Subject: Include a question about marijuana in the presidential debate
My friend Lanny, host of the show, Marijuana: Compassion & Common Sense
(www.kcaaradio.com) just created a petition that I urge you to sign and
The petition is addressed to Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr., Co-Chairman of
the Commission of Presidential Debates, asking him to include a
question about marijuana in the presidential debate.
It is outrageous that the presidential candidates keep ignoring an
issue that has been causing so much damage for so long, and that is
costing tens of trillions of dollars to the US tax-payer every single
year. Still, Obama laughs about the issue and Romney angrily refuses to
even talk about it.
60,000+ deaths in Mexico alone is not a joke!
Millions of lives destroyed by drug convictions, the vast majority
African-America or Latino, are not a prank!
Drug prohibition is a man-made disaster that has been spreading mayhem
and chaos over the planet for the past 100 years. The 41 years old War
on Drugs has failed. It is time to pull the plug on it and look for
more sustainable alternatives.
Seventeen states and the District of Columbia representing over a third
of the U.S. population have legalized the use of marijuana when
recommended by a physician. Six states have marijuana initiatives on
their November ballots (three legalization and three medical
marijuana). $20 billion is spent each year ensnaring over 850,000
Americans in the criminal justice system. Thousands of deaths occur on
the Mexican border every year. Countless more die in Guatemala,
Honduras and El Salvador. Even peaceful Costa Rica is affected.
What other issue impacts so many Americans at such a staggering cost in
dollars and lives and is so completely sidelined? Yet the only thing
President Obama and challenger Romney seem to agree on is to NOT talk
