-- Ask Obama WHY he Doesn't Support Marijuana Legalization! --
    #172300 - 12/29/08 03:55 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

A new round of Obama's Open for Questions exercise has begun!  Please help keep the matter of marijuana legalization in the minds of our elected officials.  Though you may not find this issue to be of pressing need, open dialogue about smart and compassionate policies should have an effect on our entire conglomerate of misguided governmental policy.  This would actually help to reduce spending, reduce non-violent prison populations (which are out of control), while increasing tax revenue and personal safety.  All I'm asking you to do, and it should only take about one more minute:

  • Visit the change.gov Open for Questions page
  • Register or login on the site (instant - no email verification required)
  • Do a search for questions with "prohibitionist"
  • And then click the check mark to vote for the following question:
    Quote:

    "Why won't you support the federal legalization of marijuana, which would increase tax revenue, reduce social harm, and create new jobs by regulating an industry that already exists in the US, even amidst our current prohibitionist policy?"




Hopefully we can receive a more substantive response this time around.  Please vote in favor of the similar questions as well (there are quite a few!).  The more frequently we can place these questions in their Top 10, the more likely the administration is to offer a comprehensive response, as well as the more likely the general populous will be to honestly reconsider our failed drug policy.

Even though our previous question garnered the #1 spot in Obama's first "Open for Questions" exercise, his administration skirted the meat of it and simply stated that "President-elect Obama is not in favor of the legalization of marijuana."  Let's try to find out a little more about WHY he does not favor this seemingly sensible path.  Fortunately, the issue has been receiving some positive media attention:
Quote:

"Apparently, the arrest of nearly 1,000,000 otherwise law abiding citizens each year for mere possession of cannabis, the relentless persecution of the sick and dying, and the continued incarceration of 1 out of every 100 adults, (and the imprisonment, jailing, probation or parole of  1 out of every 31 adults) is finally getting on peoples nerves.

Yes, these questions will not go away. Lawmakers around the country will have to suck it up and realize that, as Barney Frank put it: this is an area where the public is way ahead of the politicians."




Thanks for taking just a minute to help evoke positive change! :heart:

I hope to see positive change like this in my lifetime

It will be interesting to see what his administration says about this new question, hopefully they won't skirt it like the first one

right now the marijuana question is down to #30. . .

Maybe they rigged it, it seems to be chastising bush & the bailout money and such.

this isn't all directed at geokills...

because :obama: is a :puppet:.
bush is getting banned, so they created a new puppet to troll our govt

i'm sorry i keep naysaying in these threads, but he WILL NOT do anything that will upset the status quo, at least in regard to the medical-industrial and military-industrial complexes. :shrug:

see sig.

but good luck all in your campaign for change. hopefully he will listen to this grassroots movement, but i have a feeling that the will of the people will be ignored by our ruling class just as it was overwhelmingly against the bailout.

the problem is not in the executive branch, though it is easy to cast blame on the one person with the most concentrated power. the problem really is with congress. if you do not contact your elected reps, they will not represent u. and if you're in a minority constituency, like myself (being a libertarian republican), you don't get represented for shit. but i contact my reps a lot. so i get to bitch if they fuck up cuz i keep tellin them "i told you so!"

so keep posting on the internet to obama that u want weed legal, in the meantime, i'm smokin fat greens thanks to prop 215 :gethigh:

nigga please by saying you voted for someone who got less than 5% of the popular vote somehow excuses you from all the policy made by our new President is absurd. Ron Paul is a fucking freak, I cant believe you voted for someone who wanted to get rid of the Federal Reserve, what a kook you are.

it seems they're censoring our marijuana questions.  The top mj question has 6,600 votes yet is not on the top 10....  They're about to get a very angry email from me.

It's still like that now. We are just going to have to keep getting our people to do their job even without the publicity of being on the front page.

I too emailed them asking why they were filtering questions
