The current Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske is leaving his position soon, and President Obama will need to appoint a new Drug Czar. In a perfect world, he would just leave the position vacant and end the war on drugs. But, unfortunately, I think we all know that is not going to happen. The next best thing is to appoint someone who will use logic and science to make their decisions relating to the position. Below is a petition asking the White House to appoint Dr. Sanjay Gupta to be the nation's next Drug Czar:
"Current Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske was recently appointed to to the office of Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. His replacement has not yet been named."
"We the undersigned ask that a qualified medical doctor be chosen as his replacement in order to facilitate the president's public health based approach to drug control policy. We ask that the administration specifically appoint Dr. Sanjay Gupta to this office as he is one of the most qualified and renowned medical doctors in the nation."
