The former potus could have directed the dea to drop it off of the schedule list, or more accurately he could have had the director of the hhs tell dea to pull it off of the schedule list.
But he did not......
This is actually one issue I agree with conservatives against Obama on. I feel like he didn't do enough to push us towards legalization. Granted, the swing over majority support for legalization didn't tip over til late in his Presidency and there wasn't much he could have done, but at the very least who could have taken a position on legalization as a means to drive policy. He was after all the first President to openly admit to having smoked pot in the past while running for the Presidency.
You never heard of keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer?

Jesse has some emotional problems. He really ought to wait until there is real action taken on this issue before publicly denouncing it.
His actions in choosing his underlings speak volumes. The comments from his underlings paint a very dark picture. At this point it is almost a forgone conclusion that he is coming after your plants. Such hypocrisy in leaving bathroom politics to states but when it comes to a plant there will be full federal enforcement via "cracking down". Back to the days of potentially having your life ruined over a dime bag in your pocket.

The only reason they are cracking down on pot is because they can't reap the rewards in taxes and are dumb enough to make this a political issue.
If it was legal (which I am against) it is only for the money...I think it is safe to say,nobody actually cares what the people think at this point.
Legalization is about money...it is not about helping people...its about money.
If the guvmint can gain control of a billion dollar industry and tax it and raise prices while not caring about people who actually need it....what does that tell you??
Its a hippie version of big pharma....don't be fooled.
