I posted an article previously urging TWB readers to sign the White House petition telling Vice President Joe Biden to respect state marijuana laws in Colorado and Washington. Below is the language of the petition, which currently has 16,730 of the 25,000 goal signatures. Please sign it today if you haven't already!:
Tell VP Biden to end his war on marijuana users and to respect the people of Colorado and Washington
On November 6, the people of Colorado and Washington state passed ballot measures to make the possession of marijuana legal for all adults and to regulate the sale of marijuana in a manner similar to alcohol.
Sadly, on Dec. 7, the New York Times reported that top level officials in the Obama administration are conspiring to undermine these historic victories.
Worse, an article published on the same day in Rolling Stone magazine indicated that a ringleader for this anti-marijuana activity is Vice President Joe Biden. A former top White House drug policy advisor was quoted in the article saying, "As long as [Biden] is vice president, we're very far off from legalization being a reality."
This is wrong. Mr. Biden should end his war on marijuana users and respect the voters of CO and WA.
