    Link: Drug Raids Go Hollywood, Obama Admin Break Promise - As the Feds raid LA pot dispensaries yesterday, Obama breaks another promise. C`mon, Barry!

    Yes, I`m sure Obama personally sent those agents. Because he has nothing better to do.

    I think something else was going on there. I mean they only targeted TWO places. Out of how many??? I doubt it was for the Medical Pot they were dealing with. Cause if that was the case - they would have had quite a few more raids just to avoid people closing up shop and running.

    Hmmm... So the promise was not to use federal resources to CIRCUMVENT STATE LAW. There were sheriff`s department officials there as well. It is unknown why they were raided.
    Hypothesis: These places were breaking state law and the locals worked with the feds to shut them down. Just because medical marijuana is legal and can be taxed doesn`t mean that these places were operating in a legal manner.
    There is so little detail given here. Nothing at all is clear - least of all that the Obama administration broke this particular promise. Plenty of others, but the jury is still out here.

    Look. The video didn`t touch on WHY the place was raided. Maybe they were selling to people without a license. Maybe they weren`t paying taxes.

    They could very well have broken local laws, and the DEA was brought in to help enforce those laws. We don`t know that the feds were "circumventing local laws."

    So, please. Think and question before you get angry.

    So, just because you don`t know why they are being raided, you assume that Obama lied, and is directly behind this? Is it possible that these two places were dealing more than medical, and that`s why they were targeted? i think it is.

    incubus inc,
    Prohibition lasted 14 years. Marijuana has been illegal since 1927. Your argument is invalid.

    Wonder what these guys did to get raided. As Aadya said, it seems unlikely that they would raid just two of the places in all of cali.

    @number43, actually that is a completely valid argument. Anyone with a brain can see that marijuana prohibition is not only ineffective, but it`s a waste of time, money and resources, and it breeds crime.

    @Rick_S- then the state and local police alone could have handled it. There was NO reason for the Feds to get involved.

    It`s looking less and less likely that I`ll be voting for Obama in 2012. If there isn`t a halfway decent third party candidate, I`ll be writing in my cat.

    @nubblins- as head of the executive branch, he is responsible for the actions of the federal agents involved in the case. And if he DOESN`T support their actions, he has every right to condemn what they did, and ask Holder to drop the Federal charges.

    And when we find out why they singled out these guys, you`ll know why he didn`t condemn them. As others already pointed out, seeing as the vid doesn`t explain why they were in trouble, we can`t draw conclusions that no federal laws were broken.

    Since they didn`t go after every medical marijuana dispensary, I`ll assume that they were dealing more than marijuana or dealing without prescriptions. Due to federal involvement, it is probably the former. If that is the case, then it is evidence that marijuana legalization would not lead to less crime and less dealing in more harmful drugs, it would just give those who do deal in those areas a good cover operation. The same effect was seen with organized crime after the repeal of prohibition.

    sbeelz-"if he DOESN`T support their actions, he has every right to condemn what they did, and ask Holder to drop the Federal charges."

    Obama can`t make a decision on that (or anything else) that until he determines the race of those being charge. If they are white, the charges will stand. If they are black, the police acted stupidly.

    Now watch the conservatives all go off half-cocked without any background or facts.

    You know, like they always do.

    For all you know, it could have been a crack den in a bad neighborhood, using the "medical marijuana" as a cover-up. I mean, it`s not like this video actually "reported" anything, it just threw out bias and half-truths meant to sway people.

    But, of course, the devil is in the details you never like to check, huh?

    I don`t think it`s conservatives that are upset that the raid happened. But more to the point, why does everyone insist on having every event directly tied to the "evil motives of those other guys" regardless of which side you`re on? Seems to me that in this case, law enforcement did their jobs, now the courts will do theirs, and hopefully the outcome will be fair and within the law. After all, aren`t all Americans in favor of The Rule of Law??

    @zombunny,
    Again...
    FACT: Prohibition in the United States lasted 14 years before being overturned
    FACT: Marijuana has been illegal in all U.S. States since 1927 (just shy of 90 years, 7x longer than prohibition).
    FACT: Literally hundreds of attempts to decriminalize marijuana and outright legalize marijuana have been made, most notably the recent California Prop 19. All have failed.
    LOGICAL CONCLUSION: The American people and government view marijuana as a more serious threat to public safety than alcohol.
    STATEMENT OF OPINION: The prohibition of alcohol in America is not similar, nor has it followed the same path as the criminalization of marijuana possession/production.
    FURTHERMORE: If your argument lies on the fact the the MINORITY of people want marijuana legalized, then by the same logic you should support lowering the age of consent for statutory rape, or legalizing DUI.

    Number43, just because marijuana hasnt followed the same path as alcohol, doesnt mean it doesnt warrant legalization. Politicians are just now slowly able to have a discussion on the drug because for so long it has been politically such a risky thing to stand up for.
    There has not been a open dialogue that helps educate the public to make truly informed decisions or opinions on the matter. The arguement against its legalization is full of misperceptions and very weak when compared with alcohol for example or tobacco even. so just because there may be a majority opposed, doesnt mean it isnt justified to legalize it. we need to decriminalize it for innumerable reasons.

    True. The question is does the Federal Gov`ment have the right to make such a law. States Rights and all that.

    States are supposed to rule themselves. The Feds were never meant to rule over us, like England.

    The same effect was seen with organized crime after the repeal of prohibition.
    @Volsunga, are you high? After prohibition was repealed, the mobsters were basically out of business. Oh sure they went back to their previous crimes, but the HUGE MONEY they made from booze evaporated within a year.
    Ditto for `drug lords`. Once it`s legalized, tobacco companies will POUNCE on this vast revenue source. Legal pot will be just as cheap and easy to get as booze. Oh sure, lots of folks will just grow their own, what`s the harm in that?

    @Zombunny: When the Democrat house failed to pass "cap and trade" (which would GUT the American economy, eh?) Obma tried to authorize the EPA to have those same powers. Happily the courts over ruled this.
    However the White House is currently ignoring a court order to open up oil rig liscences - yet Obama crows about how he`s increased oil production. He`s been smoking pot I think...

    For all you know, it could have been a crack den
    Then why, @Altaru, did it require a FEDERAL warrent? Couldn`t local cops get a warrent for a crack den? Keep spinning tho, you`ll fall over soon enough.

    Thanks @Gerry1of1 for pointing out the obvious to those dullards: There`s areas where the Feds are in charge, and other areas where the States are. One is not supposed to tred on the other`s terf, eh?

    And they don`t NEED TO go after "all the dope sellers" that wouldn`t be cost-effective. They only need to pin the rap on a couple of them, and the rest will go back underground again.
    Face the Facts: even if the people vote FOR pro-dope laws, the Feds won`t allow it.

    Love it when people jump into a conversation thats already going on like they know what it`s about. To whoever said there needs to be an open discussion: have you seen netflix`s documentary section?!? Every other video is on marijuana and ending the drug war. Furthermore that list of states is a list of states that approve marijuana for medical use, NOT outright legalization, but good misinformation tactic. Im not even putting forth my own opinion here, im pointing out that none of you have made a legitamate argument for it`s legalization. If you want to repeal a law thats older than your grandmothers (and survived the 60`s) youre going to need a better reason than "jus cuz!"

    "Did you sleep through your American government classes in school?"

    No,he`s more right than you are. Our government is in no way supposed to "rule" us.

    Then why, @Altaru, did it require a FEDERAL warrent? Couldn`t local cops get a warrent for a crack den?
    Unless you can point out where you`ve read multiple other accounts of what transpired, including what the warrants were signed for, what charges are being presented against the arrested party, etc., my point is that you`re going on THIS VIDEO.

    THIS VIDEO has the fact that federal raids were launched. That`s it. It doesn`t state why, it doesn`t state what the charges are, etc.

    But, like a moron, you`re basing everything on THIS VIDEO.

    You`re just another biased, judgmental dumbass. It`s people like you I wouldn`t want to see on a jury because you`re willing to base your opinions on minimal facts and personal bias.

    Perhaps that`s because there is a changing opinion on the matter. They didn`t have Netflix or for that matter Blockbuster back in the 20s,

    Keep spinning tho, you`ll fall over soon enough.
    And how am I spinning anything?

    If ANYONE is spinning here, it`s the person who made the video.

    He presented no details of the case, he`s not able to see the warrants as they are under seal at this time...

    But of course, because he wanted to outrage you easily swayed idiots, he presented the story as a Federal raid on a perfectly State-legal business.

    He presents no proof to back it up, because he has none. I`d say that`s spin.

    Just another piece of the puzzle in the decline of journalistic integrity that is running rampant.

    Of course, you probably watch Fox "news," the only "news" station that`s gone to court for their right to lie to their viewers, so you`re so used to it you don`t even notice it anymore, huh?

    Look, I don`t like the man either, but have you ever stopped to consider that sometimes, just sometimes, human beings are to blame rather than the government?

    The entire government system is f*cked up, yes, and broken promises from the assh*le-in-chief galore, but there is the rare occasion when they AREN`T the ones in the wrong.

    And unless you have the facts, ALL OF THEM, you can`t make that judgement.

    Cajun247 - "Perhaps that`s because there is a changing opinion on the matter. They didn`t have Netflix or for that matter Blockbuster back in the 20s, "
    They also didn`t have any alcohol thanks to federal laws banning it.

    To me, it doesn`t look like we learned very much since then.

    Interesting point Altaru - even if you`re totally wrong, we need more skepticism like that out there. Didn`t even occur to me because it`s so par for the course these days.

    I`m not pro-pot. I don`t smoke it and never have. But I have been on percoset for 6 months after botched operation. It sucks. Yeah, it relieves the pain, but functioning on opiates is difficult.

    If I ever end up with cancer (likely), or lose a limb, I would be very interested in trying out marijuana as a substitute, based on the testimonies I`ve read and heard from people who are in that position, and what I know about how debilitating the stuff I`ve been on before is.

    I just don`t understand how we have drated up pot`s rep so bad that it can`t be considered as a legit painkiller. Between both the fears of the anti-pot people and the outright misrepresentation spread by the pro-pot people, we may never have an honest representation of the drug`s real uses and drawbacks.

    the armchair political pundits that we are, do you sincerely believe that pot is going to be legalized, like EVER? It`s not, so lets stop bitching, and carry on.

    @nubblins- as head of the executive branch, he is responsible for the actions of the federal agents involved in the case. And if he DOESN`T support their actions, he has every right to condemn what they did, and ask Holder to drop the Federal charges.
