If the goal is to allow adults to toke up in peace and to stop arresting so many users and low-level dealers, it can be done without involving the “potrepreneurs.”

HFN editor’s note: if the goal is life liberty and happiness, then the government should stay the eff out of our homes and sanctuaries. The government creates work for itself, get back, Loretta! Since when is profit such an evil word, Republi-Crats? How much do you regulate, and tax, Mormonism, for example? What business is it of congress or the president what we do for recreation?

Congress looks at Justice’s marijuana decision | UTSanDiego.com

— The Obama administration is facing criticism over its attempt to straddle the federal law that makes marijuana illegal and state laws that permit recreational use of the drug.

In the first congressional hearing since the administration announced a new, permissive enforcement policy, law enforcement and drug-prevention groups and their congressional allies see an opportunity to push back. The administration’s Aug. 29 announcement allows the two states where recreational marijuana use has been legalized – Colorado and Washington – to go their own way without federal interference as long as they implement strong enforcement systems.

“We are at a precipice,” said Kevin Sabet of Smart Approaches to Marijuana, a drug prevention group. “We’re about to create Big Marijuana by allowing the commercial production, retail sales and mass advertising of this drug similarly to how we have had Big Tobacco for the last hundred years.”

“I’ve long believed that imprisoning people because they decide to smoke marijuana, or help other people do that, is one of our worst public policies. It interferes with individual liberties; it spends an enormous amount of money on police, prosecution and prisons, and it has been enforced in the most discriminatory way, with class, race and age determining who is prosecuted and who is not.”

John McCain On Marijuana: ‘Maybe We Should Legalize’.

yeah dog.

McCain isn’t the first one in his family to show signs of support for marijuana legalization. His daughter Meghan McCain came out in favor of pot legalization — and admitted she’d smoked a joint — in June 2012.

McCain didn’t just address the topic of pot legalization during the town hall. He faced a tough crowd during the event while discussing the situation in Syria, with many in the crowd largely opposed to military action.
