The Legal Insanity Of Marijuana Prohibition Continues
President Obama continues to persecute legal marijuana in an attempt to preserve his re-election bid in 2012.
Many Americans thoroughly enjoyed watching the historical documentarian Ken Burns’ recent Prohibition series on PBS were disappointed by its abrupt end. Burns took the easy way out and didn’t point out that right around the same time the legal federal prohibition on alcohol ended, the prohibition of marijuana was ramping up in a big way. The alcohol-targeted Prohibition ended but marijuana prohibition remains. The fact of the matter is the situation is getting worse; the Obama administration is continuing a crackdown on anyone who is approaching the problem in any sort of sane or rational manner — including local and state government officials.
