DC MARIJUANA TOP QUESTION FOR OBAMA

When the White House asked YouTube viewers to submit questions for President Obama’s live, online chat on Monday, most questions were about the administration’s marijuana policy. Based on popularity, 18 of the top 20 questions concerned the nation’s war on pot smokers.

Following the President’s State of the Union address, the White House invited voters to submit questions to the president via YouTube.

Viewers voted on the 133,216 questions submitted, based on thumps-up or thumps-down. Eighteen of the twenty most popular questions concerned the Administration’s marijuana policies.

Sadly, Mr. Obama did not answer any marijuana questions on Monday. Perhaps he can’t spend the political capital, or the poll numbers aren’t there for this issue.

Many people suspect that Obama would support loosening of criminal penalties for marijuana, if the time was right. But if he won’t take questions, we’ll never know.

Compare Obama’s response to that of golfer Matt Every, reported here earlier:
