Obama's Marijuana Stance Skewered by Jimmy Kimmel: VIDEO
Last week President Obama officially flip-flopped on medical marijuana, saying that, despite earlier promises not to use feds to "circumvent state laws about medical marijuana," big cannabis businesses would still be fair game for prosecution in places like California.
Of course, many a West Coast liberal isn't too happy. You can probably count Jimmy Kimmel among them:
During the annual White House Correspondents Dinner over the weekend host Kimmel let Obama have it when it comes to medical pot enforcement:
Kimmel, who was basically roasting the president, tried to appear serious when he said he had "one real question for you Mr. President:"
What is with the marijuana crackdown? Seriously, what is the concern? We will deplete the nation's Funyun supply? Pot smokers vote too. Sometimes a week after the election, but they vote.
