Fat lot of good that does these days lol. But I figured any chance we have, is worth the shot. I just wanted to share my letter with you guys. Mr. President, My name is [Zatyro] and I am but one of millions of supporters for Marijuana legalization. More specifically, Cannabis as a total economic and social makeover for the US. I am not going to waste your time by telling you all the economic reasons why Marijuana should be legalized as you are a man easily capable of the same intelligence or more as a bunch of "potheads." As citizens of this great nation, we have grown accustomed to our civil liberties. Great changes and reformations have been made in the past by self-sacrificing individuals to shape this country into a land of tolerance and freedom. You, yourself, are a shining example of how far this country has come in the past 60 years alone. In 1950, if one suggested a future president would be a black man, they would have been the laughing stock of the town and possibly faced imprisonment. This situation is equally important to the future of this country. You can not hide behind the propaganda anymore. The world knows these attacks on Marijuana are lies. You can not stall with public debate any longer. The Nation sees through this crystal clear cowardice easily. As I said before, you are a symbol of change for this country. A symbol of new beginnings and reform for the better. Too many of my brothers and sisters in the community have been jailed, humiliated, heavily fined, and essentially ostracized from the workforce over something as ignorant as the belief that Marijuana, in and of itself, causes harm to the community. Despite the fact that numerous tests, studies, experts, medical doctors, biologists, professors, and every day working class Joe's all find themselves led to to the same conclusion: That Marijuana is the least of our worries and does no damage, in any way, to anyone. Actually, all studies find quite the contrary. They find that Marijuana has shown great merit and value in the medicinal world. Look around you. See the martyrs in the media. See the citizens willing to be WRONGFULLY imprisoned for their right to simply govern what they do with their own body. See the families that get torn limb from limb by the DEA and face wrongful imprisonment for non-violent crimes. 45,000+ Marijuana offenders in Federal prisons are not with their families. 45,000+ Federal Marijuana offenders are being taken care of by taxpayer dollars, rather than being on the other side of things and SUPPLYING those taxpayer dollars. Reformation and regulation are knocking at your door and it is high time that we had a leader that would openly stand up for the rights of the people, rather than further the agenda of the politicians. IT IS OUR BODY. OUR RIGHT. OUR COUNTRY. OUR LIFE. The Cannabis subculture will NOT sit idly by and let the lies be spread anymore. We are tired of being discriminated against for our own, personal choices that affect no one but ourselves. You will soon be faced with a choice: Lie to the cameras and the people for the sake of the DEA's funding and let the imprisonment and civil disobedience continue, or be a LEADER and do what is right by the general population and go down in history for providing major contribution to ridding this nation of politicians who seek only to further their careers. Surely you understand that Marijuana Prohibition tears every fabric of Constitutional Rights that hold this country together? This is what we want, Mr. Obama. It is not the government's right to take these fundamental liberties from us. I urge you to watch "The Union - The Business Behind Getting High." It is a legalization documentary, easily found on You-tube. You, as the President of this country, owe it to all the people to be well-informed on the reality of this situation. If you take nothing from this letter but that, once again, please watch the documentary. You will find it unbiased, informative, and backed by medical and scientific evidence, professional opinion, and the general consensus of the vast majority. All facts in the video are easily verified through publicly available documentation. Please, Mr. President, help us as a nation stop this unnecessary and ineffective war on innocent taxpayers, voters, and soldiers. Help us end the war against our brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, and uncles. Help us to be the nation we should be. Help us bring the majority opinion of the public, finally, into Congress.
