Obama: No Change on Cannabis, Just Jokes

Mr. Obama,

I saw your comment about marijuana legalization on your virtual town hall the other night. I have never used illegal drugs, nor would I use them if they became legal. But the prohibition drug policies we now enforce are no better than the alcohol prohibition of the 20s and 30s. They are a drag on our economy, increase threats to our security, and they prevent us from directly addressing the education and treatment needs of drug abusers. Your comments on the town hall expressed a rather cavalier attitude towards the Internet-savvy constituency to which you owe much of your current position of power and influence, and which has much greater access to the facts and the full debate than many Americans still bound to old media. Mr. Obama, I urge you to take a fresh look at the failed War on Drugs. We voted for change last November, and we expect you to govern based on the facts, not on precedent borne of racism, ignorance, and intolerance— which have led us to our current policy.
