Did President Bush Lie? No, not about Iraq, about medical marijuana.

When President Bush first ran for the White House and he was asked about medical-marijuana laws, The Washington Post reported, Bush answered, "I believe each state can choose that decision as they so choose."

So why is it that President Bush has taken a hard-line approach. His administration has challenged states that voted to legalize medical marijuana. White House Drug Czar John Walters contends that medical-marijuana is a cynical gambit used by people who want to legalize all drugs and are hiding behind sick people to advance a pro-drug agenda.

Debra Saunders looks at the medical marijuana debate...and says that President Bush isn't following through on his stated position he gave in the 2000 campaign.
