Presidential Cannabis


Participants in Obama’s Open for Questions website forum selected marijuana legalization as the number one issue for the incoming president.

A total of 7,300 questions were asked by 10,000 participators who voted over 600,000 times in a twenty four hour period.  In addition to being the highest voted, there was another cannabis related question in the top ten, a total of six in the top twenty, and several other high ranking questions raising issues of legalization, decriminalization, policymaking, and medical use.  The persistence of these questions reflect how important the issues raised are to a number of Americans who want to address marijuana reform as a means to positive change.
