The new attorney general, Eric Holder, announced today that the federal government will stop raiding marijuana dispensaries in California. Both Presidents Clinton & Bush tried to intimidate medical marijuana dispensaries by raiding & confiscating their medicine in spite of the 1996 decision by Californians to legalize marijuana for the ill. It has been a major abuse of state's rights by the federal government. Many city councils including San Francisco\ Oakland\ Berkeley\ Eureka\ San Jose\ Santa Cruz\ Santa Barbara & most importantly, Los Angeles strongly protested these violations of California law.

Now with an enlightened Democratic president, California will be able to minister to those who depend on marijuana for pain relief & appetite recovery. Dispensaries in California will no longer be attacked by the DEA who should instead be making sure that drug companies produce safe & affordable medication instead of mindless obsession with a natural medication that is not addictive & safe compared to alcohol\ cigarettes\ pain meds. Our priorities are finally being decided by rational intelligence

Not surprising considering that Obama's drug czar, Gil Kerlowske, as Seattle police chief honored Washington's medical marijuana laws and refused to raid dispensaries. This confirms the general consensus that Obama views medical MJ as a state's rights issue rather than as an issue for the federal government. All that's left is for the DEA to change the status of pot from Schedule 1 to Schedule 3 or Schedule 4. Internal panels at the DEA have recommended this before but the Clinton and Bush administrations refused to act. Once weed is put on Schedule 3/4 there can be nationwide MMJ.
