Submission + - Marijuana Prosecution Not a High Priority Says Obama

Hugh Pickens writes writes: "VOA reports that President Obama says it does not make sense for federal authorities to seek prosecution of recreational marijuana users in states where such use is legal. "As it is, you know, the federal government has a lot to do when it comes to criminal prosecutions," said Obama during a television interview with ABC's Barbara Walters . "It does not make sense from a prioritization point of view for us to focus on recreational drug users in a state that has already said that, under state law, that's legal." When asked if he supported legalizing marijuana, the president said he was not endorsing that. ""I wouldn't go that far, but what I think is that, at this point, Washington and Colorado, you've seen the voters speak on this issue.""
