Obama Campaign Retracts Statement Supporting Decriminalization

Washington, DC: Senator Barack Obama’s campaign backed away from statements
made last week affirming the Senator’s support for decriminalizing
marijuana, after being confronted with inconsistencies in his past and
present campaigns on the issue by the Washington Times.
A spokesman for Obama’s campaign blamed confusion over the meaning of
decriminalization for the inconsistencies, and said that while Obama does
not support decriminalization, "we are sending far too many first-time,
nonviolent drug users to prison for very long periods of time, and that we
should rethink those laws."

Director, at: allen@norml.org. Full text of the Washington Times article can
