Good for her. She should be very proud of herself standing up for what she believes against the pressures.

What religious beliefs have to be changed? And for what reason, exactly?
God, she is such a dirtbag politician! Everything she says could be radical leftist drivel or it could be completely benign. And I’d bet that’s exactly the way she’d have it, too. This way she can tell all the leftists that she’s still one of them without shocking people in the middle. Ugh, disgusting.
I fully agree with you. We absolutely should be able to do what we want! Really just saying if they force it, alcohol seems to cause more issues (ie drunk drivers). I'm a beer lover myself ;)

Pat makes a good point that decriminalizing pot won’t solve the problem of militarized police who know nothing about the law and the constitution. However, it is worth pointing out that if pot were legal in Kentucky, Shona Bandanot would not have had to go through this and would not have lost her child. And she’s only one of many people who’s lives have been ruined when they did nothing to deserve it.
Also, over-criminalization is a hallmark of a police state.

It will reduce the number of infractions that they have to investigate, which should reduce the instances where they can abuse their authority.

The alternative is to stand your ground and insist the President find a nominee that will actually respect the office of Attorney General. This is why congress was given this power in the first place, to keep people like Holder Lynch away from these powerful positions.
