DU Thread Of The Day: Obama’s Anti-Pot, Or Something

by William Teach | May 14, 2010 9:30 am

Recently, I received and email from a reader who pays attention to my site, Stop The ACLU, and Right Wing News, wondering whatever happened to all the DU threads, Kos posts, and other unhinged lefty posts that used to be excerpted. I know I started DU dumpster dives long ago, after seeing John Hawkins do it (RWN was the first blog I ever read, before I even knew what one was.) But, alas, the folks on the left aren’t as fun as they used to be, without Bush in charge. Also, really, with all the crazy/insane/stupid things emanating from the Obama admin, who needs the DU and others?

That said, I took a gander this am just for something different, and seems that the DUers are a wee bit upset with President Neophyte over this started by poster Slippery Slope: Seriously Obama? Smoke a joint last week, go to jail for DUI this week?[1]

Under the newly released White House National Drug Policy (link http://www.whitehousedrugpolicy.gov/publications/policy…[2] ), Obama is calling for the presence of *any* marijuana in your body to be de jure evidence of driving under the influence.

A. Encourage States To Adopt Per Se Drug Impairment Laws
State laws regarding impaired driving are varied, but most State codes do not contain a separate offense for driving under the influence of drugs … Fifteen states have passed laws clarifying that the presence of any illegal drug in a driver’s body is per se evidence of impaired driving … expand the use of this standard to other states …

Let the fun begin!

The thread keeps going on and on and on, but, even though slightly tame, ending with Bush/Cheney blame is great place to stop. They are getting pretty funny, because they are realizing that they were, um, duped.
