Obama Administration Issues Guidelines for Medical Cannabis States

On October 19, 2009 the Obama Administration formally issued guidelines directing federal authorities not to interfere with states that have passed medical cannabis programs.  Now that this is in writing, it further indicates that states can enact medical cannabis programs as they wish.  Illinois residents and legislators should see this as a clear message that the federal government will not interfere with those who follow the pending legislation, should it pass.  The only people the federal government will now target for arrest are those who are breaking the medical cannabis law of their state.
