The gloves are off. Barack “of course I inhaled” Obama’s fake-progressive “health care for everyone, because we care” administration has now declared war on sick people in California.
U.S. attorneys based in California sent letters to medical marijuana dispensaries here warning them that they must close within 45 days or face criminal prosecution. They also threatened the landlords with Federal seizure of their property.
This is exactly like threatening ordinary pharmacies like CVS with closure and forfeiture. Oh, but wait. It was just about a year ago that the Federal government did find that CVS was allowing people to buy chemicals used to make methampethamine — also in violation of Federal law. Did they shut CVS down and seize all their stores? No, CVS paid a $75 million fine and promised never, ever, to do it again.
So who will be the big winner if this nonsense is allowed to go forward? The Mexican Cartels, of course! By knocking out the dispensaries, the Feds are giving the sick people of California only one place to go to get their medicine: illegal drug dealers.
First it was the War On Drugs, now it’s the War On Patients. And just a few days ago, the Obama administration also declared War On U.S. Citizens by publicly claiming to have killed a U.S. citizen without so much as a trial. So what’s next?
After the Arab Spring, and now the protests erupting in many major U.S. cities, who can tell?
