The President’s Pot Priorities

Dec 14 2012 @ 12:59pm

In an interview with Barbara Walters, Obama finally addresses the legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington:

President Obama says recreational users of marijuana in states that have legalized the substance should not be a "top priority" of federal law enforcement officials prosecuting the war on drugs. "We've got bigger fish to fry," Obama said of pot users in Colorado and Washington

Mike Riggs asks:

Do those "bigger fish" include licensed growers and suppliers of state-legal marijuana? Because that's the real issue here, as Jacob Sullum explained yesterday

I think Mike is being too, er, paranoid. All I can say is: thank you, Mr President, for hearing some of your most devoted supporters. And keep your word. We trust you; but we sure will verify.
