New Medical Marijuana Policy Issued: Feds Won’t Go After ‘Medical Marijuana’ Patients & Suppliers

Last night, the Obama administration issued a new policy that the government “will not seek to arrest medical marijuana users and suppliers as long as they conform to state laws, under new policy guidelines to be sent to federal prosecutors Monday.”

While this does seem like a step in the right direction, it does cause some confusion as well. Back in march, Attorney General Eric Holder said “that he wanted federal law enforcement officials to pursue those who violate both federal and state law.” Hopefully they were just blowing smoke up everyone ass to make it seem like they were going to be hard on drugs, as Bush’s administration was.

In any case, the new policy is a huge difference from Bush’s politics, “which insisted it would continue to enforce federal anti-pot laws regardless of state codes.” Fourteen states allow marijuana for medical purposes: Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington.

I’m hoping that we’ll get to see legalized marijuana very soon, but do you think when it does go legal, we’ll still get that paranoid feeling??
