(02-26) 20:00 PST San Francisco -- U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is sending strong signals that President Obama - who as a candidate said states should be allowed to make their own rules on medical marijuana - will end raids on pot dispensaries in California.
Asked at a Washington news conference Wednesday about Drug Enforcement Administration raids in California since Obama took office last month, Holder said the administration has changed its policy.

Break out those tea bags. I smell a revolution coming if Obama continues to inject his socialist ways into America.
Perhaps the states can allow farmers to raise industrial hemp, too.
The whole stopped clock analogy IMO.
Hey, at least its balanced by the Neo-Cons who want states’ rights for everything BUT this.
The blue states will probably legalize shortly. Easier to control stoned people than rational people.
a lot of the mexico issues have to do with pot smuggling. if it becomes legal in the US, thats a good thing isnt it?
The best rope in the world!
Bingo he has to do something right by accident, it’s the odds.
I liked the stopped clock analogy!
Even a broken clock is correct twice a day!
And our government sure is broken these days.
Yes we Cannabis!
Good! I’m no fan of maryjawoonah myself, but I AM a big fan of States’ rights and ending the drug war.
Liberals use the states right argument when it suits their philosophical inclinations. Conservatives do likewise. Nothing new here.
Take the few accidentally rational actions. Sprinkle them with some kind bud right? /s :)
I don’t care as long as I don’t pay for it.
Let the Obama supporters smoke. Tax the hell out of them; it’s the only way we’ll get any money out of them.
as I stated before, I don’t use drugs and can’t stand the smell of pot but I saw tax the stuff. The war on drugs has been a failure and we waste billions of dollars on it when it can be used on more important things. And just think of all the revenue that would come from selling it just from NBA players alone!
Some. I am about as conservative as it comes. And I favor this move.
Now tax the pot-smoking Obama voters.
The tough part will be for the DEA and the forest service that have to go clean up Mexican run grows in the national forests in states that legalize pot.
Sure, we all recall how easy the hippies and the anti government radicals were to control in the 60s...It's not like they, for good or bad, questioned authority and government at every turn.
