Dear Mr. President

Please excuse the depature from topic. Below is a copy of an email I sent to the Whitehouse. I thought I would share it with you. We will return to our normal programming shortly.

Dear Mr. President,

Your government should be ashamed for the hard line stance it has taken towards the use of marijuana. Considering your personal history, you should know better than most that marijuana is basically a benign drug. Treating ordinary citizens like criminals goes against the very grain of conservative government. As a former Democrat who has promoted liberal causes, I would be genuinely grateful if you would pursue policies designed to get government out of our lives. Consider which is more harmful to young people, getting high with their friends or spending quality time in local, state and federal jails. Consider how lucky you yourself were not having had the pleasure of such an experience. Consider where you would be today if you had.
