Obama: Government Has Better Things to do Than Worry About Recreational Pot

Says it's not a priority


WASHINGTON, Dec. 14 (UPI) — The U.S. government has "bigger fish to fry" than marijuana use in states that decriminalized the drug for recreational use, President Obama said.

Obama said prosecuting recreational users of marijuana in states that legalized the substance won't be a "top priority" in the fight against drug use, ABC News reported Friday.
