On November 6, the people of Colorado and Washington State passed ballot measures to make the possession of marijuana legal for all adults and to regulate the sale of marijuana in a manner similar to alcohol.
Sadly, on Dec. 7, the New York Times reported that top-level officials in the Obama administration are conspiring to undermine these historic victories.
Worse, an article published on the same day in Rolling Stone indicated that a ringleader for this anti-marijuana activity is Vice President Joe Biden. A former top White House drug policy advisor was quoted in the article saying, “As long as [Biden] is vice president, we're very far off from legalization being a reality.”
This is wrong. Mr. Biden should end his war on marijuana users and respect the voters of CO and WA.
