Justice Dept. should go after bank fraud – not pot smokers

Letter to the Editor

Attorney General Eric Holder has his priorities wrong what he says that he is going to “vigorously enforce” federal marijuana laws calling it a “core priority”. Statement like that makes me wonder, “What’s this guy smoking?” Maybe the justice department should make catching the criminals that ripped off the banking system a core priority? Or make prosecuting the criminals in the Bush administration who got us into a war in Iraq through falsifying evidence a core priority? Maybe the should make going after Meth labs, drugs that really are dangerous, a core priority?

If Eric Holder thinks that going after pot smokers in California is a core priority then he has the wrong core priorities. I say that if the attorney general doesn’t have a clue about priorities then he should be looking for a new job. I encourage California to Vote YES on Proposition 19 and tell the Feds they have better things to do.
