Attorney General Confirms: No More Raids!

**I hope this is accurate!!!**

Speaking with reporters at a press conference touting a US-led campaign that resulted in the arrests of 750 members of the violent Mexican Sinaloa Drug Cartel, Attorney General Eric Holder – the highest level law enforcement official in America – confirmed the federal government’s new policy of respecting the rights of medical marijuana patients and providers in states with laws protecting them.

Fast forward to 24:45 in this CSPAN video to hear Holder strongly affirm that what Obama said about medical marijuana during the campaign is now “American policy.”
So what did Obama say about medical marijuana during the campaign? Read it below, or watch the video.

“I would not have the Justice Department prosecuting and raiding medical marijuana users. It's not a good use of our resources."
