    Of course, his motivation is nothing but political. I have no doubt that enforcement targets minorities and low income areas. But why not just say "I want to legalize MJ because it is harmless"? Once it is legal, everything else he wants follows. His political approach simply makes reaching a consensus more difficult.

    I do love the pic of the elderly lady with the sign.

    Well I wonder if he truly believes it is also harmless, but that is more dangerous to say than the political reasons. As with all politicians, we do not really know how he truly feels. I'd like to think (maybe I'm being naive) that anyone who is pushing for something to be legalized must also feel that it is no threat. The reasoning he will publicly say will just be whatever is more palatable to most people.

    I think he is trying to appeal to many constituencies at once; Most Americans (over 50%) believe it should be legal.



    I may not agree with all of his motivations but I understand them and I applaud his effort.
