Obama Hedges on Medical MJ: *IF* and *CONSIDER*

If Obama was real, why does he hedge his stance on allowing medical use of marijuana?

A proper statement would be that we *already* know that marijuana has medicinal value for a great many people, and that he would hence allow it.

By so parsing his statements with the words *IF*, and that he would hence *CONSIDER* allowing it, then are we not again allowing ourselves to be set up for yet another disappointment.

Expect an Obama administration to either later claim that marijuana is not medically useful, or perhaps not sufficiently medically useful (aka that their are "better" pharmaceutical/patent medicine alternatives), and in any event consider but not ultimately permit medical marijuanna, at least for most people.
