Washington, D.C. -- Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she supports medical marijuana "for people who are in extreme medical conditions" and wants to "wait and see" how recreational pot works in Colorado and Washington state.

In an interview with CNN international correspondent Christiane Amanpour promoting her memoir Hard Choices, Clinton suggested she may be open to marijuana policy reform.

They will say anything to get elected..

Gotta remember Obama appeared to have the same stance until he was elected and then the DEA went hog wild on the medical marijuana states .

To better understand the liberal/Democrat view of legalization one might want to look at Ruth Marcus June 24, 2014 Washington Post opinion column.

 

Her column offers a pretty accurate view of the liberal take on marijuana and legalization in my opinion.

 

Yours may vary.

^^^ I call BS. The artical has nothing to do with a liberal agenda. It's just a doctor talking that has not studied people at all. Dr. Volkow says a bunch of crap that makes no sense if you have studied marijuana and how it effects people by studying the actual users. She is clueless about marijuana users and she gets paid to say this crap.

Hilary, Real people wanna know,  What the hell happened in Bengazi ?

 

 Hey you forgot to close the door behind you...

Real people? lol For anyone to take you seriously we would have to believe you are either; 1. An avid embassy employee advocate OR 2. Just ANOTHER troll, lying in the weeds, waiting for any chance to say something negative about Hilary Clinton. Take your pick, choice 1. isn't real.

This just in at FOX news; Hilary Clinton FINALLY admits to being in Benghazi during the attacks. She was actually in bed with the embassador and used his naked body as a shield. When she saw her chance for escape she threw on her berka and slid out the side door with the other working girls. She only suffered a slight brain injury (which she used medical marijuana to make a full recovery from).

Rest....shut your pie hole okay?  Stop jumping on me. If you don't like what I post don't read it. Got a problem with me,take it to the  PMs.  :lol:

When people start not caring about ridiculously wrong info posted on a web site, that web site is near death. Nice to breath a little life into this one on occasion don't you think? One day I will shut my pie hole and curl up and die. Not yet though. There's plenty of life left here.

Maybe this isn't about Hillary at all. How about some accountability from paid Government Officials? How about putting women in as State Actors like M.Leonhart? Who have an agenda but no accountability? It isn't really a partisan thing either. Its really just about their agenda.

Maybe? Then why did you mention Benghazi like a blooming idiot? It's going to be hard to segway out of that. You can try though.

Simple answer; Eat right and exercise and you will be able to pay attention. Don't let hate cloud your vision. If your motives are clear and clean they will guide you on a straight course to your goals. (Humor>>>) Be a simple man (great tune). LOL

Resto,

 

I respectfully disagree with any characterization that Ruth Marcus isn't a liberal.

 

I also disagree that the expert quoted in her opinion column doesn't reflect at least Marcus' views of marijuana.

 

I again ask anyone who is willing to consider other views than their own to read Marcus' column and explain why it shouldn't be considered a liberal's view of marijuana given her record as an opinion columnist.

 

It is pretty easy to dismiss any views other than your own. It is harder to avoid considering the economic implications of our current federal budget when looking to the long-term success of our country.

 

There was a simple question asked in prior elections; is our country better of now than six years ago?

 

Maybe it is, maybe not. Given the national debt has doubled one could wonder what would have happened if instead of 'saving' the banks and creating a massive shift in wealth to those who have stock market investments; what would have happened if the Feds had simply sent checks for $30,000 to every American citizen instead.

 

That is a discussion worth having. But neither the Dems or Repubs seem interested in discussion.

 

The other question no one seems to ask is what are the long-term implications of our current social policies.

 

Consider human influenced climate change. There is only one sure way to reduce human influence and that is to reduce the number of humans. No one seems interested in that.

 

Instead we have a government that seems only interested in becoming as large as possible in my view.

 

The republicans and democrats are like cats. From the sounds they make you can't tell if they are fighting or making love. But in the end, they both seem resolved to one common act of bipartisanship. The Democrats social policies are designed to create as many possible customers for the Republican arrest and punishment industry.

 

Regardless whether one thinks Obama is a saint of a devil, anyone with a longer-term outlook must realize the current Federal monetary and social policies if sustained won't turn out well for our children and their children.

It was all Dr. Volkow. Did you even watch it? It was totally off base with the reality of cannabis users. It was a book worm talking out her back side about things she totally does not understand. You see that a lot with doctors that think they know everything about everything because they have large IQs. A large IQ will only get you so far if your nose is always in a book and you don't study actual people. That's the meat and potatoes of the piece you posted. I'm not sure how your twist of it fits your political agenda. That I can't quite get and don't really care about. What's important is the blantant ignorance of the doctor the whole piece was about. To post that piece should be very painful to anyone who knows cannabis. Watch the video of that ignorant doctor to see the ugliness of cannabis ignorance. It's really painful to someone who pays attention to cannabis people.

      Washington and Colorado -- The first two states to legalize recreational marijuana have collectively raked in at least $200 million in marijuana tax revenue, according to the latest tax data -- and they're putting those dollars to good use.
       
      In Colorado, after about a year and a half of legal recreational marijuana sales, the state has collected more than $117 million in excise taxes from both the recreational and medical marijuana markets, according to the most recent data from the Colorado Department of Revenue.

      Washington, D.C. -- Even as support for ending marijuana prohibition is building around the country, Congress and the Obama administration remain far too timid about the need for change.
       
      Last year, residents in Alaska, Oregon and the District of Columbia voted to join Colorado and Washington State in making recreational use of marijuana legal. Later this year, residents of Ohio are expected to vote on a ballot measure that would legalize it. Nevadans will vote on a legalization proposal next year. And Californians could vote on several similar measures next year.

      USA -- In the past few years, the U.S. has been steadily growing support for marijuana reform. From the presidential candidates to the general public, this progressive attitude has become a hot topic for debate, and as an election year approaches, everyone—from governors to legislators to those who would be president—seems to have an opinion on the issue.

      USA -- The war on drugs is over, and weed won. D.A.R.E., the organization designed to plant a deep-seated fear of drugs in the minds of every late-20th-century middle schooler, published an op-ed calling for marijuana legalization.
       
      Written by former deputy sheriff Carlis McDerment in response to a letter in the Columbus Dispatch, the op-ed explains that it's impossible for law enforcement to control the sale of marijuana to minors. "People like me, and other advocates of marijuana legalization, are not totally blind to the harms that drugs pose to children," McDerment writes. "We just happen to know that legalizing and regulating marijuana will actually make everyone safer."

      Washington, D.C. -- In its bid to fend off congressional interference with a pending marijuana decriminalization law, the District might have prompted President Obama to make an interesting declaration.
       
      The White House on Monday said it “strongly opposes” the amendment attached last month to the House spending bill that includes the D.C. budget. The amendment, offered by Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.), would bar the District government from spending any money on provisions that weaken its drug laws.

      The Harris Amendment, the Obama administration says, “undermines the principles of States’ rights and of District home rule” — which, setting aside the fact that the District is not a state, explicitly suggests that the White House believes marijuana policy should be left to individual jurisdictions.
       
      The Drug Policy Alliance, a national advocacy group, called that a “groundbreaking policy position” in a news release. “It is great to see the White House accepting that a majority of Americans want marijuana law reform and defending the right of D.C. and states to set their own marijuana policy,” said Bill Piper, the group’s director of national affairs. “The tide has clearly shifted against the failed war on drugs and it’s only a matter of time before federal law is changed.”
       
      The administration statement is not a total surprise: It is in keeping, for instance, with the Justice Department’s express hands-off policy toward local marijuana liberalization efforts across the country, and Obama has made comments tolerating the legalization laws in Colorado and Washington as “experiments.” But framing the debate as a matter of “states’ rights” could have an effect on the national debate over cannabis laws.
       
      What may be of greater interest on the local level is that the White House statement also appears to endorse concerns that the Harris Amendment may have inadvertently legalized marijuana, saying the budget rider “poses legal challenges to the Metropolitan Police Department’s enforcement of all marijuana laws currently in force in the District.”
       
      The D.C. decriminalization law is set to pass through a congressional review period and take effect later this week. Should the Harris Amendment subsequently become law, police could be barred from enforcing the new law, which makes small-time marijuana possession punishable by a $25 civil citation, without having a local criminal statute left to enforce. City lawyers were tasked with examining the possible effects of the amendment, officials said last month, but the results of any review have not been released.
       
      The White House statement on the spending bill, which is now on the House floor, also includes opposition to restriction on local funding for abortions, the ban on federal funding for needle exchange, and cuts to the District’s college tuition grant program.
       
      If the House passes the budget bill as expected, its inclusion in any spending law would be subject to negotiation with Democrats, and Obama’s opposition could be helpful in that process. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) called it “indispensable” in a Monday statement. But it is hardly a magic bullet: In a high-stakes 2011 budget negotiation, Obama famously traded away the District’s ability to spend locally raised tax funds on abortion in talks with House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio).
