President Obama Talks Cannabis with Barbara Walters

 

“We’ve got bigger fish to fry. It would not make sense for us to see a top priority as going after recreational users in states that have determined that it’s legal.” – President Obama

“This is a tough problem, because Congress has not yet changed the law. I head up the executive branch; we’re supposed to be carrying out laws. And so what we’re going to need to have is a conversation about, how do you reconcile a federal law that still says marijuana is a federal offense and state laws that say that it’s legal?” – President Obama

“What I think is, that at this point, in Washington and Colorado, you’ve seen the voters speak on this issue. – President Obama
