U S House Votes to End Funding for Federal Medical Marijuana Raids [VIDEO]

Published on Jun 2, 2014

The House of Representatives in Washington passed a resolution that would end all funding for federal raids on legal medical marijuana dispensaries.

The move came as an amendment to a little-noticed bill, sponsored by Sam Farr, a Democrat, and Republican Dana Rohrabacher, both from California. It passed on a vote of 219 to 189. Most democrats voted in favor of the amendment, with the majority of Republicans opposed. With 49 members of the GOP favoring the move, it passed the full House. This is the first time the lower house of Congress has ever approved such a measure.

The original bill provides funding to several government agencies, including the Justice Department. That agency enforces federal marijuana prohibition in states that have legalized the natural medicine.

Dan Riffle of the Marijuana Policy Project told the press, “Congress is officially pulling out of the war on medical marijuana patients and providers. Federal tax dollars will no longer be wasted arresting seriously ill medical marijuana patients and those who provide to them.”

There are still several hurdles to be overcome before the spigot of federal dollars for such raids is shut off. The spending bill will need to clear the Democratically-controlled Senate, and would need to be signed by the President.

This amendment may signal a change in worldview from federal lawmakers, concerning cannabis.

Rohrabacher told Congress, “if a doctor feels that he needs to prescribe something to alleviate that suffering it is immoral for this government to get in the way.”

Steve Cohen, a 65-year-old Democratic congressman from Tennessee, stated, “Marijuana does not make people commit crime. It makes them overeat.”

Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld Committed War Crimes [VIDEO]

Published on Jun 2, 2014

http://www.democracynow.org – Richard Clarke, the nation’s former top counterterrorism official, tells Democracy Now! he believes President George W. Bush is guilty of war crimes for launching the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Clarke served as national coordinator for security and counterterrorism during Bush’s first year in office. He resigned in 2003 following the Iraq invasion and later made headlines by accusing Bush officials of ignoring pre-9/11 warnings about an imminent attack by al-Qaeda. “I think things that they authorized probably fall within the area of war crimes,” Clarke says. “Whether that would be productive or not, I think, is a discussion we could all have. But we have established procedures now with the International Criminal Court in The Hague, where people who take actions as serving presidents or prime ministers of countries have been indicted and have been tried. So the precedent is there to do that sort of thing. And I think we need to ask ourselves whether or not it would be useful to do that in the case of members of the Bush administration. It’s clear that things that the Bush administration did — in my mind, at least — were war crimes.”

U.S. Drone Program Under Obama “Got Out of Hand” [VIDEO]

Published on Jun 2, 2014

http://www.democracynow.org – Richard Clarke served as the nation’s top counterterrorism official under presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush before resigning in 2003 in protest of the Iraq War. A year before the Sept. 11 attacks, Clarke pushed for the Air Force to begin arming drones as part of the U.S. effort to hunt down Osama bin Laden. According to Clarke, the CIA and the Pentagon initially opposed the mission. Then Sept. 11 happened. Two months later, on November 12, 2001, Mohammed Atef, the head of al-Qaeda’s military forces, became the first person killed by a Predator drone. According to the Bureau for Investigative Journalism, U.S. drones have since killed at least 2,600 people in Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Clarke has just written a novel about drone warfare called, “Sting of the Drone.” We talk to Clarke about the book and his concerns about President Obama’s escalation of the drone war. “I think the [drone] program got out of hand,” Clarke says. “The excessive secrecy is as counterproductive as some of the strikes are.”
