Whitehouse.gov is once again asking the public to post questions directly to President Obama via its ‘Open For Questions‘
service. The topic of this week’s forum is the national economy, and
not surprisingly, many of you have already put forward questions to the
President regarding the taxation and regulation of cannabis.
For example, the most popular question in the category “Budget” is: “With
over 1 out of 30 Americans controlled by the penal system, why not
legalize, control, and tax marijuana to change the failed war on drugs
into a money making, money saving boost to the economy?”
Similarly, under the topic “Financial Stability,” most asked question is: “Would
you support the bill currently going through the California legislature
to legalize and tax marijuana, boosting the economy and reducing drug
cartel related violence?”
Marijuana-related questions also top the “Green Jobs and Energy”
category, and are among the top vote-getters on the site overall.
According to website, President Obama will “answer some of the most popular submissions live at WhiteHouse.gov” on Thursday morning. That means that we only have a few more hours left to contact the White House.
Please take a moment right now to log on the WhiteHouse.gov/OpenForQuestions and vote for the questions above, as well as others pertaining to the need to
regulate cannabis. Let the President know that millions of American
voters believe that the time has come to tax and regulate marijuana. Help us send The White House a message our elected leaders can't ignore.
