Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) used the House Judiciary Oversight committee hearing to berate Attorney General Eric Holder about the Obama Administration’s aggressive war on marijuana.
Despite public support for marijuana legalization being higher than ever before, the Obama Administration under Holder’s leadership has beenworse than any other recent president when it comes to the issue of medical marijuana.
It is a rare and amazing thing to see a member of Congress directly confront the individual technically responsible for carrying out the War on Drugs with the facts about what a failed policy it has proven to be.
Cohen provides one of the best and concise arguments for ending marijuana prohibition heard in Congress. It is worth sharing.
