“It’s time for the Justice Department to recognize the sovereignty of the states,” California Governor Jerry Brown said on CNN’s “State of the Union. “We are capable of self-government. We don’t need some federal gendarme to come and tell us what to do. I believe in comity toward the states, that’s a decent respect.”

I wish more Governor’s would step up. On ANY other issue, Governor’s are fighting as hard as they can to protect state’s rights, even if it’s just to protect their own power. But for some reason when it comes to marijuana policy, most Governor’s act like states’ rights don’t exist. I encourage every TWB reader to contact their Governor to tell them how they feel!

    “Careful, you might sound like a Republican” CNN is just as bad as FOX news these days.

      Thanks, I’m going to start watching more of CNN, I don’t care where the truth comes from. I’m a Libertarian, not a socialist MSNBC watcher.

        You make no sense. Why would you start watching more CNN? Fox, CNN, MSNBC are all corporately own pieces of crap. I get better News from PBS. That’s right, big bird style!

          Hi Johnny: If you have satellite TV, I recommend TYT (The Young Turks) hosted by Cenk Uygir which comes on at 6PM Central time on Current TV, it’s a good program to watch. Granted it’s an opinion show, but they give cannabis the respect that it deserves. They also call out MSNBC, FOX and CNN when they behave scurrilously. Other news sources I follow are AL Jazeera (they do actual reporting imagine that) and RT (Russia Television). Peace.

            I also watch RT and AL Jazeera. AL Jazeera kind of reminds me of the BBC.
