Obama’s Medical Marijuana Crackdown All About Big Pharma


Marijuana Open BottleBy Steve Elliott of Toke of the Town

Federal prosecutors in the Obama Administration are going after medical marijuana dispensaries. How are pharmaceutical companies involved? Some leaders in this movement will actually tell you they aren’t; be very careful in whom you believe.

As pointed out on The Young Turks, this crackdown is nothing more than a process of eliminating the competition for Big Pharma. GW Pharmaceutical and other manufacturers want to take over the marijuana market with products like Sativex, a liquid extract of cannabis that contains both THC and CBD.

“Every single decision comes back to some lobbyist who paid for it,” Young Turks host Cenk Uygur said.

    “Please find me the source on this”

    When Nelson asked Obama about federal policy regarding Oregon’s medical marijuana law, which had been approved by voters a decade before, Obama declared, “I’m not going to be using Justice Department resources to try to circumvent state laws on this issue.” Two months later, another Oregon paper, Willamette Week, asked Obama, “Would you stop the DEA’s raids on Oregon medical marijuana growers?” His reply: “I would, because I think our federal agents have better things to do, like catching criminals and preventing terrorism.”

    OBAMA….NO We Didn’t.

  2. “This, coming from a President who told us he would take steps to legalize.”

    Please find me the source on this, because you’re wrong. He never said he was going to legalize, he said he wasn’t going to use federal government resources to circumvent state laws on the issue, but he never said he was going to legalize.

    Don’t make the anti-drug war movement look stupid.

  3. I never believed in BHO – always knew he was a Wall Street lackey – how else do you think he got into office? he was groomed and put there by the ruling class elite for a reason which was all spelled out in the choice of his cabinet as well as his bail-outs – ‘nuf said?

  4. This, coming from a President who told us he would take steps to legalize. How many more days til we can vote this lying sellout Wall Street Ass Kissing useless FUCK out of office and replace him with a 3rd party candidate who acutally represents the other 99% of US here in the U.S?
