9. Let's be generous and say that's the case

Where is the enormous pressure from voters demanding that the Obama admin crack down on medical marijuana? There are a lot different issues the feds can be involved in and they make active decisions on what to focus on and not focus on.

That's where your second link comes in (which references the Raw Story piece I linked to in the OP by the way). If the Feds were NOT cracking down on medical marijuana does anyone really think it would hurt Obama's re-election chances? That anyone would even notice? That it would become some major issue in this election? No, in fact it appears the opposite is true, i.e. medical marijuana/marijuana advocates are angered by the actions of the Obama admin, and rightfully so.
