President Obama was interviewed by Vice recently and took further steps toward siding with full legalization. Or, if you’re biased about the issue, the President clearly supports full legalization!
Ok, so his remarks were more nuanced, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that Obama believes it’s inevitable that legalization at the federal level should come some day as more States legalize it locally. Here are some of his remarks:
“We may be able to make some progress on the decriminalization side,” said Obama. “At a certain point, if enough states end up decriminalizing, then Congress may then reschedule marijuana.”
When one says things like “we should be able to make some progress” that sounds like someone is taking sides on the issue. You have to commend him for not playing politics in the issue. Most weak politicians wouldn’t go near the topic in case they upset their constituents. Oh, right, that pretty much drives all their lame decisions.
