For those who remember our interview last year with then-presidential candidate Barack Obama, today's news should come as no surprise.

The Justice Department issued a memo to federal prosecutors telling them them not to target medical-marijuana patients and their sanctioned suppliers.

Meanwhile, Oregon's more forward-looking advocates of marijuana use are gathering signatures for a 2010 ballot measure to finally legalize it.
