2. isn't that conveeeeeeeeeenient
1.Pot- Dr. Dean stated something to the effect that in his first 12 months in office, he would push for testing at the federal level to determine the potential benefits of medical MJ...even going so far as to say that he personally believes that such benefits do exist, and that it should be made available to those whose conditions warrant it.

The "potential" benefits have been examined at Clinton's behest. These benefits have been spelled out. This is a ploy by Dean to regain the crowd that is very pissed at him for fighting against MMJ when it came up in Vermont.

Personally, I think the man could go very far on a policy of drug-law reform, but he'll never touch it. And any promises Dean might make today about medical marijuana mean NOTHING to me and a lot of others. His actions speak louder than his words on this issue.
