If the War on Drugs includes a war on marijuana it appears that war is just about over although laws are still on the books and will still be enforced, albeit erratically and inconsistently.
President Obama says the Feds will not go after potheads in WA and CO, where voters recently approved recreational use of the drug. How can his Justice Department say federal laws only apply to 48 states ?
A poll in NY shows a majority of citizens support legalization, meaning unlike murder, bank robbery and rape, there is no moral certainty in enforcing the current laws.
You can't have an evil and only suppress it on occasion. After decades, America, for better or worse, has decided pot is OK.
But that's OK...alcohol is legal and there's lots of people making a living off those who indulge too much. The counselors will be safe.
