Legalizing Medical Marijuana
President Obama Supports Pot-Smoking Patients

{SummaryTitle}

In a major move forward in recognizing the medical legitimacy of marijuana, new guidelines that will be issued by the Obama administration today will free pot-smoking patients, in states that allow medical marijuana use from the fear of getting busted by Federal drug agents.

This will promote legitimate scientific study of cannabis and provide patients suffering from cancer and other debilitating diseases a sense of relief from the possibility of arrest and Federal charges. It also reverses decades of stigmatization of marijuana by the Federal government enforced by the DEA. In California, this action will likely significantly strengthen existing initiatives to legalize and tax cannabis.
