Subj: 001 Ending Drug Prohibition Step IV EDUCATING OBAMA????

This comes as a surprise.

Q: "Will you consider legalizing marijuana so that the government can 
regulate it, tax it, put age limits on it, and create millions of new 
jobs and create a billion dollar industry right here in the U.S.?" S. 
Man, Denton

A: President-elect Obama is not in favor of the legalization of 
marijuana. (see: http://change.gov/newsroom/blog/P10/)
******

I was surprised to see Obama's response to a question that millions 
of Obama supporters want answered in the affirmative.

It's hard to tell how serious Obama is about the drug war at this 
point, but we should not wait to see what crumbs he'll throw us.

I'm sick and tired of being a criminal for using cannabis when I have 
done no harm to anyone. Any hypocritical SOB who thinks otherwise 
better be ready to stand and deliver when I meet up with him/her. 
That especially includes Obama.

I know full well that ALL DRUG LAWS ARE BASED ON LIES! Usually 
hysterical racist lies which is one reason Obama's reluctance to 
legalize marijuana is puzzling!

More than ten years of working with the Schaffer Drug Library 
convinces me that America's drug crusade is the most stupid, unjust, 
fiction based, corrupt, wicked, illogical, counterproductive policy 
since chattel slavery.

If Obama has any integrity and a little grit he will at least end 
marijuana prohibition.

We need to put every ounce of pressure on Obama that we can. I want 
him to know that my support depends on how he handles the drug war. 
If Obama plays reefer madness games none of his high flying notions 
will ever come to pass. Faithful handling of little things precedes 
greater deeds.

I'm fed up with being a criminal because a gang of self-interested 
hypocrites wants to exploit fiction based drug laws. I won't support 
these clowns no matter what mask they wear.

If you feel as I do let Obama know your position in no uncertain 
terms- we do not want decriminalization- we want full legalization of 
marijuana for adult use.

If Obama's position on marijuana does not change, we need to let him 
know that we are a constituency that will not support him while he 
denies justice to pot smokers.

Obama promised CHANGE and he better deliver.

We can hurt the Obama administration by voting opponents into office 
in the mid-term elections- this could sabotage his legislative plans, 
but we cannot afford to let him ignore us by blindly backing him 
before he gives us our marijuana free and clear.

Plenty of ammo provided by another stink-bomb of an Oped, this one just 
happens to be from a DEA agent. The Billings Gazette would looove to 
hear from lots of us! (my aunt Maxine lives there and she told me 
that...;)

Pile on...
