you guys remember signing that petition to legalize marijuana on the petition section of the white house website right? well just wait until you hear the response they sent us....
well first of all, they didnt make the kind of address I thought they would. they sent us an email on their views. second, (as expected) nobody even considered changing their minds whatsoever even after seeing all of the signatures on all 8 marijuana legalization petitions that made it past 5000 signatures. not ONLY this, but for every response they have to all of the petitions, they show no effort whatsoever at changing ANY of their policies. so at what point do you guys want to start changing our country? because this is complete horse shit and im tired of being pushed around by our government that doesnt help anybody but the corporate owners who are sponsoring these politicians.
if you havent done anything to help change our government in anyway (clicking a button on a website to put your name down on a virtual piece of paper doesnt count) then quit your fucking complaining. go do something about it. stop posting highdeas saying 'when weeds legalized' and go do something to legalize it.
my plans? i say the first saturday of every month, we should ALL gather in D.C. and protest. dont do anything illegal their because then they have a right to arrest us. a peaceful protest. cant make it to D.C.? then protest in a big city near you. but jesus christ lets do something because sitting around and waiting for other people to do something to solve our problems (which is what most of us are doing currently) wont change anything as you can see
