Looks like Obama will set the federal government's priorities straight on medical marijuana if elected.

Update: This site is a scam. They will not send you a pipe!
I don't mean to advertise any products but this new website is just awesome!
It's a new website that uses what I suppose is flash to design and build your very own custom water pipe. A really cool idea. I haven't ordered from the site but if you have, please share!

It's always a good thing to see members of congress taking action for medical marijuana.
A letter signed by 45 members of the U.S. House of Representatives will be delivered today to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) demanding an end to the obstruction of scientific research aimed at developing marijuana as a legal prescription medicine.
More people are starting to realize that this is an issue of state rights and the professional health care providers within the states.
“The DEA is ignoring the vast scientific evidence that clearly shows medicinal use of marijuana benefits patients who are extremely ill,” said Congressman Nadler today. “When it comes to providing the best treatment options to sick Americans, we should trust doctors and medical researchers and not federal bureaucrats.”
Just incase you are not aware of the problems regarding marijuana research.
"Patients, scientists, and researchers are caught in a Catch-22," said Professor Craker, who is the director of the Medicinal Plant Program in the Department of Plant, Insect and Soil Sciences at University of Massachusetts, Amherst. "DEA continues to arrest patients on the basis that marijuana is not approved by FDA, while simultaneously obstructing the very research that would be required for FDA to approve marijuana as a medicine."
Here is a list of the respective members who signed the letter.

If you want to learn about the history and politics of marijuana check out this full video documentary, "Grass". This video may not stay up for long so I suggest you run to your local Blockbuster and rent this if it is no longer available online.
