Yet Another Out-Of-Context Obama Quote

Today, President Obama made a stirring plea to the Supreme Court, quoted here on Twitter:

The only “gotcha” is that he was speaking about legal same-sex marriage, not cannabis. But a majority of the American people now support legal cannabis — and that becomes a huge majority when we’re talking about medical marijuana — so when is the entire Federal government going to recognize what this majority already understands?

Perhaps on February 5, when US District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller is expected to hear final arguments in a case that might just take “marihuana” off Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act for good. And believe me…that would be good!

About Old Hippie

http://gplus.to/OldHippie Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better. BeyondChronic.com is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others. Old Hippie teaches about safe use of cannabis edibles, Canna Caps, vaporizers, dosing, and even microdosing.

I lived in Alaska for 23 yrs, the first state to legalize pot, and pot never was a problem for any of us, but we fought the good fight and that’s what we need to do now never back down, insist on total legalization of pot, read the statistics of how total legalization in Portugal and other countries has helped society, every year the fda approves pharmaceuticals from the sorcerers that have been tested for very limited time periods pushing their stuff but pot has been tested, studied, dissected for over 35 years! I personally have been fighting forever and as a chronic pain suffer in my so called golden years, I demand the right to have control of my own destiny! We can support war, inc but it’s still an issue to have and use a god given plant wtflip! I went to jail over pot, and protesting nuclear and promoting alternative fuels and medical but I am saddened to see the turn out for super(toilet) bowel(lets worship overpaid athletes with tight pants the gladiators) sunday, if people would just make demands- at that turn out level- you would restore your constitution and all personal freedoms! create and sign petitions care2,oneorg,changeorg, norm write all ur legislatures and mention maybe u should step down if u do not legalize,, write pres via online whitehouse ur voice and signatures are essential in making progressive positive change! thank you!
