Pot Politics

Pot Politics

File - In this May 5, 2011, shows a unidentified man smoking medical marijuana during karaoke night at the Cannabis Café, in Portland, Ore. Medical marijuana advocates have a message for Democratic leaders and federal prosecutors with an eye on political office: Don’t mess with pot. Pushing back against the Obama administration’s crackdown on state medical marijuana programs, one of the nation’s largest pro-pot groups is claiming credit for the defeat of a former federal prosecutor in the Democratic primary for Oregon attorney general. As interim U.S. attorney, Dwight Holton called Oregon’s medical marijuana law a “train wreck” and oversaw efforts to crack down on pot shops and marijuana gardens that claim to be operating under the state law.
