Barack Obama opens up on medical marijuana | The NORML Stash Blog

I am the producer of The NORML Network, the host of the NORML SHOW LIVE and The NORML Stash Blog, and NORML's Outreach Coordinator. I'm married, live in Portland, Oregon, and I am a registered medical marijuana caregiver in this state. I've worked days as an IT geek and nights as a professional musician. Previously, I have been the host of my own political talk radio show on satellite radio. I've been the High Times "Freedom Fighter of the Month" and I travel across the country to educate people on marijuana reform. I've dedicated my life to bringing an end to adult marijuana prohibition and re-legalizing cannabis hemp, and I'm honored to be chosen by NORML to give voice to the Marijuana Nation and to speak for those who can't speak up.

  44. Pat Riot

    Harry Anslinger, was almost singlehandedly responsible for outlawing marijuana. Admitting in private it was harmless, he wanted to create a powerful tool to control “deviant minorities.” Our for-profit prison system continues that work.

  45. Robert Vetter

    God has a funny sense of humor. I think that all of our elected officials, when they stand before the halls of Heaven will have to be questioned by our founding fathers concerning all the damage that the war on drugs has done to Millions of families over the last 72 years. Would it be outrageous if our elected officials were told by the founding Fathers that they would have to first serve 72 years in American Prisons before they can be admitted to Heaven, and while they are in this state of anxiety. Heaven will be playing over the audio speakers their laughs of derision until they agree to their sentence. Law makers listen! This present Hell that you have sentenced the American People will have to be answered for. I just wanted to offer some bubble gum for your brains. Enjoy the laughs Legislaters , soon the laugh will be on you!!!!!

    I’ll take half a loaf on Medical Marijuana issue with Barrack Obama any day than the full on war that John McCain wants to wage on patients and providers. And cudos to Barrack for being honest in saying that he wouldn’t “use alot of political capitol” to ram the issue through. No candidate would do that and any of them that told you that they would is LYING to you! Change is incremental, and I’ll take a President that WILL (and he has said as much SEVERAL TIMES) end the raids of the DEA on patients any day over a candidate that will NEVER get elected telling me exactly what I want to hear.

    RE:fix- Mike would get my vote…not voteing so befor you call me a contridictive liar take not I fixed my oppositional statement on him..Ty

  48. Kevin

    He’s a snake,he knows his political carrer is on the line along with history so he says a few remarks to be “nice” and he means what he says about it not being a priority,so dont vote on basis of marijuana…vote on basis of change…me,Im not voting cuz their all the same,say one thing then when they get in office its all about the dollar and not the constitution…our rights are being auctioned off, $1.00 at a time….Mike Gravel will get my vote even though he wont ever be president,one he’s to old and 2,well the media dont care about some one that wont say what they want to hear…so they leave him and others out of the race..either way our country is doomed,but with Obama there may still be a chance later down the road for justice reform,not knocking him,if I voted it would be hard not to vote for him but,politics will only get worse,ever since 1932 and counting.
