On Thursday of last week the Obama transition team website Change.gov began taking questions from the public about what things needed changing the most in this country. I am very proud to announce that out of the top 10 questions the following question was #1.
Currently in the lead:
"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.?"

And this question came in at #7.
13 states have compassionate use programs for medial Marijuana, yet the federal gov't continues to prosecute sick and dying people. Isn't it time for the federal gov't to step out of the way and let doctors and families decide what is appropriate?"
Here is the list of questions.

Since its launch yesterday, the Open for Questions tool has processed over 600,000 votes from more than 10,000 people on more than 7,300 questions. Voting will come to a close Friday, December 12th, at 12:00 a.m. EST, so that we can prepare answers to some of the most popular questions.
I am eagerly anticipating the answers to both of these questions. Great job everyone who participated and made these questions a big part of the top ten. Way to get the right attention focused on both of these important issues.
