Since Calderon opposes prop 19 in california would Obama now go after califonrnia if they pass?
Obama doesnt believe in states rights and listens to foreign leaders instead of the will of the people. Would Obama now go after california if prop 19 passes after he already said that he wouldnt even if we did pass it?
TIJUANA, Mexico — President Felipe Calderon said Thursday that a California ballot measure to legalize marijuana represents hypocrisy in U.S. drug policy for encouraging consumption while at the same time demanding that Mexico and other countries crack down on drug trafficking.
“For me, it reflects a terrible inconsistency in government policies in the United States,” the Mexican leader said late Thursday in an interview with The Associated Press.
California voters will decide on Nov. 2 whether to allow possession of up to 1 ounce of marijuana. Proposition 19 would also clear the way for local governments to permit retail sales of pot.
Calderon said he was certain that legalizing marijuana will lead to an increase in drug consumption.
“It’s very sad to see how drug consumption is, little by little, tearing apart American society and, if we don’t watch ourselves, it will tear apart ours,” the president said.
