Obama misleads about marijuana, claims it’s “Congress’s job”
Misleading the American public in various ways about marijuana is nothing new for the Federal Government, and unfortunately both parties are partners in crime. Whether it’s classifying the “drug” in the same class as hard-core drugs or just flat out ignoring and distorting medical facts, the marijuana movement still has a ways to go before legalization at the federal level.
Unfortunately, Obama continued the trend of lies or “misleads”, if you want to be “politically correct”. When asked about who has the power to change the schedule or “classification” of marijuana, Obama claimed it is the “job for Congress”. The unfortunate truth is that his own Attorney General admitted that was not the case.
When asked if Obama “mislead” with his statement, Attorney General Eric Holder said, “That’s right”. Sound like change to me.
Don’t take my word for it. Check out the official documents below so that no politician can get away with misleading us, Republican or Democrat.
