Up In Smoke: Medical Marijuana Chamber Backs Obama

A national chamber of commerce has officially endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election. No, not that chamber. What are you, high?

The United States Medical Marijuana Chamber of Commerce has come out in support of President Obama, even though the president hasn't been exactly enthusiastic about legalizing  medical cannabis.

Thomas Leto III, chamber president, said in a statement that the "economic potential of the cannabis business in the U.S. is limitless and President Obama understands this. It is our impression that Mr. Romney just doesn't get it."

Yup, weed is just like anything else these days: if you're not talking about the economy, you might as well not be talking.
