    Not too surprising really.

    I've never been into the stuff, but it seems the police spend way too much time on it.

    HELL YEAH! The one thing Obama is doing right. Now if only it was legalized nationwide. The economy would be fixed overnight! But in all seriousness, that is pretty awesome.

    Fantastic news, and about frickin time state and federal agreed on this.

    I couldn't be more envious since the UK has gone completely the other direction - trying to implicate weed as this evil harmful thing and bringing even harsher penalties for cannabis "offenses". :rolleyes:

    here is the whole article, since NY times likes to pester everyone to join before being able to view the articles:

    Now if only the East Coast would act like the West Coast and actually disburse it for medicinal purposes...

    This is very good news, let's hope the rest of the world adopts similar policies.

    About time, all we have had from the feds are lies concerning its use. Lets not be naive though because the police state has to have its wars to justify the $$$ that go into the ever growing police state.
    They want us all to fear something so they can keep building prisons and the whole beauracracy that goes with them.
    911 was a great example. How many billions on security because the feds let in those morons in the first place.
    Without bugymen they loose control, they need us to fear something.
    This is a good thing for those people it helps.

    I know but it's a start. It has taken care of a serious and stupid discrepancy between federal law and what was passed on a state level. It's a positive thing.

    Either legalize pot or criminalize alcohol, something doesn't add up and I am tired of US money going to waste.

    I feel, like with gay marriage, this is one of the topics that has to be settled on the federal level, otherwise each and every state is going to have different policies, and I really doubt that many are going to push towards legalization.

    Its the Feds who screwed this up, the last thing need is for them to dictate another. Or is this a case of, I don't like what people in that state think and want the government to use its threat of lethal force to make them think right?

    Selfish motive eh?

    Given those two options, Id be perfectly happy to criminalize alcohol.

    Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
