Obama Supports (stoner) State’s Rights

Recreational marijuana should not be top federal priority: Obama http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSBRE8BD0Q720121214?irpc=932

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama says federal authorities should not target recreational marijuana use in two Western states where it has been made legal given limited government resources and growing public acceptance of the controlled substance. His first comments on the issue come weeks after Washington state and Colorado voters supported legalizing pot, or cannabis, last month in ballot measures that stand in direct opposition of federal law. “It does not make sense from a prioritization point of view for us to focus on recreational drug users in a state that has already said that under state law that’s legal,” he told ABC News in part of an interview released on Friday.
