San Francisco Chronicle: Barack Obama, Drug Warrior

Seeking re-election, President Obama seems controlled by

President Obama has become quite the drug warrior. Last month, his Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives issued a memo that stated that it is unlawful for anyone with a state-issued medical marijuana card to possess a gun or ammunition. This month, four U.S. attorneys in California announced that they are escalating prosecution of medical marijuana clubs by going after the assets of their landlords and property owners. As a senator and presidential candidate, Obama supported states’ rights on medical marijuana. In 2008, campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt told me Obama “believes that states and local governments are best positioned to strike the balance between making sure that these policies are not abused for recreational drug use and making sure that doctors and their patients can safely access pain relief.”
