WhiteHouse.gov

As Scott says, there are certain things that it’s just nice to actually see in print at a site with a whitehouse.gov domain, such as:

President Obama and Vice President Biden believe the disparity between sentencing crack and powder-based cocaine is wrong and should be completely eliminated. […]
The President also supports lifting the federal ban on needle exchange, which could dramatically reduce rates of infection among drug users.

Of course, we’ll wait for deeds, not words, but again these are not bad words for a President these days (nor is this draft order for closing Guantanamo).
We’re not going to see marijuana legalization on WhiteHouse.gov. I don’t even think we’ll see ending medical marijuana raids on there (if they stop, they’ll stop quietly).
But sentencing reform and needle exchange is a nice start.
