Obama: Congress's job to change pot laws
« on: February 02, 2014, 08:59:14 AM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

He is correct in that until Congress de-criminalizes marijuana and removes it from the Schedule 1 restricted narcotics list, it does not matter what laws the States pass because Federal Law trumps them.  A promise from a Liberal Administration's AG not to prosecute is worth less than a pitcher full of warm Biden.  The next Administration will likely take a different view and decide to enforce Federal marijuana laws, and all of those registered growers, dispensary owners, users and other licensees will make a great list for some ambitious AUSA to start his RICO investigations with.

When Eric Holder leaves office, the pot party across the Country will come to a screeching halt.
