USA. Obama won't stop legalisation of weed at state level




Comments from US President Obama in a recent interview confirms he is happy to see more US states join the growing list of places which have legalized cannabis for medical and recreational use.  When asked about the issue in a recent video interview Obama could have chosen to distance himself from the topic of cannabis, or he could have directly opposed it.  Instead Obama said "My suspicion is that you’re gonna see other states start looking at this.”  And to further clarify his position and that of the Federal Government, the President added "The position of my administration has been that we still have federal laws that classify marijuana as an illegal substance, but we’re not going to spend a lot of resources trying to turn back decisions that have been made at the state level on this issue.
Meanwhile cannabis educators and activists continue to work hard at state level to legalize cannabis, and with around half the USA already enjoying legal cannabis it seems that Americas ‘War on Weed’ is sliding slowly to a peaceful ending.
