What do Kenyan Muslims have to do with Obama?

I wouldn't waste my vote on either one of them.
I vote Libertarian Party. We are the balanced party

The only highlight of the night is that two states realized the war on drugs
isn't working and legalized recreational use of marijuana.

What you got, was four more years of the same, maybe worse...

My post to him was sarcastic. Yes, election threads like this usually stay open for a day or two.

The Obama administration has had a heavy hand with marijuana as of late, so we'll see.

Medical Marijuana: Obama Administration Continues Reefer Madness

For the cultivation of hemp, I know DEA will make it almost impossible to give growers
DEA licenses, or they will be stalling for years to give one. IMO the whole prohibition at the
federal level is backward to say the least. It's downright absurd.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for Colorado issued a statement:

"The Department of Justice's enforcement of the Controlled Substances Act remains unchanged," the statement said. "In enacting the Controlled Substances Act, Congress determined that marijuana is a Schedule I controlled substance. We are reviewing the ballot initiative and have no additional comment at this time."

Vicente issued his own warning to authorities opposed to legalized pot.

"It would certainly be a travesty if the Obama administration used its power to impose marijuana prohibition upon a state whose people have declared, through the democratic process, that they want it to end," Vicente said.
