Quote:Marijuana Reform Questions Once Again Popular In White House Online Poll
Washington, DC:
Questions pertaining to marijuana law reform are among the most popular public policy issues, as voted on by the public, in a new White House online poll.

Specifically, the public's call to legalize and regulate marijuana for personal and medical purposes finished among the top 10 questions, according to the poll.

In all, over 900 policy questions were submitted and voted on by the public during the week of May 21 to May 28, 2009.

According to the White House, the purpose of the poll is to "ensure that [the public's] ideas inform the development of open government recommendations and the writing of subsequent policy and the development of open government projects as soon as possible."

In previous White House sponsored online polls, questions pertaining to the legalization of marijuana have consistently garnered the top spot.

Commenting on the results, NORML Executive Director Allen St. Pierre said: "In both online surveys and in national public opinion polls, voters' support for common sense marijuana law reform – including the regulation of cannabis for adults – is greater than at any time in history. For the Obama administration, marijuana law reform represents a political opportunity, not a political liability. Federal lawmakers from both parties would be wise to embrace the results of this and other polls and act accordingly."

Obama will never, read my lips, never legalize hemp.

It's not up to him. It's up to the individual States to decide for themselves. There are now 14 states that have voted in medical pot and looks to be more on the way.

Keeping it in the minds of voters and state level politicians helps keep pushing legal reform. If we can keep pressure up then eventually it will be fully legalized. That will kick some of the legs out from under the funds collection for these NWO dicks and their trafficking of drugs while pushing their War on Drugs.

But in most of these states the Feds keep coming in and arresting growers, smokers (some sick), dealers and retailers of glass pipes and growing equipment, no matter what the state law says. So I think, yes, it's up to him to stop that practice.

Just because the DEA is violating State Laws thru bully totalitarian tactics doesn't give the FEDS the final say-so on if hemp is legal or not. The States make the laws and as an extension, the FEDS must represent the wishes of the people as expressed in those States laws. The FEDs are acting in a rogue fashion violating laws. This does not give Obama any say-so whatsoever. This means that the FEDS are corrupt. Medical pot is legal in 14 States and more are on the way. Some states also have made it legal to grow industrial hemp. According to the US Constitution, the FEDs must respect the laws of these states. If the FEDS act in opposition to properly passed laws in the States legislature, that means that the FEDs are overstepping their bounds as laid out in the 10th amendment and should be prosecuted according to law.
As long as the States have enacted these laws, the FEDs can keep raiding and illegally confiscating crops and equipment without end. Those illegal acts don't change the fact that they are raiding perfectly legal operations and those raids will not change that legality. It will only create a growing rift between State and Federal governments.

The news I was talking about was about some White House poll. So if it's the states business, why do you think does the White House concern itself with this topic?

So they can maintain the illusions that are crafted by the White House, such as that the Feds have the ultimate say-so concerning the governance of the US, that Federal Laws trump State Laws.

I agree with you that Obama and the Feds will never legalize hemp or pot. That's fine as according to the Constitution, the Feds have no powers that are not specifically laid out for them by the Constitution. Any areas that are not laid out for the Feds are left for the individual states to decide. This means the Feds cannot decide for the US if there are substances that are to be made illegal. Those decisions are for the Feds to uphold as they are decided by the States. THe only power the Feds hold is that of force of arms. They have no legal ground to stand on, so they use brute force and jail as threats to maintain the current un-Constitutional situation of letting DEA intercede in State matters.

I know that, and I'm saying. "Ain't gonna change". That's "change you can forget about".
