A couple of weeks ago at the Congressional Dinner, Obama joked about marijuana and his pot-smoking past…while he received laughter from the audience plus millions of viewers at home, California collectives across the state have nothing to laugh about. In fact, quite the opposite. The federal government has been actively warning and shutting down collectives from San Diego to the Bay area and they don’t seem to be backing down. It’s actually getting a bit ridiculous and it’s not looking good for California collectives.
So who’s to blame? Obama?
He’s been deemed the “do nothing” President. So is he not doing enough or are there just too many “bigger fish to fry?” At least that is his excuse, right?
And why can’t the California government do anything about it?
All very good questions and I’m sure our very own Katherine Tattersfield has some insight on this. So who do you think is to blame?
