President Obama continues to attempt bringing together his liberal base by tackling controversial social issues. It appears he now wants the liberal leaning marijuana users to support him despite policies that threaten to lock them up. Cannatruths offers some suggestions.
First he would need to sign an executive order moving cannabis from a schedule one drug to a schedule five so that it could legally have a value for medical use. Then he would need to guarantee that federal resources used in the drug war will be directed entirely away from anything related to cannabis that isn’t coming through the borders, at the very least those who are in compliance with their state law.
These two things would be sufficient enough to regain trust on the issue of cannabis, but it is very unlikely that the administration will do this. Luckily we do have a candidate in former two-term governor of New Mexico, Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson this year, who toured a Denver medical marijuana dispensary the other day and is willing to make these policy changes.
