  1. It sure did look like Obama would make a change back in the day but you can see what happens when you sit down with too many advisers…

  2. Time to get rid of this golden child and hire someone who will actually do something about the failed drug war.

  3. Contact your legislators do it NOW send letters! They don’t have to be perfect just try to get your point across as well as you con.
    Raise your voice it is a Powerful thing!
    Here is another letter I sent to Senator Mikulski. . If you like it feel free to copy & paste. Add your personal touch.
    Honorable Senator Barbara Mikulski
    WASHINGTON, DC 20510
    Dear Honorable Senator Barbara Mikulski
    I have been a staunch supporter of your political career for years; since your time as a councilwoman for Baltimore. I commend you on all the good work you have done.
    My request today is for you to support HR 2306 bill which is for the decriminalization of Marijuana. My hope is that you get it on the floor to have it voted on. I believe it is time. We can’t afford to let marijuana be illegal any longer.There are some political leaders that have a complete deluded concept of marijuana user’s. Most marijuana user’s are just like you and I. They have a job, maintain a home and are hard working,tax paying,and are otherwise law abiding citizens.
    We need something to help pay down our national debt; and Marijuana is the huge key to our financial rescue. Marijuana is going to create millions of jobs and will reap billions of revenue. I am counting on you to see the bigger picture. I know this is something most Americans want. and we have been trying to get marijuana legal for many years.
    Thank you, and God Bless you and yours

  4. President Obama knows that the wayward government has no real evidence to support their position on Cannabis. He knows that the Cannabis law is based in the Jim Crow Laws of the past. He knows that the government has acted in a way that “shocks the senses of fair play.” when it come to this issue. He knows the law on cannabis is a Constructive Fraud placed upon the people of this country.

    You must have some really good shit – because – there’s absolutely “nothing honorable” about Barbara Mikulski.

    Hello Road Runner
    I am sorry you feel that way about Barbara Mikulski. However, no one is perfect and everyone is entitled to their opinion. I don’t agree with you. I wonder about people who are so negative about others. I think you are not able to give even a part of your real name because you are suspect.I think she has done as good a job. She deserves the respect anyone else does. As far as addressing her as Honorable Barbara Mikulski, that is the proper way to address a letter or communication to one of our elected officials. FYI:
    Thank you and God bless you and yours
