Why Does President Obama Defy 74% Of Americans?

We reported recently on a poll that shows 74% of Americans supporting medical marijuana laws. In politics that is more than a super-majority. Yet President Obama continues his crackdown on medical marijuana, decimating the industry and denying hundreds of thousands of people – if not millions – legal protection their state has bestowed upon them.
As I’ve been saying for almost a year, where is the political upside in this for Obama? Can you point to any political gains the President will get from this policy?
Neither can I. And since Barack Obama is not an idiot, he must be doing this for another reason. And that reason can only be money. He needs Big Pharma campaign contributions to battle the virtually unlimited amount of money Mitt Romney is going to spend this fall. So he gives medical marijuana patients the shaft.
I hope the money is worth it, Mr. President.
