Arizona Governor Files Lawsuit to Stop Medical Marijuana Program

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, AKA 'Super Bitch'
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer announced today that she is suspending the state's newly formed medical marijuana program pending the outcome of a lawsuit filed in federal court today requesting a declaratory judgment from the federal government.

If the federal court agrees to take the case the declaration could determine whether Arizona's program is in conflict with federal drug laws.

“The state of Arizona has worked to follow the wishes of voters,” Brewer said in a news release. “But I won’t stand aside while state employees and average Arizonans acting in good faith are unwittingly put at risk. In light of the explicit warnings on this issue offered by Arizona’s U.S. Attorney, as well as many other federal prosecutors, clarity and judicial direction are in order.”

I personally can't stand Jan Brewer or her politics. She's very obviously NOT working to follow the wishes of the voters. In fact, this is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what the voters want. 

But she is right on one point. The feds do need to provide some clarification. Are they ultimately going allow the will of the voters or aren't they? And if they're not, why? This is still a Democracy right? Government by the people and for the people and all that jazz? What right do they have to prosecute medical marijuana patients and throw them in jail for something that the majority of voters think should be allowed? It's completely outrageous. Up yours, Jan Brewer!
