Obama just named a MM research opponent as the head of Fed DEA. Without Fed support, none of us are safe; no matter what our state laws say. The original marijuana prohibition goes back to the Dupont corporation wanting to ban hemp so they could introduce nylon as a government sanctioned monopoly. Some things never change. The recently passed law, removing century old caps on biz campaign contributions, will make that battle even harder.

Spectrum labs, a MM lad in Denver, was raided the other day by the DEA; despite the Obama admin promising not to.
Not to rain on our parade, but it feels like the 70's protests of the Vietnam war. Wait, we eventually won that battle!

Here's to marching forward with real progress....

And in (I presume) unrelated news, here is some more great news.
