Obama will make your weed legal because he models himself after FDR, a presumably stoned Esquire writer asserts.
First he reminds us why this won't happen:
But alas, the answer from Camp Obama was — as it has been for years — a flat one-liner: "President-elect Obama is not in favor of the legalization of marijuana." And at least two of Obama's top people are drug-war supporters: Rahm Emanuel has been a long-time enemy of reform, and Joe Biden is a drug-war mainstay who helped create the position of "drug czar."
BUT! He says! Obama will still probably decriminalize it, quietly, in his second term. Because some guy from NORML said he's cautiously optimistic. Dream on, hippies! Drug war 4-eva!
