When Clinton vetoed the Washington D.C. budget for a variety of
reasons, including its ban on any future legalization of medical
marijuana, he sent this message to Congress, bureaucratically titled:
"District Of Columbia Appropriations Act, 2000 -- Veto Message From
the President of The United States (H. Doc. No. 106-135) (House of
Representatives, September 28, 1999)"

No, he never used the m-m words.

He phrased it thus, "Controlled Substances. The bill would prohibit
the District from legislating with respect to certain controlled
substances, in a manner that all States are free to do." Uh, the
states are free to legalize medical marijuana.

Right. And Clinton's Justice Department is free to come into those
states and arrest those who try to take advantage of that legislation.
I get it.

I guess this country is a lot freer than I thought!
