AG Holder Says Yes To Cannabis!
Last comment by TommyMarin 3 months, 4 weeks ago.

Take Me To Post Comment Form


Attorney General Eric Holder has finally released his response to last November's legalization of recreational cannabis in Colorado and Washington State. The Department of Justice will allow the laws regulating the production, sales, and use of cannabis to go forward not only in those two states but for medical cannabis as well in the 20 states that have laws on the books. The feds have decided to take the approach of "show me what you've got" and if the states can make it work will stay out of their hair. AG Holder warns however that the DOJ reserves the right to sue in federal court at any point in the future should the state drop the ball and things get out of control. His primary concerns are sales to minors, cartel involvement, and the exportation out of state of in state grown cannabis. If these issues can be successfully dealt with Holder has promised the states the DOJ will honor the states will.

I don't trust them. They're up to something. Consider;
1) By federal law marijuana related businesses can not use banks. No checks, no debit cards, no credit cards, not even money orders. Cash only.
2) Marijuana is going to be a very cash intensive enterprise at every level. Background checks, license application fees, security costs, testing, insurance, taxes, taxes, and more taxes.
3) The feds have just announced new rules forbidding armored car firms from serving the marijuana industry.
http://www.csindy.com/IndyBlog/archiv...
4) One of Holder's stated criteria is no increase in violence, especially gun related violence.

Isn't that handy? By requiring the marijuana industry, a multimillion dollar enterprise in even the smallest of states to go cash only they guarantee $100k's of dollars neatly stacked in multiple locations and by banning armored car services they make sure that cash is being moved in a passenger vehicle with no protection. Why don't they just paint a huge bulls eye the cars, shops, and employees while they're at it?
This behavior ensures violent armed robberies. And I'm sure they will scream bloody murder should the shop owner defend himself with a firearm even though that wouldn't raise so much as an eyebrow if it were a liqueur store.
Could it be the feds are trying to initiate a chain of tragic events just so they can say "I told you so"?

Looking specifically at California, where full marijuana decriminalization went into effect on Jan. 1, 2011, the report finds that "marijuana decriminalization in California has not resulted in harmful consequences for teenagers, such as increased crime, drug overdose, driving under the influence, or school dropout.

Supposedly Neutral Federal Report Stacks The Deck Against Marijuana Legalization

"In 2012 Coloradans approved Amendment 64, which legalized marijuana for recreational use, by a vote of 55 percent to 45 percent. Last February a Quinnipiac University poll found that 58 percent of Colorado voters supported that decision, while 38 percent opposed it and the rest weren’t sure.

For prohibitionists determined to portray marijuana legalization in Colorado as a disaster, those poll results are inconvenient, since they indicate that public support for Amendment 64 was higher after more than a year of legal recreational sales and more than two years of legal possession and home cultivation than it was in 2012. Honest drug warriors would acknowledge the Quinnipiac numbers and perhaps try to balance them with other poll results. Dishonest drug warriors would do what the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (RMHIDTA) does in its new report on marijuana legalization: change the numbers."
