Obama, Who Evidently Has Not Read the Controlled Substances Act, Denies That He Has the Power to Reclassify Marijuana – Hit & Run : Reason.com

The DEA clearly is bending over backward to keep marijuana on Schedule I, and nothing in the CSA requires it to do that.

Well, duh.  The DEA is a government agency created to enforce laws against illegal drugs.  Removing some drugs from the illegal list would reduce the size and scope of its duties.  No federal agency, if given a choice, is going to commit this sort of partial suicide.  Government agencies are supposed to be immortal – didn’t you know?

Expecting a government agency to threaten its own Iron Rice Bowl is the height of insanity.  It just won’t happen, and Obama knows it.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
