If one thing ought to be undeniably clear by now, it's that the President just loves being lobbied for marijuana legalization. That's why he keeps hosting popularity contests for political issues on the internet, and inviting the decidedly predictable chorus of calls for ending the war on drugs. So, in order to ensure that his next such event is similarly well attended, the President is asking us to join him for a live 4/20 celebration on Facebook that you don't want to miss!
The purpose of the event is to discuss ideas to "help our economy grow," and you know exactly what that means. As usual, the President will be taking questions from the public, which you can email or post directly on this page. There's no voting this time (I can't imagine why), but the Facebook page is already heating up with discussion of drug policy reform, so let's get in there and show the strength of our movement yet again.
Obviously, the President wouldn't be holding this event on 4/20 if he didn't want to discuss marijuana policy with us. Right?
