Attorney General says Justice Department will stop medical marijuana raids
Ok so the politicians are finally moving in the right direction with marijuana policies. According to the US Attorney General Eric Holder, the Justice Department will stop raiding medical marijuana spots. It’s definitely good news for people who can get medical marijuana from the places that were being raided by the DEA regularly under the Bush administration.
Raw Story – In a little-noticed remark Wednesday, Obama Attorney General Eric Holder said that the Justice Department will no longer raid medical marijuana dispensaries established under state laws but technically prohibited by the federal government.
The decision marks a shift from the Bush Administration, which was more draconian in its approach to hunting those who sought to dispense marijuana for medical purposes.
Numerous states have decriminalized marijuana in recent years, and new fiscal pressures are turning more states toward being more lenient toward first-time drug offenders as the cost of keeping drug users in jail becomes untenable for state budgets.
This is definitely good news but we can still significantly improve our economy with a federal decriminalization law. Lets keep letting Obama know that we support that!
