President Barack Obama is famous for many things, including two best-selling autobiographical books. In those books, he openly admitted to using illegal drugs as a young man, specifically marijuana. So, one would think that he would be amenable to reforming drug laws and sentencing guidelines, or even legalizing marijuana.
Instead he has been two-faced on the issue. He suggests that things can be better managed and that drug prohibition has certain unintended consequences, but when it comes to actual policy and action, his administration has shown little open-mindedness when it comes to reform.
