Final Round of Change.org Voting Starts Now!

Right now, the public’s call to “legalize the medicinal and recreational use of marijuana” is the most popular issue on the website. (A related question asking Obama to “end the war on drugs” is #4.) However, several other important issues are just a few votes behind, so it is vital that those of you reading this post take the time to log on to the Ideas for Change website and vote to make cannabis legalization the #1 issue in America!

To be fair to President-Elect Obama, he never pledged to legalize marijuana.

In short, to believe that the Obama team would have responded to the legalization question any other way was idealistic at best, and foolish at worst.
