Just about everybody knows that pot makes you want to eat, except for the Attorney General of the United States. To keep marijuana illegal, he has to official believe that it doesn't. You see if he admits that it does then marijuana has a medical use and does not belong on schedule I, right up there with heroin.
It is not a good thing for the country to have the nation's top law enforcement officer have to officially hold obvious lies and form major policy around those lies but that's where we are with the drug war.
