    it's good idea. You forgot to mention Jimmy Carter - he's also one of them.

    That doesn't lessen the fact that it's yet another failed Republican war.

    "Drug warrior" Joe Biden - nor anyone else in the current WH - have yet to lift a finger against the free marijuana states, and there's ample evidence that they will not. There is a difference.

    •  Jimmy Carter has come out for legalization (0+ / 0-)

      if marijuana. The Obama administration has significantly ramped up the war against state-legal marijuana operations over the Bush administration. They have not yet made their true intentions known in Colorado and Washington as the ever-cautious Obama tests the wind (as he did with same-sex marriage). Most people here in Colorado who want to jump into the state-legal marijuana business are having to wait, because they don't want to make significant investments and end up having them confiscated as is being done in California or Montana, or worse, having to plea to 5 year prison term to avoid one of those notorious RICO convictions that end them up in prison for life. I also find it strange the you put "drug warrior" in quotes regarding Joe Biden.  

      As for the war on Drugs, Zeese says, “Pick a drug law you don’t like from the last 25 years and thank Sen. Joe Biden. He deserves a lot of the credit for the U.S., with 5% of the world’s population, having 25% of the world’s prisoners —-and the racially disproportionate impact of the drug laws.”
      This is just one person's opinion, but any casual research on the web will show his reactionary role in US drug policy.
