that's pretty great, marijuana legalization has gone from liberal fantasy to conservative talking point!

When it comes to a drug that is currently listed in schedule I, if it is undisputed that such drug has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States and a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.."
No accepted safety of use under medical supervision? How medically supervised are all the patients in all the medical states? Excerpt from US Govt Cannabinoid Patent 6,630,507
Cannabinoids have been found to have important properties...cannabinoids useful in the treatment... stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease...
All it will ever be is a conservative talking point and a liberal talking point too. They will say what everyone wants to hear about MJ, but once elected it seems to change. We see that happening now with Obama, why should we expect it be any different under anyone else.
Until big Pharma gets it figured out in their favor, it'll won't be legal. When big Pharma gets it figured out, then it will be legal just for them to grow and make gazillions from. It won't be the politicians that move MJ forward it will big big conglomerate campaign donors. MY TWO CENTS......
I hope I'm found to be in error about all this, but I'm not going to hold my breath.
Liberalism is the trust of the people tempered by prudence.
Conservatism is the distrust of the people tempered by fear.
In the end Obama was just another ratsucking politician. We need business people to run our country. And I'm not talking Jeffi Immelt corporate pigs. Real people who have scratched up their own money and put it on the line following their mind and hearts. A real business person would see the folly of prohibition and would unleash the genius of American entrepenuers who would immediately start profitable enterprises and pay taxes and hire people. That's what we need, regardless of political philosophy. Right wing, left wing, it's the same turkey. Freedom is the answer. He or she who embraces the most liberty is getting my vote. All others need to go the fuck away.
I often wonder if there is more than just campaign money that coerces politicians to allow cannabis prohibition to continue. Could it be that threats of physical harm and/or damage to reputation of politicians and their families play a larger role in their decision making?
Who is really behind the scenes forcing these decisions?
Have you noticed that even Obummer nervously laughs off any questions about it?
I cannot understand why any moral person, politician or not, would allow the status quo of such injustice to continue to be allowed.
The violence and death associated with drug turf wars, the inhumane and unfair treatment of innocent human beings by law enforcement and the resulting harm to the welfare and reputation of millions of families...it doesn't make sense.
i see this as part of the slow and steady trend
politicians don't change much, whatever stripe they have on their backs
big pharma will get a piece of the cannabiz, that probably can't be stopped completely
but compared to 20 years ago, it's progress

"We need business people to run our country"
i would have to disagree,they are too ruthless,what we need are intelligent moral people in there perhaps a dr.
and i would also say its just as much the voters fault for beleiving media sound bites that get run 10 times a day until its drilled into your concience,i think this day and age we have to turn off the TV for a while and do our own critical thinking.
and once the whole country is thinking for itself then progress can be made.
and isnt this the guy who got caught drunk driving and then blammed the pot ?
