LEGALIZED POT? LIKE GETTING BONGED IN THE HEAD
In November, Californians will have the opportunity to vote on a
ballot initiative legalizing all marijuana use, whether medicinal or not.
According to the latest poll of likely California voters, Proposition
19 will pass. This will put the Obama administration in an awkward position.
The federal government is already suing Arizona for its recently
enacted immigration law. What will the Obama Justice Department do
when a state goes rogue by establishing its own rules when it comes
to licensing and taxing the sale of weed?
