And that’s the sound of Colorado and Washington state stoner liberals getting hit in the face with political reality. Obama seems cool, sure, but never forget he’s still a politician who will say whatever for votes then do whatever he wants after. Barry’s not cool with weed sales in America, and just like he did in his last term by getting the Feds to shut down dispensaries and block legalization, he’ll do whatever it takes to keep people from being able to buy Kush over the counter.
It is important to note though, that while the Federal Government has the power to bring in officials to stop the sale and production of marijuana, they cannot enforce any laws on an individual basis:
Ian Millhiser, senior constitutional policy analyst with the left-leaning Center for American Progress, said the federal government, even if it sues to challenge the Colorado and Washington initiatives, cannot force police in those states to arrest people for marijuana infractions.
So at least you won’t get maced by the FBI for buying it legally, but you can bet the owner of any CO or WA weed store will have Obama’s goons in his ass so fast he’ll swear he voted for free prostate exams.
Sorry hipsters, Barry Obams is only cool with weed if it’s the 70′s and it’s him smoking it. But hey, at least cigarettes are legal!
