Obama: Congress’s Job to Change Pot Laws

Posted on February 1, 2014   

Since Obama ignores laws, (think Hillary here) what difference will this make?
 Check it out:

On Friday, President Barack Obama, who has admitted that during college he used marijuana and sometimes “a little blow,” told CNN that it is Congress’s job to remove marijuana from the government’s list of serious narcotics.

Although the president did not come out overtly and endorse such a move, one might imply that he would not stand in the way.

Recently, in an interview with New Yorker Magazine, Obama shared his belief that marijuana is no more dangerous than alcohol. “I stand by my belief, based, I think, on the scientific evidence, that marijuana, for casual users, individual users, is subject to abuse, just like alcohol is and should be treated as a public health problem and challenge,” Obama stated. “But as I said in the interview, my concern is when you end up having very heavy criminal penalties for individual users that have been applied unevenly, and in some cases, with a racial disparity.”

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

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.
