NO MORE Medical Marijuana Raids: Official US Policy now

Speaking at a press conference on Feb 25 with DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart, and reiterating a position made by the White House following DEA raids in California on February 4, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told reporters that ending federal raids on medical marijuana dispensaries “is now American policy.” The Attorney General’s comments are the latest sign of a sea change in federal policy that prohibits the use of medical cannabis in the thirteen states that have enacted such laws.

This should free up police departments to take care of criminal matters instead of busting medical suppliers.  It should also free up cities to take tax revenues from legal dispensaries, rather than banning those types of businesses.
