President Obama, Call the DEA Off Medical Marijuana

Barack Obama ran and won based on his appeal to the youth vote, hope, and change. He not only admitted to smoking marijuana, he proudly admitted it. And after he was elected, he announced that the DEA would be using common sense and compassion, and would no longer be raiding medical marijuana facilities. Patients and their families applauded this decision.

But now he’s nominated Michele Leonhart to be permanent DEA director — someone who has blatantly ignored President Obama’s own directive to leave dispensaries alone, and started raiding them again. Someone who doesn’t care about sick people. Someone who is against the very idea of people taking a stand for their own health, after expensive and dangerous pharmaceuticals have failed them.

Thank you! Hugs and nugs!

P.S. Thanks to Alaskan Dad for alerting me to this.

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. 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.
