13. I'm afraid it's Obama that will be the idiot if he prosecutes these laws federally,

1) Hemp advocates are currently one of the most effective political elements of the Dem party (as evidenced by their 50 year fight for legalization that resulted in major wins).

2) Obama alienates this motivated and politically active section of the Dem base by prosecuting them federally.

3) Hemp advocates move to the libertarian wing of the Republican party.

Again, it's a no-brainer.

Leave hemp advocates alone.
