The Obama administration announced today that it will not seek to arrest medical marijuana users and suppliers as long as they conform to state laws, under new policy guidelines to be sent to federal prosecutors Monday 19th October. A 3-page memo spelling out the policy is expected to be sent Monday to federal prosecutors in the 14 states which allow some use of marijuana for medical purposes, and also to top officials at the FBI and the DEA.
According to officials, the memo is designed to give a sense of prosecutorial priorities to U.S. Attorneys in the states that allow medical marijuana. It notes that cannabis sales in the United States are the largest source of money for violent Mexican drug cartels, but adds that federal law enforcement agencies have limited resources – It emphasizes that prosecutors have wide discretion in choosing which cases to pursue, and says it is not a good use of federal manpower to prosecute those who are without a doubt in compliance with state law.

Our very own selection of our favorite celebrity stoners taken from celebstoner.com
He is on number one because of this quote: “The War on Drugs has been an utter failure. We need to rethink and decriminalize our marijuana laws.” He will remain our number one all time favourite if he actually does what he says.
On number two because of his roles in Bongwater and Orange County. Most importantly, let’s not forget his band Tenacious D. If Jack Black doesn’t make you laugh you probably do not have a clue of what humour is.
On number 3 for his continuing effort to the legalisation movement, him hosting the cannabis cup hemp fashion show and his arrest for marijuana possession in Brooklyn on May 17, 2007. Need we say more?
McCartney has called for decriminalization of marijuana on many occasions. “People are smoking pot anyway,” he says. “To make them criminals is wrong.”
We couldn’t agree more.
On number 5 because of the quality of his work and the memorable quote in a German television interview: “I did more dope then you can possibly dream about”
