President Obama Speaks on Marijuana (God Through Carlo Ferdinando and Anne Terri With The Holy Spirit)
As many await the legalization of marijuana in the United States of America, President Barack Obama spoke both for and against the use of marijuana. The headlines around the world, quote him as saying that marijuana is a 'bad habit' and 'a vice', but in doing so, placed it right along side of alcohol consumption, which is legalized.
In a press interview with the New Yorker, Obama stated to their reporter David Remnick. "I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”
This does not mean he is encouraging this, but definitely spoke out against being jailed for the use of marijuana. His admittance to using it himself in his youth, is a positive first step, for Obama does not feel it is right to set up laws against something many have done, where only a few get punished. He is showing progress in the support of the legalization of recreational marijuana, which is currently being discussed in the states of Colorado and Washington.
This is the first step in a long but important series of changes yet to come.
