Don’t be dazed
New pot doc shows patients trying to obey the law

This is just weird.While the court has said “no” to rescheduling marijuana, Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee says he’s moving forward with working out that state’s regulations on legal recreational marijuana after a meeting with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. Voters in Washington OK’d recreational use of marijuana in November, and Inslee referred to his meeting with Holder as a “confidence builder” as state officials figure out how that’s going to work. “Confidence builder” is something of a cryptic term. Can’t somebody come out and say something definitive? Or is this a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing? On the one hand the DEA insists that marijuana is totally illegal and has no accepted medical use. On the other hand the U.S. attorney general seems to be telling a governor that the feds will not interfere with legal pot in Washington. Maybe we’ll get some clarity on this soon, but in the meantime “dazed and confused” does seem to be the name of the game.
