It's time for the Feds to give up this "war on pot" that is costing so much in taxpayer dollars. The Feds gave up on Prohibition in a much shorter time when they realized it was fruitless, and alcohol causes far more problems than marijuana. After so many states have decided to allow medical marijuana, the Feds are just looking like fools for keeping up this battle that is putting people into prison (another taxpayer cost) for terms longer than some murderers receive, especially at a time when the budget is out of money but the Feds are insisting on fighting and incarcerating people who are following the legal guidelines of their states.
