Want to See Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) Ask President Obama a Question? (Action Alert)
In an ongoing effort by the White House to engage the public via the internet, President Obama will answer questions from YouTube users in a live-streaming event this Thursday, January 27, two days after his annual State of the Union address.
LEAP speaker MacKenzie Allen, a retired deputy sheriff, wrote in to ask:
“As a police officer, I saw how waging the war on drugs has cost a trillion dollars and thousands of lives but does nothing to reduce drug use. Should we discuss legalizing marijuana and other drugs, which would eliminate the violent criminal market?”
YouTube has stated that the president will answer the questions that receive the most votes. LEAP’s question is currently among the top-voted entries. Let’s keep it going!
