If Proposition 19 passes Feds will stop playing nice
When I first heard of Eric Holder's stance on California's proposition 19 if it passes I dismissed it knowing California at this point has implemented a full business plan including pot farms, factories, stores, an advertisement plan, taxation plans, the whole 9 yards. They also had the backing of retired cops judges lawyers and other notables. look how deep into this California is.
I do believe it will pass! My original thought was what are they going to do arrest millions? Now that this is getting closer Holder is coming out with his intentions and it is very disconcerting. We have real issues to deal with, we have wars to fight. These BS games have got to stop! There is no reason cannabis is illegal other than the fact that it would encroach on millions of harmful so called legal products.
Knowing how useful cannabis is along with how harmless it is, it is sick that they ever got to lump that in with pot.Funny enough they re legalized it during WW2 because they needed the products and made it illegal again when they thought people would not fight and Russia would use it against us after the war.
My concern now is that people all over that State on every level have exposed themselves and the feds now know exactly who they will have to go after. Attorney General Eric Holder who once promised to be easy on medical marijuana users now now says that If California voters pass Proposition 19, which largely legalizes pot, Washington will come down hard. If Prop. 19 passes Feds will stop playing nice
His stance should clear away any misconceptions about the legal status of marijuana or who is in charge. Marijuana though this is dead wrong remains an illegal drug under federal law, whether state voters feel otherwise. Growing, smoking, or selling the marijuana is against the law Holder indicated but I believe like gay marriage this too should be up to the state period.
President Obama's top law enforcement officer said the administration will "vigorously enforce" federal drug laws. Holder signaled a legal kitchen-sink approach was in the works if Prop. 19 wins. He would go after sellers and organizations that distribute the weed. The attorney general would also go to court to stop the measure from taking effect. We have better things to do damn it!
