Definitive Proof That Eric Holder Lied to Congress About Obama's Medical Marijuana Crackdown

Last edited Sun Jun 17, 2012, 02:59 PM USA/ET - Edit history (1)

Attorney General Eric Holder told the House Judiciary Committee last week that his department was not prosecuting medical marijuana businesses that are in compliance with state law. In the week since, drug reform advocates have culled together an overwhelming amount of evidence that Holder either lied to the committee, or—as seems to have been the case with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearm's "Operation Fast and Furious"—is oblivious to what his department is doing outside Washington, D.C.

"One has to deal with the reality that there are certain people who took advantage of the state law and a different policy that this administration announced...and have come up with ways they are tkaing advantage of those state laws and going beyond what those states have authorized," Holder said.

Steph Sherer of Americans for Safe Access called Holder out last week. Now here's Eric Sterling pointing out that the DOJ has threatened to prosecute state employees who comply with their states' marijuana laws.

4. Eric Holder is probably the worst cabinet appointment Obama has made

Although Fast and Furious was not his idea he has botched the whole program.

And his performance when it comes to medical marijuana is appalling.

But if some of these asshole republicans are screaming for him to resign and threatening endless investigations,

Then I am 100% in Mr Holder's corner.

Unfortunately the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

DU seems to be losing control over the peasants. It must be noted that some DUmmies are more militant about their weed than their politics.

The crackdown in Michigan on the Medical Marijuana has the blessings of Holder and the Obama administration, but is basically being conducted by the State's Attorney General, Bill Schute, who is a republican.


It's not as if anyone is having trouble getting hold of marijuana, though, whether it's medicinal or recreational. The Detroit Police recently announced that they are not pursuing misdemeanor marijuana possession cases, although the reality is, they have not really done so for a long time.
