The DNC has announced that one of the planks for the Democratic policy platforms is going to embrace gay marriage. That's fine. I have no issue with that at all. However, I feel that that they are missing out on connecting with a large portion or the population by not addressing Medical Marijuana. This is a much more important issue for the nation than gay marriage, but that group is very vocal and out front getting attention. The health of millions of Americans is at risk. President Obama stated that he would loosen enforcement which happened for a while but now his administration is reversing that policy and intimidating those who have abided by the regulations. They should have a plank approving Medical Marijuana and changing the Drug Schedule to remove marijuana from the ridiculous Class 1 drug. We need to make some noise soon. I have sent an email to the White House stating the above. We need more people willing to make a ruckus. Yes, they now have my email address but I don't care. I'm legal and I've already done my time for past infractions for the cause. If there is anyone who feels that Medical Marijuana has as much a place on the platform as gay marriage, I urge you to speak out. There is still time before the convention to get some action. I say "Democratic" because I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell that the Republicans would do it.
