Whichever candidate supports putting an end to marijuana prohibition will win my vote. So far it looks like Ron Paul is the man.

Yes indeed. We all pray that Bozo also announces the end of drug laws in the hope of getting your vote.

I agree. IF enough voters are stoned, he might have an outside chance of getting re-elected.

Clinton was the expert at that.

When he submitted that train-wreck of a health plan bill, 60 days too late, and then didn't do a thing to get it passed, he reminded his faithful lemmings that, "I said I would SUBMIT a bill. I never said it would pass."

If he did, it would be the only time.

Unfortunately, Obama has proven himself to be as much of a prohibitionist as any Republican.
I wonder, if the policies in place now that he refuses to change were in place when he was a teen, could he have been President? Of course not, since today's cannabis laws unfairly take away a person's right to work and obtain education funding as well. All because of a stigma planted 80 + yrs ago with the use of deception and inaccuracies all so a select few could profit.
Thank you Pres Obama for continuing the policy started by the racist Harry Anslinger and his band of corporate greedists.
