s intolerance for state medical marijuana laws.

I added emphases.

Now as I said in the title Barrack Obama is a puppet. Now that is my opinion. However, his actions on this are bearing out that he is doing the bidding of the pharmaceutical companies.

Below is the part of the story that should outrage any US citizen that still believes that the Federal government is for the people. It is what part of the evidence was not to be mentioned during the trail.

In April, the Duvals were convicted at trial, the expected result of federal laws that prohibit any medical defense or reference to state law in front of juries.

So what does the Obamanator have to say to defend going back on what he said he would do?

Rolling Stone

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.

Now this is a total crock, Obama is saying that he has cut down on the prosecutions of Medical Marijuana users, (Patients) which is clearly a lie according to the above article. He said he told the Justice Department to, “Use your prosecutorial discretion and properly prioritize your resources to go after things that are really doing folks damage.

My Thoughts

Since when is weed hurting anyone. The facts are out there it is helping with a number of diseases. We have to face the reality as long as the drug companies have their tentacles in the government we will never see Medical Marijuana free and clear. Hell they have made opium legal it comes in the form of many pills. See the difference is they can make big money off of the drugs they make out of opium. I feel that if you could not grow Marijuana in North America the drug companies would sell it as a product.

Remember, if your state legalizes Medical Marijuana always look over your shoulder because sooner or later the Feds will raid your dispensary and get your name and put you in jail so you have to suffer with what ever disease you are using it for.

    And so I will ask…just WHO are you going to vote for? Ron Paul? The man who wishes to abdicate responsibility to the states. Which may serve those in certain states well, but throughout huge swaths of the nation will set drug policy reform back decades. And who, as Obama so clearly stated in the RS interview you quote- has no real power to overthrow federal law.Never mind that he has zero chance of winning…

    Gary Johnson? Which sadly but truly is simply throwing your vote away.

    So yes, we are faced with the evil of two lessors. But history has taught us that the democrats, and even Obama, are the best current option to move things forward.

    And I’d urge you to reread the Rolling Stone article you quote from- particularly the bit from Ethan Nadelman, head of the Drug Policy Alliance, echoing what EVERYONE I know at the higher levels of the movement have said- that the federal crackdowns have nothing to do with Obama, and everything to do with old generation drug warriors and their sympathizers at high levels in the federal agencies.

    And we can bitch and moan all we like- but truth be told- we have gotten lazy. Medical Marijuana has become an easy end run around prohibition. And despite, for the first time in our history having 50%+ public support for legalization or decriminilization the movement has stalled. And as we saw in the past two years in states like Wyoming- there is increasingly a backlash- where the people support medical marijuana overwhelmingly, but then turn when they see the abuses of the system.

    So let’s be honest. And not be lazy. Despite the validity of medical cannabis- what a majority of us mean, and want- is legalization for “recreational”, for “personal” use. So let’s stop being dishonest. Let medical cannabis take it’s own course- which quite honestly, is standardized preperations, and breeding to maintain the positive health effects while removing the recreational effects.

    And beyond the presidential race- realize that the races for your congress critters. Your governor. your local officials. And maybe most importantly your state and/or local judges and sheriffs may be among your most important votes this year. (some states may also elect positions such as the state board of pharmacy or other medical oversight that may play a role in the issue)
