News broke this morning about loosening marijuana policies in states that sanction the drug’s medicinal uses. First up, Oakland and San Francisco International Airports will let passengers with medical marijuana cards fly while carrying up to eight ounces of pot. The policy has actually been “quietly” in place for a year, and according to reports, hasn’t caused any security slowdowns.
What’s more, President Obama has stuck with his promises to stop federal drug raids on dispensaries with medical marijuana laws. A policy statement released today clarifies that the DEA will not raid pot clubs solely for the purpose of busting them for drugs. However, if they suspect that other laws are being broken, the federal government will investigate.
