Pot Politics
File - In this April 27, 2012, file photo shows a protester outside the Portalnd City Club during the attorney general candidate's debate between Dwight Holton and Ellen Rosenblum, in Portland, Ore. Medical marijuana advocates have a message for Democratic leaders and federal prosecutors with an eye on political office: Don't mess with pot. Pushing back against the Obama administration�s crackdown on state medical marijuana programs, one of the nation�s largest pro-pot groups is claiming credit for the defeat of a former federal prosecutor in the Democratic primary for Oregon attorney general. As interim U.S. attorney, Dwight Holton called Oregon's medical marijuana law a "train wreck" and oversaw efforts to crack down on pot shops and marijuana gardens that claim to be operating under the state law.
