Internet People Really Want President Obama to Legalize Marijuana


Earlier this month, the White House launched “We the People,” a website that allows citizens to create and sign petitions directed at the White House for issues they care about. Senior adviser David Plouffe said at the time, “If a petition gathers enough signatures, the White House staff will review it, make sure it gets to Obama Administration policy experts, and issue an official response. President Obama will even answer a few himself.” As of right now, three of the top six petitions demand the legalization of marijuana. [Ben Smith/Politico]
