Prosecute banksters, not pot dispensers!

Shadow WatchA petition online at Roots Action unites the demands of the Occupy Wall Street movement with those of the medical marijuana movement. We are glad that some people are getting the big picture!

Federal prosecutors are wasting precious resources on medical marijuana while ignoring real crimes.

While the number of Wall Street banksters prosecuted for the massive fraud that crashed the global economy remains at exactly zero, the U.S. Department of Justice has just raided scores of marijuana growers and dispensaries in states where medical marijuana is legal. Some of the raids even targeted those regarded by local officials as "law-abiding models."

California's attorney general and the governors of Washington and Rhode Island are pushing back, and so can we.
Breaking a campaign promise, President Obama has allowed his Department of Justice to target these regulated, tax-paying businesses that are in compliance with state law and whose work helps to ease the pain of patients with cancer, AIDS, and a range of other ailments.

By contrast, Obama’s Justice Department is protecting or ignoring:

• The Wall Street thieves who brought down the real economy
• The war criminals, torturers, and warrantless spies who advertise their crimes on book tours
• The mayors and police forces violating our First Amendment rights and brutalizing us.
Tell the Justice Department and the White House to get their priorities straight.
