Marijuana Issue May Be A Stumbling Block For Obama Reelection

Staff CMM - Tuesday, July 17, 2012
As the subject of medical marijuana in Colorado gains momentum, political figures are finding it more difficult to walk both sides of the fence and are being forced to choose a platform of either being pro medical marijuana or being against it and risk losing votes either way. President Obama is finding his stance on the subject particularly precarious as he is forced to comply with federal laws and back them without compromise. Although the state of Colorado has passed a law making medical marijuana possession legal, marijuana is still considered an illegal substance, punishable under federal laws. President Obama had made an earlier statement on the subject, saying they were not going to prioritize prosecutions of people using the drug. However, this statement preceded action by the U.S. District Attorney’s office to shut down 47 dispensaries in the state of Colorado. Some believe this goes against what President Obama promised in the beginning and these actions may hurt his chances for obtaining votes in the state.
