Obama Tougher On Marijuana Than Bush – Oaksterdam Raid

April 30th, 2012

Via Mother Jones: “…agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency, US Marshals Service, and Internal Revenue Service served a warrant on Oaksterdam University, a trade school in Oakland, California, for medical marijuana growers. Local pot activist Richard Lee, the founder of “America’s first cannabis college,” was reportedly detained briefly at his home as the feds began to confiscate documents and pot from the school and a dispensary affiliated with him…The Oaksterdam raid isn’t a surprise considering the Obama administration’s about-face on medical marijuana. The president campaigned on the promise that he’d stop federal raids on medical marijuana operations that were in compliance with state laws, a vow that Attorney General Eric Holder repeated after the election. But then the Obama administration raided more than 100 dispensaries in its first three years and is now poised to outpace the Bush administration’s crackdown record…”.* Ana Kasparian, Cenk Uygur and Ben Mankiewicz discuss. * motherjones.com www.huffingtonpost.com Subscribe to The Young Turks: bit.ly Find out how to watch The Young Turks on Current by clicking here: www.current.com The Largest Online New Show in the World.

President Obama in his remarks at Osawatomie High School in Osawatomie, Kansas said, this is not just another political debate. This is the defining issue of our time. This is a make-or-break moment for the middle class, and for all those who are fighting to get into the middle class. Because what’s at stake is whether this will be a country where working people can earn enough to raise a family, build a modest savings, own a home, secure their retirement.

    This guy Ben know nothing. Oakland has FOUR dispensaries and recently authorized another 4. Oh, and I was one of the people who showed up that morning outside of Oaksterdam UNIVERSITY. As for why, the owner of Oaksterdam was the key financial backer of the ballot referendum to legalize marijuana in CA. The IRS is involved because? they say legitimate business expenses cannot be deducted by marijuana related businesses, unlike other businesses.

    It’s not a joke Ben, some people take this seriously. Why are you even talking if your? understanding of this is “limited” ? This is a real issue and even TYT can’t even talk about it without cracking stupid jokes and chuckling. Thanks for being professional you guys.

    communism is a classless society which robs ppl. of what they have worked so hard, obama keeps telling u that the rich dont pay enough in taxes, if u keep crippling the ppl. who create jobs they are going to sit on their money and not expand and hide their money into accounts overseas that obama cant get to and this is the result of a sluggish economy, but u dumbass obama bots still keep screaming its george bushs fault, bush has been gone? for 39 months and all this is on the communist B.O

  28. facasj1964 says:

    obamas launched his political career in the living room of the velvet underground which is a communnist front ran by bill ayres and bernadine dorn, who sat in the pughs of jeremiah wrights church of god dam america and americas chickens have come home to roost, a man? who keeps telling u idiots out there who support him that rich ppl. dont pay enough in taxes, the top 1% pay 38% of the taxes, the top 10% pay 70% of the taxes while the bottom 50% pay nothing in taxes. he is a communist.

  29. facasj1964 says:

    obama hasnt done shit, he has failed on so many fronts, fewer ppl. working than when he came in, his background in jeremiahs church of hate in chicago is what obama really feels about america, he is dedicated communist who on purposely is trying to destroy our capitalist economy and replace it with a govt controlled economy, a stimulus bill that didnt do nothing but add to the deficit, govt ran health care is all about control over the? individual and not about quality healthcare. obama gone 2012

    You can’t just fucking rip troops out of an area after multi-year, double operation war. And as far as Osama is concerned; he was the leader of Al-Qaeda, a radical muslim terrorist organization who did lead the attack on 9/11. The war? on drugs will never end, regardless of which president we have.And you tell me where all the prisoners from Guantanamo Bay will go?

    As far as taxes and inflation, you do have a point there…
