Obama May Not Favor Medi-Pot Raids, But DEA Sure Does
The DEA last week raided a South Lake Tahoe dispensary, the first such raid since Obama took office
DAILY News  January 25, 2009, by Jordan Smith
"...Obama has said that he does not support federal raids on medi-pot patients using the drug in compliance with state laws ("You know, its really not a good use of Justice Department resources," he told New Hampshire Democrats in 2007), but he has not yet named a new head of the DEA, meaning Bush's acting DEA administrator Michele Leonhart is still running the show. (Leonhart earlier this month ended the years long stall in the Lyle Craker case, turning down his bid to grow a research pot crop, prompting some to argue that the DEA is trying to squeeze in as many pinches of medi-pot patients as possible before Obama changes the agency guard.) "Whether or not this unconscionable raid on a medical marijuana provider is the fault of federal officials from the previous administration, President Obama has an opportunity to change this harmful and outdated policy," Caren Woodson, director of government affairs for the medi-pot advocacy group Americans for Safe Access, said in a press statement Thursday..."

At DEA, Business As Usual
And more of the same if Leonhart is confirmed as agency head
DAILY News  November 16, 2010, by Jordan Smith
"...Indeed, Leonhart is a holdover from the Bush Administration, where she reigned over an agency that seemed to really, really enjoy busting medi-pot users, even those using and growing the drug in compliance with state laws. In fact, even after President Barack Obama made good on a campaign promise to end raids of medi-pot patients and dispensaries, Leonhart's DEA kept on keeping on, as if the new policy banning most such raids had not already taken effect..."

A statewide ballot measure, similar to the 2005 Denver initiative, failed to pass in 2006..."
