Obama Pressed on Medical Marijuana, but Won't Support it Just Yet

Nah

It's been a while, but President Barack Obama has gone on record condoning medical marijuana use. As candidate and as president, he's said, sick people should be able to access the drug.

They just need to do keep on doing so illegally, the White House said on Wednesday.

Faced with his second marijuana question in as many days, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday that a change in federal law — which could make these sick people no longer criminals — is not something the president supports “at this point.”

He may mean “before the midterms,” but for some liberals, enough is enough.
