In recent times, the Obama government has taken a strange position for the U.S. rights. Thanks to a memo from the Inter-David W. Ogden, US Deputy Attorney General, the White House seems to have changed the position of medical marijuana from the federal government. Ogden argues that the prosecutor’s office of the United States will not pursue prosecution of producers, sellers and patients as they comply with state rules and laws that have medical marijuana cards and licenses of certified medical marijuana doctors at legal cannabis clinics. Although the causes of the President to take this position is not clear, this can be a huge victory for the perfect lawyers in America.
Because the approval of medical marijuana laws in California, the Law on the compassionate use of 1996, the State was in a fierce battle with the federal government. This is a typical example of the rights of the state. Many vendors and producers, there is a “moral” link in the chain rule, as well as the patients went to the razor blade. Federal prosecutors expands on them, leading to the same concerns as someone who is about to throw 150 feet to an end – with one condition, which is like a safety net. Currently supports sixteen states to legalize medical marijuana. They include Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, DC, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, New jersy, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington. These Sixteen states, the FBI and the DEA will get memos asking them to release their quest in the pursuit of medical marijuana patients, providers and producers and increase efforts to prosecute crimes, including illegal sales of weapons, violence, selling to minors, washing money green, and many other drug-related crimes. Although the rules are in the books, the change in law enforcement.
Regardless of the position of his medical marijuana, advocates of states to support the White House on this issue. It is not only on the states of the struggle for the regulation of medical marijuana with the federal government. There are other circumstances in the same unit, containg but not limited to euthanasia, capital punishment, gay marriage. In all these cases, the federal government was there to intervene with legislation, which in many cases displace the laws of the United States. To all forms the position of medical marijuana in the White House can be a huge victory for states rights, but we do not see with time. Many federal agencies will still be able to continue the federal rules and the prosecution of people who use, grow or sell marijuana. Recently, it is up to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court supported the federal government in Gonzales vs. Raich case in 2005. It is not clear whether the Supreme Court now considers the same way.
The only true victory would be if a law was passed that would allow local and state governments to oust the federal law on the issue of medical marijuana. This may open a new set of rules allows medicinal marijuana states to be fully prepared to take their personal constitutions, rather than the federal government. If there are cities in America that do not consume alcohol, so why not act in a situation to work the other way?
The central administration should maintain working to find common ground, where the rights of medicinal marijuana states that dominate without unconverted with the occasional use of the United States considered a hero. Until laws are enacted to protect these rights, the CC class of leaders to replace the authority and power in individual states, where each clinic and fights for the rights of marijuana to treat people.
