Well there appears to have been some sort of deal made when Obama had those closed door meetings about his healthcare bill, because all of the sudden he's selling out his promise to let states regulate their marijuana laws. Some pharmaceutical company is getting their wish (if I had to guess).
F*** Obama and F*** CA if we stand by and let this happen.

Federal prosecutors are threatening to shut down medical marijuana dispensaries throughout California, sending letters that warn landlords to stop sales of the drug within 45 days or face the possibility that their property will be seized and they will be charged with a crime.
The stepped-up enforcement escalates the Obama administration's efforts to rein in the spread of pot stores, which accelerated after the attorney general announced in 2009 that federal prosecutors would not target people using medical marijuana in states that allow it."
