It sure is a good thing the Obama administration said it wouldn’t go after marijuana dispensaries. Because, hey, Obama’s a nice guy. He’s a progressive! Oh wait…
We hired lawyers from day one. We were entirely compliant with state law. It was shortly after the federal government said it would not intervene if people followed state law. We wanted to abide by the rules. None of us had criminal backgrounds. We’re all regular guys. The only reason we got into this was because the federal government said they wouldn’t intervene.
He went out of his way to comply with state law. Yet a full year after this guy worked at a legal marijuana dispensary, the feds threw him in prison for two years. Gotta love that Hope and Change™!
ALL drugs should be legal in the United States at the federal level. ALL of them. Having small-man tyrants like Bush and Obama mandating drug policy all across the land is insanity.
Light “drugs” like pot should be legal at the state level. Heavier drugs can be legal or illegal based on what the the voters decide in each individual state, but god dammit, the federal government needs to stay the hell out of this issue.
And remember, the Democrats are just has bad on this as the Republicans are. Just like Republicans are not small-government conservatives, Democrats are not progressives.
