Change.gov is Open for Questions

A few weeks ago the Obama transition team started taking questions from the public about the issues most important to them. A question about legalizing marijuana came in a #1 and 16 of the top 50 questions out of over 10,000 were about marijuana or the drug war. Despite this issue dominating the question poll we received a curt, short, non-answer.

Well yesterday the Open for Questions opened up again and the sheer number of questions pertaining to marijuana, medical marijuana, the drug war and the prison crisis is overwhelming, to say the least.

I would like all of my readers to take a moment and vote the questions about marijuana and the drug war UP!. You'll have to create an account.

Once you have created an account use the search function and search for 'caught'. My question about Obama's past drug use is there. Vote it up by clicking the check mark. Also search for 'Ethan Nadelmann' and vote that question up as well. Then search for 'marijuana' and vote all of the good questions up.

I've noticed a number of questions from Alabamians about marijuana...Good on Ya for doing that!!

The question poll will close tomorrow Dec. 31 so get on over there and let your voice be heard.

Search for 'caught'. One of my questions will come up under that. Then search for Ethan Nadelmann, marijuana, and drug war and that should bring up everything relevant that needs a vote.

Loretta: Thought you'd be interested in this book, which is particularly applicable today. Its only a short drive from Auburn to Alex City, so I hope to meet you one day.

The Economics of Prohibition is a great book, written by a big fan and
supporter of the Alabama homebrewing community. Please
the blog post I just published on the Auburn Brew Club's website.

Hey John,

I have that book and it is a great one. Dr. Mark Thornton is a good friend of mine. A really great guy. I'll check out the blog post and will give you a holler next time I am down Auburn way and maybe we can get a cup of coffee or a beer.
