A Small Positive

I haven't had much positive to say about the Obama administration's health care policies. But when they do something decent, I want to acknowledge that fact.

Hence, I'm glad to support their move to refrain from bringing federal prosecutions against patients and physicians using medical marijuana in accordance with state laws.

This is a small step in the right direction of allowing patients to freely seek medical services from willing providers without government interference.

Of course, there are even further steps the federal government could take to reduce and eventually eliminate bad drug laws. But for now, I'll gladly welcome this small step and I hope this will be the first, not the last, move in this direction.
