Feds to stop prosecuting medical marijuana users
WASHINGTON – Pot-smoking patients or their sanctioned suppliers should not be targeted for federal prosecution in states that allow medical marijuana, prosecutors were told Monday in a new policy memo issued by the Justice Department.Under the policy spelled out in a three-page legal memo, federal prosecutors are being told it is not a good use of their time to arrest people who use or provide medical marijuana in strict compliance with state law.The guidelines issued by the department do, however, make it clear that federal agents will go after people whose marijuana distribution goes beyond what is permitted under state law or use medical marijuana as a cover for other crimes.The memo advises prosecutors they "should not focus federal resources in your states on individuals whose actions are in clear and unambiguous compliance with existing state laws providing for the medical use of marijuana."The new policy is a significant departure from the Bush administration, which insisted it would continue to enforce federal anti-pot laws regardless of state codes.
Good news for state's rights.I wonder how this will be spun.. :pAlso, this blows holes in the argument that the executive had to defend and enforce DOMA. Thanks for nothing, selective assholes.

I think it should be legalized, but people should also be warned of the health risks associated with smoking marijuana. Apparently it can do a lot of good, but it's also just as bad for your lungs(some people say worse) than smoking a regular cigarette us.

Not exactly. Cigarettes have thousands of chemical additives that make it dangerous, and few people smoke 20-40 joints a day.
