Congress quietly ends federal government's ban on medical marijuana
Tucked deep inside the 1,603-page federal spending measure is a provision that effectively ends the federal government's prohibition on medical marijuana and signals a major shift in drug policy.

The bill's passage over the weekend marks the first time Congress has approved nationally significant legislation backed by legalization advocates. It brings almost to a close two decades of tension between the states and Washington over medical use of marijuana.

Under the provision, states where medical pot is legal would no longer need to worry about federal drug agents raiding retail operations. Agents would be prohibited from doing so.
The war on medical marijuana is over. Now the fight moves on to legalization of all marijuana. - Bill Piper, a lobbyist with the Drug Policy Alliance

The Obama administration has largely followed that rule since last year as a matter of policy. But the measure approved as part of the spending bill, which President Obama plans to sign this week, will codify it as a matter of law.

Marijuana Legalization State by State :smokin:
Progress is being made state by state and the federal government is for the most part not interfering.

Johnny Appleseed
What we need are people who go around planting marijuana everywhere and anywhere. Maybe we can get the halfwits who spend all day sitting in front of their computers and who consider themselves to be members of Anonymous to get off their lazy asses and get out in the fresh air and do some vigilante gardening and spread the weed from coast to coast!

California wiping non-violent Marijuana crimes off criminal records
Retroactive legalization? :smokin:
San Francisco and San Diego announced that marijuana misdemeanors after 1975 will be automatically wiped off crime records and felonies will be reevaluated -- an effort to alter a decades long drug war fought mostly in minority community.

dzrtdwg: I agree with expunging misdemeanors, but not felonies. Often felonies are the result of plea bargains and so it's fair to assume that the person committed a more serious crime, but only actually got charged for a marijuana-related crime. Too many criminals get off too easy already!
