Medical marijuana is safe from the feds

This ought to make Brendan Skwire happy:

Federal drug agents won’t pursue pot-smoking patients or their sanctioned suppliers in states that allow medical marijuana, under new legal guidelines to be issued Monday by the Obama administration. Two Justice Department officials described the new policy to The Associated Press, saying prosecutors will be told it is not a good use of their time to arrest people who use or provide medical marijuana in strict compliance with state law.

Is it crazy to suggest this means the freedom-hating Obama Administration is actually more federalist — that is, respectful of states and their individual governments — than the supposedly federalism-loving Republicans?

So when is Pennsylvania going to get its medical marijuana law?
