Will Tom Spank Obama?

Will Tom Over-ride Obama on Cannabis?

Knowing how strongly Tom McClintock feels about personal liberty, and how strongly he feels that President Obama is a poor leader, we’ll be interested to see how he responds to this opportunity to spank Obama.

The Drug Policy Network is asking rebel freedom fighters like Tom to support a bill to do what Obama said he would, but now won’t: stop harassing the states over compassionate use laws. The appeal from DPN is below.

Go, Tom, fight for personal liberty, fight to keep big government out of our lives, fight to make Obama live up to his promise.

We’ll see how well Tom does.

Here’s the appeal:

Barack Obama has indicated his administration would respect California Voters

Please co-sponsor H.R. 2835, the Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act. This bill would protect medical marijuana patients from federal prosecution in states where the voters or the state legislature have approved medical marijuana laws.

H.R. 2835 would return autonomy over medical marijuana policy to the states; the legislation also reschedules marijuana from Schedule I to Schedule II. Despite solid evidence that marijuana has established medical value, marijuana is scheduled as a Schedule I drug with a high potential for abuse and no medical value. Rescheduling marijuana to Schedule II would be an appropriate step towards validating the medical value of marijuana.

Medical marijuana is an indispensable medicine that helps mitigate chronic pain and stimulates appetite. Patients suffering from cancer, AIDS and other forms of disease greatly benefit from access to marijuana, and Americans know this. In poll after poll, majorities of the public across the political spectrum support allowing access to medical marijuana with a doctor's recommendation. However, despite President Obama's pledge to stop Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) raids on medical marijuana dispensaries, the DEA has continued to waste taxpayers' money and scarce law enforcement resources to raid dispensaries in states where medical marijuana is legal. The DEA is undermining the right of states to determine their own medical marijuana policy.

Patients, friends and family members across America are counting on you to cosponsor H.R. 2835. I encourage you to take the time to read it, and then support it.
