I Only Wish Obama Was This Sensitive To Federal Over-Reaching in Other Areas

New York Times: People who use marijuana for medical purposes and those who distribute it should not face federal prosecution, provided they act according to state law, the Justice Department said on Monday in a directive with political and legal implications.
