Obama Withdraws Support for Marijuana Decriminalization
Now he's clear: he opposes decriminalization of marijuana.
What accounts for this latest switch? His campaign says he didn't understand what decriminalization meant.
A spokesman for Obama’s campaign blamed confusion over the meaning of decriminalization for the inconsistencies, and said that while Obama does not support decriminalization, "we are sending far too many first-time, nonviolent drug users to prison for very long periods of time, and that we should rethink those laws."
