Democrat challenges Obama's War on Weed

Post  Progurt on Thu Aug 09, 2012 7:40 am

Yet another issue where the centrist Democrats attack us for giving a shit.
Barbara Lee And Medical Marijuana: Oakland Congresswoman Fights Crackdown (PHOTOS)
Last week was one of the the darkest for the medical marijuana movement, with the federal Justice Department picking two of San Francisco's best-known and best-behaving licensed medical cannabis dispensaries for closure. This came mere weeks after U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag moved to close Harborside Health Center -- the nation's biggest pot club and Oakland's second-biggest taxpayer.

Could things get much worse? Well, sure -- Haag could close all of San Francisco's dispensaries, as she is rumored to be considering to do by Christmas, according to sources.

Enter Congresswoman Barbara Lee, the Oakland Democrat who is mad as hell. She introduced legislation in Washington that would halt Haag and her three California counterparts in their tracks.

Lee on Thursday introduced a bill that would prohibit the Justice Department from using asset forfeiture laws against the landlords of state-legal medical marijuana clubs, according to Americans for Safe Access.
I'm sure the Bush Administration is somehow forcing Obama to do this. Since he can't take any responsibility for his own executive branch and his supporters refuse to ever allocate him any blame.

She is far from perfect, but Barbara Lee is pretty awesome as far as US politicians are concerned.

When she voted against the Iraq invasion, Oakland was awash in bumper stickers that read "Barbara Lee Speaks for Me".
