In the "credit where credit is due" department ...

As regular readers of this blog have long since figured out (and could have predicted), I don't have a lot of nice things to say about President Barack Obama. So, when I do have something nice to say, I'll say it (just like I did with Dubyah). Which brings me to:

The Obama administration on Monday issued new less intrusive guidelines on the use of marijuana for medical purposes in a sharp shift from the policies of George W. Bush’s administration.

The Department of Justice told federal prosecutors in the 14 states that allow marijuana to be used for medical purposes that they should concentrate only on instances where drug dealers were abusing the laws.

Hey, it's a start. Kudos.
