Marijuana Entrepreneurs Not Donating To Obama
Marijuana entrepreneurs and advocates are closing their checkbooks to the president’s re-election bid.
Four years after enthusiastically supporting Barack Obama, marijuana entrepreneurs and advocates are closing their checkbooks to the president’s re-election bid.
The reason: Anger over the Obama Justice Department’s crackdown on medical marijuana dispensaries after Obama himself promised in the 2008 campaign that he would not use federal “resources to circumvent state laws on this issue.”
“We’re all bummed out about it,” said Dale Gieringer, state coordinator of California NORML – National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
