Gil Kerlikowske, Obama’s Drug Czar, said that he wants to eliminate the accurate name of the government program “The War on Drugs”, which people really know as a war on people since its hard to put a pound of marijuana away for a year.
He says we are not at war with people in this country, but that’s what the war on drugs is all about—putting people away!! According to the Wall Street Journal, “The administration also said federal authorities would no longer raid medical marijuana dispensaries in the 13 states where voters have made medical marijuana legal. Agents had previously done so under federal law, which doesn’t provide for any exceptions to its marijuana prohibition”.
The only problem with both Kerlikowske’s statement and Gary Field’s statement in the Wall Street Journal is that they isn’t true. At Charles Lynch’s first sentencing hearing the judge asked for a statement from the Department Of Justice, regarding the new statement not to go after medical marijuana states, the written reply came back – full speed ahead on the drug war! Kerlikowske hasn’t stopped the re-jailing of Brian Eppis to serve the rest of his sentence which has been re-imposed by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Eddy Lepp was just sentenced to ten years, when the judge inquired about changes the U.S. attorney said – full speed ahead, lets remand him today!
