Mr. President:

On your internet town hall meeting you said, “No to legalized marijuana.” I sure hate to hear you use the word legalize in this context. This is a scare word that Karl Rove, George W. Bush or Rush Limbaugh would use to scare parents. The word legalize is a blanket word that covers thousands of federal, state and local drug prohibition laws that prey on our most venerable, corrupt law enforcement, over burdened justice system, created a dangerous over populated prison system. They have also create a criminal environment here and in other countries. That do nothing to keep those same drug away from our children. I sure wish you could address these problems and assure every parent that we will do everything possible to help them keep drugs from their children.
