      It sure did look like Obama would make a change back in the day but you can see what happens when you sit down with too many advisers…

      Here is another letter I sent to Senator Mikulski. . If you like it feel free to copy & paste. Add your personal touch.

      Honorable Senator Barbara Mikulski
      WASHINGTON, DC 20510

      Dear Honorable Senator Barbara Mikulski

      I have been a staunch supporter of your political career for years; since your time as a councilwoman for Baltimore. I commend you on all the good work you have done.

      My request today is for you to support HR 2306 bill which is for the decriminalization of Marijuana. My hope is that you get it on the floor to have it voted on. I believe it is time. We can’t afford to let marijuana be illegal any longer.There are some political leaders that have a complete deluded concept of marijuana user’s. Most marijuana user’s are just like you and I. They have a job, maintain a home and are hard working,tax paying,and are otherwise law abiding citizens.

      We need something to help pay down our national debt; and Marijuana is the huge key to our financial rescue. Marijuana is going to create millions of jobs and will reap billions of revenue. I am counting on you to see the bigger picture. I know this is something most Americans want. and we have been trying to get marijuana legal for many years.

      Thank you, and God Bless you and yours

      President Obama knows that the wayward government has no real evidence to support their position on Cannabis. He knows that the Cannabis law is based in the Jim Crow Laws of the past. He knows that the government has acted in a way that “shocks the senses of fair play.” when it come to this issue. He knows the law on cannabis is a Constructive Fraud placed upon the people of this country.
