San Diego halts all actions against marijuana dispensaries

Source: Los Angeles Times

At the order of newly elected Mayor Bob Filner, the city is dropping all legal efforts aimed at forcing marijuana dispensaries out of business.

Filner, a Democrat, also plans to revisit an issue the City Council has shown little eagerness to tackle: the creation of zoning rules to permit marijuana businesses.

... "I believe that, in order to be a great city, we must also be a humane city and show compassion toward those who need help in dealing with chronic pain," he said.

7. good luck with that....

Obama hasn't shown himself to be as good as his word on this issue. I don't think he or his administration takes any liberalization of their policies on Marijuana seriously. There are too many special interests with big money in the War on drugs to see any changes in Washington DC. Local and state governments will lead the way without the help of the feds.

Why Obama says he isn't going after people, I do not understand, since the DOJ is landing on people like a ton of bricks.

12. This is what I've been saying all alone...

Don't bother trying to legalize pot while the feds continue to be stupid about it, just make the penalties so lax and don't enforce the laws so as pot becomes legal by proxy.
