  1. Guatemala will continue to spiral down into deeper and deeper depths of corruption unless the USA end the limitless fortune available to drug traffickers. Entire countries in Latin America are going out of control and will evolve into strong enemies against the values that the United States was founded upon unless this war ends. Cultivate allies next door not assassins and orphans!

  2. My governments job is to protect and defend the constitution of my United States of America, to protect the liberties of its citizens, and to present policy that maximizes the safety, minimizes the violence, encourages economic growth, removes obstacles that inhibit our rights, and help us create and maintain a healthy environment to raise our children. The illegal drug war does none of that. The illegal drug war was introduced and maintained by self interested corporate criminals to protect their own industries. In the interest of the health of our citizens, economy, and people’s around the globe this stranglehold on liberty, and the lies that perpetuate it must stop now, or we will inevitably pay an even more disastrous price, till it has been brought down by its own weight and dysfunction.

  3. State’s rights are O.K. when states are RIGHT, and in the case of cannabis & the war on drugs, these two states were RIGHT! Please Mr. Obama, follow your heart on this one and LEGALIZE EVERYWHERE! Peace!

  4. The war is far from over and it is the feds who are a small minority. The people have seen beyond all the lies. It is a government of the people and for the people. Cannabis is the most useful plant on the planet. Food, clothing, shelter, energy, medicine insight. Way back in 1972 the Shafer Commission held extensive hearings on marijuana and determined that it was not such a threat, that adults should be able to use the plant in the privacy of their homes and that distribution of a small amount should not be a crime.

    1. Thank you for your feedback Alexander
      I am trying to build a coalition as we speak to get various organizations behind this initiative. We can then approach AVAAZ. It is easy to start a petition on AVAAZ, but it is difficult to get their support. Without their support, the vast majority of petition fizzle.
      Don’t forget, the election results came just 36 hours ago! Building coalitions take time but I thought it was important to get the ball rolling right away.

  5. Mr. President,

    Please step up to the plate and stand firm on respecting the rights of citizens to use Cannabis.

    Thank you for your Admirable service as President to Americans
