How can we support a president, or other 'representative', with this type of chicken sht approach to this or any other single issue? The two-party system provides no mechanism to address single issues where your preferred 'representative' is diametrically apposed to reason. Obama has made it clear with his actions, and lack of actions, that he is supporting the pharmaceutical industry over the rights and will of the majority of the people. If we had a true participatory democracy, a consensus based democratic system of social organisation, then we could all be heard and debated on the issues that effect us, and we would not be forced to "buy" the BS of the lesser of the evils the owners provide for us.
The drug war is lost, and is now transforming into a prison-industrial-complex tool of endless inmates for-profit. The casino-gulag has been realized.
