The Obama administration is changing the way it enforces drug laws related to the medicinal use of marijuana. It may seem innocuous, but all I needed to see to know that it probably wasn’t a good idea was this quote:
“This is a major step forward,” said Bruce Mirken, communications director for the Marijuana Policy Project. “This change in policy moves the federal government dramatically toward respecting scientific and practical reality.”
If the Marijuana Project folks think this is a major step forward, then it’s probably not a good idea.
