We don't have a problem with the Marc Rich pardon. Marc Rich was the  
victim of political grandstanding and overzealous prosecution by Rudi  
Giuliani. (No surprise there.)

But Eric Holder has a unique chance to clean up his checkered past on  
the marijuana issue with a raft of new recommendations for clemency.

In the spirit of Forgiveness--how about full presidential pardons for  
medical marijuana in California and other states where it's legal?

No medical marijuana patient or provider ever tortured, engaged in  
illegal wiretaps, or waged gratuitous wars of aggression. None of  
them fraudulently took a $100 million bonus as their bank went bust.  
Not one of them even sold a phony mortgage with the explicit purpose  
of cheating old folks out of their home.  Instead, their crime was to  
heal the sick, ease the pain and nausea.

If Obama won't keep his campaign pledge to call off the war on  
medical marijuana, by sending a clear signal to federal law  
enforcement with presidential pardons now, the least we can ask is  
vigorous enforcement of the law against the people who got us into  
this mess.

We want either full medical marijuana amnesty for everyone prosecuted  
under Bush, or a guilty republican politician as a cellmate for every  
pot prisoner in America.

The day before Eric Holder's confirmation hearings begin, we intend  
to visit his offices at Covington and Burling and Obama Transition  
Team headquarters with pictures of prominent republicans pardoned or  
not even prosecuted, and black-bordered photos of medical marijuana  
martyrs. Join us at high noon at Freedom  Plaza, 13th & Pennsylvania.
