I'm sure some of you know that President-Elect Obama had set up a system for people to
ask a question of him and his administration relating to things they
will make a priority during the beginning and duration of Obama's
presidency. People were allowed to click a check or x to reply as to
whether they approved of the question. The number one question as of
the close of voting was this
"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.?"
Additionally 16 of the top 50 questions pertained to the failed
drug policy in the US. Most of those questions were about pot. There is
a blog post coming in the next few days from the Obama camp. I'm
curious to see how they address these questions. I'll post the blog from Obama's people as soon as they write it.
