    It's Congress that writes the laws.  Just like DADT, it will be a much better solution if Congress decides that it's time to change the rules regarding marijuana.

      But there's no question that that's doing it the hard way.  There are many far quicker, simpler ways to reform these laws, and I'd push for any of them over getting wheezing, geriatric, definition-of-dysfunctional Congress to do anything.
