Pelosi calls on Obama to respect states rights, end medical marijuana raids
By Steven Nelson | The Daily Caller 5 hrs ago
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi wants President Barack Obama to lay off the weed.
Reacting to an ongoing crackdown on medical marijuana facilities in California, Pelosi said in a Wednesday statement, I have strong concerns about the recent actions by the federal government that threaten the safe access of medicinal marijuana to alleviate the suffering of patients in California.
The California Democrat said that medical marijuana is both a medical and a states rights issue.
California legalized the use of medical marijuana in a 1996 initiative vote. Its comically easy for many residents to acquire the necessary medical diagnosis to legally purchase the drug.
In 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Obama administration would effectively end the Bush administrations frequent raids on distributors of medical marijuana.

HAHA...blatant pander to the OWS’ers.
Aren’t we just a little selective on the “states rights” issues? AZ on immigration, other states on voter ID?
We have 5-7 medical marijuana stores on one street. All of them have doctors onsite. They will prescribe for any ailment of pain.
That is exactly what I was thinking.
The democrats are shameless.
they should de regulate all prescription drugs and let people have what they want. the illuminate want to kill off 75% of the population is what I keep reading on numerous sites, so why not let people take what they want anyhow?
I agree. On Venice Beach, they have tables set up outside these “dispensaries” with a nurse or doctor, who will listen to your complaint, then prescribe medical marijuana and give you a card, then you walk inside and buy dope, “legally”.
I was tempted to sign up, saying that I had too much ambition and did not cough enough, to see if that qualified. But I suspect I’d never get another Federal contract again. Cough
I don’t believe the law stops anybody from getting dope and if they legalized it, I don’t believe that many more folks would become dopers.
How many States are suing the gov’t over Pelosi’s all time favorite, Obamacare?
No such thing as “medical” pot, especially in lala land where your kid can get a “prescription” for toe jam.
OMG!!!! HAHAHAHA!!! Pelosi supports States Rights now. How cute.
I know it’s not nice to kick a girl’s ass.
But just this one time?
States have rights?
The uncoordinated senile marionette can't connect the dots that this might have a much bigger effect on COMMICARE?
Ha ha and ha!
Did I ever mention how much I loathe that woman?

This is SanFran Nan on some of that new-fangled Kaliforny "medication"....
Nazi is all for states rights as long as its CA and its drug rights.
Nowadays, you can get a Medical Marijuana Card if you have Hay Fever. It was just a scam to get Marijuana Legalized.
The ironic part of this story is that I am the only person at work without one of those Cards, while I am the only person at work that has been through Chemotherapy, twice.
