By Pete Guither - One member of the press corps, however, brought up the fact that marijuana legalization is a serious subject to many people, particularly with Mexico right now, and when Gibbs didn't really respond, the reporter asked him to explain "Why?" "Why he feels that way about legalizing marijuana?"
Here was Gibbs' response:
"Uh, he, he does not think that, uh, uh, that that is uh, uh, [pause] he opposes it, he doesn't think that that's the, the right plan for America."
Apparently that is the new U.S. Government position on why marijuana should be illegal.
It's fascinating that he couldn't come up with anything other than the equivalent of... "because."
If we can't have an Administration that can have an honest dialogue about marijuana legalization, I guess the next best thing is to have one that can't talk about it at all.
