During a press briefing, CQ-Roll Call reporter Steve Dennis asked White House spokesman Josh Earnest if President Barack Obama had any reaction to Gupta’s recent advocacy in favor of medical marijuana. Dennis noted that Obama had once considered appointing Gupta as surgeon general of the United States.It was on friggin CNN and was 43 minute long! Plus there were NUMEROUS other spots in which Gupta apologized for being part of the systematic lying that IS marijuana prohibition.
“I have to confess, I did not see the Sanjay Gupta column that you’re referring to, so it is hard for me to comment on it at this point,” Earnest responded.
WTF good is that spying if they can't even see something on CNN?
It's not important, you say?
It's pretty damned important to the DEA. Important enough to blow $20 billion a year.
And, yes, it's important to the Obama admin as well.
I mean, we all know marijuana is terrorism. This admin sure acts like it is.
Some former directors of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) are afraid that Obama is abandoning the war on drugs, but drug law reform advocates have described Obama as worse than Bush.” More than 200 medical marijuana facilities have been raided since Obama took office, even though they are legal under state laws.And they didn't see it?
Obama was going to choose Gupta for Surgeon General some time ago. So I know they have heard of him
But they hadn't hear about his massive change of heart? It's been more than a week. It's been big news. They didn't hear about it?
Pardon me while I scoff.
“The polling clearly demonstrates that voters want this administration to give states a chance to implement their forward-thinking marijuana laws, and there are virtually no serious voices clamoring for a continued crackdown,” he added. “The only reasonable explanation for the ongoing harassment is that the president and his closest advisors are simply not paying attention to the actions of his federal agencies in the midst of this emerging national debate.”
Sack of shit, lying.
But, that is what all US presidential Administrations have done about marijuana, except for Jimmy Carter.
They lie about it.
