Obama: Congress’s Job to Change Pot Laws
Since Obama ignores laws, (think Hillary here) what difference will this make?
Check it out:
On Friday, President Barack Obama, who has admitted that during college he used marijuana and sometimes “a little blow,” told CNN that it is Congress’s job to remove marijuana from the government’s list of serious narcotics.
Although the president did not come out overtly and endorse such a move, one might imply that he would not stand in the way.
Recently, in an interview with New Yorker Magazine, Obama shared his belief that marijuana is no more dangerous than alcohol. “I stand by my belief, based, I think, on the scientific evidence, that marijuana, for casual users, individual users, is subject to abuse, just like alcohol is and should be treated as a public health problem and challenge,” Obama stated. “But as I said in the interview, my concern is when you end up having very heavy criminal penalties for individual users that have been applied unevenly, and in some cases, with a racial disparity.”
