    scrutinize anything of Ron Paul's, it starts to collapse under libertarian and far right ideology.  Ron Paul being right for the wrong reason is not going to convince anyone in power to change policy.

      The DEA has been worse in CA under Obama than under Bush.  Hopefully, a discussion if this issue will push Obama to the left on it.

        I couldn't be sure, so I didn't mention it in response to another comment.  Something about raiding dispensaries after saying they had no plans to?

        But I also don't think the President will be 'pushed' on the issue.  Marijuana legalization has been the top choice each and every time the WH has asked people to step up and voice their suggestions, and has been blown off time and again.  I simply don't think the President feels it is politically feasible at this point, and, based on those DEA actions you mention, I'm not even sure he would be interested if he did think it feasible.
