74 Percent Of Americans Want End to Medical Marijuana Raids

Writes Eric W. Dolan on RAW Story:

Nearly three out of four Americans believe that the federal government should respect state laws regarding medical marijuana and halt raids on dispensaries, according to a poll released.

“These results are consistent with the clear and growing body of evidence that documents substantial voter support for the legalization of medical marijuana,” said Larry Harris, a principal with Mason-Dixon Polling & Research.

The polling agency found that 74 percent of Americans believed the federal government should respect states’ medical marijuana laws. Support for medical marijuana laws was highest among Independents, at 79 percent, and lowest among Republicans, at 67 percent. Younger age groups were more likely to think the federal government should respect medical marijuana laws than older age groups…

    The polling agency found that 74 percent of Americans believed the federal government should respect states’ medical marijuana laws

    Or the federal government could, I don’t know, pass laws legalising it—at the very least for medicinal purposes. 

    When Republicans are polling at 67% support for such a thing, it’s time to end the nonsense.

      Yeah, don’t expect Romney to do such a thing: because, historically, Mormons are responsible for the original anti-marijuana laws. You can read more about that from “The Forbidden Fruit
      and the Tree of Knowledge.”

        I’ve worked with Mormons that displayed a sickening condescension towards those who merely drank coffee…and the icy formality of fake congeniality reserved for drinkers had a rather saccharine SS quality to it.

         Thanks for the info DeepCough.
        Have read before of the the connectyon between the “tree of knowledge” and Cannabys. Cannabys yz the phylosophers stone imo.

        • DeepCough

          Actually, that’s a mistranslation: the Cannabis wasn’t the “philosopher’s stone,”
          it was to get the “philosophers stoned.”

    • TruthVybes

       Problem wyth the gov. legalyzyng such a sacred herb gyves way for mass productyon whych means unorganyc methods of growyng Cannabys (growth sprays and whatnot). Gov would turn MJ ynto a mass market imo. On the other hand, we’d get MJ dealers off the streets. Though growyng your own’s always an optyon unless the gov. comes up wyth a law (not surprysyng) agaynst cultyvatyon.

    Since when does anything the majority of Americans think translate into law?

    In fact
    history shows that most actions of the Fed.Gov
    especially its wars
    are against the will of the majority.

    This is probably a good example of why we need to get the word out about Jury Nullification.

    They’d be more apt to give up this nonsense if they could never get a conviction.

    The feds need to legalize Freedom period.

    As usual the fascist power-hungry leeches in our federal tyranny have left a couple openings that the resistance could drive a truck through. This is one more undeniable federal over-step of the 10th Amendment. And what a great opportunity to unite the states’-rights conservatives and the hedonistic pot smokers, eh? Which is what seems to be happening.

    There would be no need to “legalise” cannabis if they merely over-turned the racist deception and corporate BS propaganda Marijuana Tax Act and returned the plant to its previous status of production crop and medicinal additive. Simple as that!
    No need to make new laws, just over-turn bad ones!
