While it seems unlikely that the federal government will make much of an effort to arrest pot users in Colorado or Washington — President Obama has said he has “bigger fish to fry” — the tension between federal and state laws on marijuana remains. Just last week, an appeals court rejected a suit that sought to lower the drug classification of medical marijuana under federal drug laws.
I don’t understand why this failed. Comparing marijuana to other drugs in that classification are very unfair and unbalanced when you do any amount of research about the other drugs on the list. It’s stupid because it’s anti-science and we’re smarter than this as a nation.
