Questions for Obama

January 25, 2011
By

It’s already been discussed some here on the comment threads, but YouTube is once again collecting questions for the President.

Who knows what they’ll end up letting through, and who knows whether he’ll give a serious answer, but if you’re interested in the exercise, here’s the site.

One of the better questions is from LEAP:

As a police officer, I saw how waging the war on drugs has cost a trillion dollars and thousands of lives but does nothing to reduce drug use. Should we discuss legalizing marijuana and other drugs, which would eliminate the violent criminal market?

In the search box on the right, type in “as a police officer” and you should easily find this one, so you can vote favorably for it.

Feel free to check out any others about drug policy as well.

Note: there are some glitches (intentional?) in the search engine. Marijuana and cannabis come up with no valid questions, yet there are currently valid questions with those terms (search drug policy, for example, or just look at the most popular questions).

  • I wish I could share this on FB to all my liberal friends..there is no FB share button or I would. This is exactly what we have to look forward to. Maybe the Liberals should also be told that the Greek are also starting to eat the family dog as a last resort.

      By no means in the current crisis a fight between liberal and conservative ideology.  Neither liberals nor conservatives create the current “live beyond your means and let the market sort out the rest” mess.
      This was all the work of the “neo-liberals” and “neo-conservatives.”
      Both are two halves of the same ideology that has brought us here today.
      You need to wake up. Both Democrats and Republicans have opened the door for this firestorm. Stop supporting one and attacking the other. That’s the pointless treadmill that both want you to be on. You want to send your FB friends something? Tell them you’re thinking about them, and that you’ll stand with them when the crisis comes. United. Kind of like Americans.
