  1. These petitions do nothing except provide some false hope. Dont waste your time, if you truly want to impact change you dont do it by signing your name.
     
  2. He's not doing anything right, at all. He's a hypocrite. He's lied in the past and he'll continue to break "promises" he's made in the future.

    Petition don't change anything. This issue is not something that can be changed by a petition. It is merely a public opinion and it's been the same for years. With the internet, we have a better voice than recent generations who relied on news media for their stories and opinions. The change.org site is merely something to get a response from the White House when it reaches enough signatures. If they gave a shit about that, it would have changed long ago.
     
  7. I signed and didn't mind doing so since it took less than 1 min.
     
  8. Amen!
     
    Gandhi said "Be the change you wish to see". And we are doing that by refusing to give in to bullshit legislations, propaganda and bias, all while under enormous pressures from hypocrites who have not only done the same things....but far, far worse.
     
  9. With that said, I think we should keep going the way we have been. With two states having voted and passed full legalization, we get a chance to see the progress in real time. We get a glimpse on how it will be for other states and the other 48 states are looking at the recent measures in Washington and Colorado and taking note of the revenue and reform. This is the type of thing that will cause more states to react, and when enough states react with proper reform, it will cause a domino effect on the rest of the states, making federal law a joke and forcing their hand. The answer is not national reform, but baby steps with states that will have an ending result of national reform.
     
  10. Obama is probably very truthful with his statements about marijuana, i would not doubt that fact, the problem are lobbyists, mainly from pharmaceuticals and privately owned jails i imagine, that are giving the government big money to keep this shit illegal so they can continue to profit from it being prohibited. 
     
    Oh and "Signing a petition wont help!" Neither will being ignorant, gimme a fuckin break it takes 30 seconds. 
     
  11.  
    It still makes him a hypocrite. The fact that you said "giving government big money to keep this shit illegal" proves that a petition doesn't mean anything to them, money does. Money is the deciding factor and when they realize they will get more money from legalization rather than criminalization, they won't budge on their stance. A petition is not some magical document. It doesn't show any change, it is only an opinion on what we the people think, and it's pretty obvious that the government doesn't give a shit on what the people think.
     
  12. Agreed, but as long as weed is in that number 1 category all the advances could be undone too easily.....maybe it wouldn't happen, but the chance is there.....
     
  13.  
    I disagree; If he was put in a position where he could actually accomplish something like that i think he would but the major interests hes involved with say otherwise 
     
    Also, a petition is not a magical document but it does give people a voice who don't have one and even if it is bullshit, whats our alternative? dissenting on a marijuana forum? your opinions biased. 
     
    I think your just saying "Dont sign" because you have nothing intelligent to add to the conversation. 
     
  14. When did I say "don't sign?" I signed it myself but getting hopes up on a petition that have been posted time and time again and shot down time and time again, nothing will change. Our voice has been heard and our opinion on the matter polled numerous times. People overwhelmingly support decriminalization but at the end of the day, government has the final say. What is so hard to understand about that? They do not care about our opinions.
     
  15. I think his statement is a precursor to a major change during his second term.  I am most likely wrong (eternal optimist) but maybe there's a chance we will see cannabis removed from its schedule one status.  ::crossing fingers::
