Medical Marijuana Chamber of Commerce Endorses Obama: Huh?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 28th 2012 by THCFinder

The United States Medical Marijuana Chamber of Commerce – a group 10,000 members strong – has endorsed President Barack Obama for reelection.

 

"Let’s not get distracted by the myriad of issues that will be brought to the forefront at the upcoming political conventions, the single most important election issue is getting our economy back on track,” said Thomas L. Leto III, president and founder of the U.S. Medical Marijuana Chamber of Commerce. “The economic potential of the cannabis business in the U.S. is limitless and President Obama understands this. It is our impression that Mr. Romney just doesn’t get it.”

 

No one can deny that Mitt Romney “just doesn’t get it,” but to claim the President does get it, in the midst of the biggest crackdown in medical marijuana’s short history, is ludicrous.

 

According to Leto, legalized cannabis would become a $100 billion annual industry and would bring with it 5 million new jobs within the first year of changing federal strictures. These stats may or may not be accurate; there is no way to tell the future, but we do know some tax revenue and some jobs will be created. But what has Obama done to indicate he wants to foster this future industry, besides some lies he coughed up as a candidate for President?

 

Like any good politician, Obama tries to claim he didn’t change his position, but his previous quotes are on video and his actions are in plain view for all to see.

 

One has to wonder why the Chamber didn’t endorse the obvious choice for President, Gary Johnson. He is the only who understands what legalization can do and he is the only one who continually advocates for it. He is also the only candidate on the ballot in all 50 states who will fight for the rights of medical marijuana patients and end the crackdown.
