How come Obama said he promised he would legalize Marijuana and still nothing happened?

He promised he would at least decriminalize where the states can decide and not the Federal Government. So far its still just as criminal as when Bush was in office. This is what he promised before he got elected. What happened? When is he gonna legalize marijuana like he said he would? What other promises did he lie about? No taxes for anyone making less than $250,000 a year? The first thing he does is raise the cigarette tax! Most of the people smoking cigarettes make less than that! Now he wants to raise taxes on alcohol. My Newports and Malt Liquor is now gonna a whole lot more thanks to Obama. Hes also gonna add a fat tax which includes soda and all the good tasting food! Another poor tax that he promised wouldnt see any form of tax increase! What more did he lie about? He said he was gonna end the Bush tax cuts for the filthy rich and evil corporations who dont pay their fair share. He promised the Dream Act would pass for illegal aliens. He promised he would catch Bin Laden. He promised the war in Iraq and Afganistan would end. He said the economy would improve and jobs would come back and nothing got better! What other promises did he lie about? How can anyone vote for this liar.

As far as I know, two bills entered and failed in Congress (one for a decriminalization of marijuana, the other for the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes.)

He & his wife spend too much time on vacation to even think about doing anything else. Right now they are on number 11 for the year.
