Gimme a L... Gimme a E... Gimme a G...

What does that spell? Legalize! A word that supposedly, neither President Obama nor ONDCP Director Gil Kelikowske have in their combined vocabulary.

Ok. While Obama doesn't say legalize here - he does say decriminalize. What is much more important in this clip is:
"I think that the war on drugs has been an utter failure."
Is failure in their vocabulary? Because they better get used that word being associated with U.S. drug policy if neither are willing to even say the "L-word". How can we take these two seriously when it comes to the much needed reform of our criminal justice system and drug policies?
