Doobie, Doobie Do? Obama Calls off the Federal Pot Patrol!

This should make President Obama’s approval ratings hippity hop.

According to GOOD, Obama has done something VERY CONSERVATIVE. He has called off the Federal marijuana dogs from interfering with state weed laws.

States’ rights, right? Individual libertarian liberty?

I’m waiting for the high praises of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Hugh Hewitt, and National Review Online. I’m sure they’ll make a big deal out of this, and give Obama his due for this restriction on Federal power and expansion of human liberty.

Are those crickets I hear?

Money quote:

Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the federal government will no longer spend its money authorizing (and conducting) raids and arrests of people and institutions licensed at the state level to produce and distribute medicinal marijuana. Said a spokesperson: “The president believes that federal resources should not be used to circumvent state laws.”
