This is the second year of the competition held by the popular activist website, and currently shows (as of 5pm, Saturday) the idea “Legalize the Medicinal and Recreational Use of Marijuana” leading the popular vote with 2,329 votes. Click here to see the latest votes for the most popular ideas.

The winning ten ideas will be presented to “representatives of the media, the nonprofit community, and to relevant officials in the Obama Administration”, according to’s FAQ. “After the announcement, will mobilize the full resources of our staff, our 1 million community members, and our extended network of bloggers to support a series of grassroots campaigns to turn each idea into reality.”

Last year, the marijuana legalization issue dominated the competition, receiving almost 20,000 votes and beating the second issue on the list, “Appoint Secretary of Peace in Department of Peace and Non-Violence,” by more than 4,500.

Pot legalization has ranked high in other online polls in the last year, and the issue was famously snubbed by the President at a Virtual Town Hall Meeting last March.

More from about this years competition:

Ideas for Change in America is a crowd-sourcing competition that empowers citizens to identify and build momentum around a diverse range of ideas for addressing the challenges our country faces.

From January – February 2010, more than 2,500 ideas were submitted and voted on by 100,000 people across the country. The top three rated ideas from each issue category, listed below, qualified for the final round.

Final round voting begins on March 1 and ends on March 12. Final round voting begins on March 1.

Sadly, when announced the winning ideas of last years competition, they presented them “in no particular order” and virtually buried the marijuana question. Hopefully, they will treat this year’s voters with a little more respect.

Marijuana activists recently teamed up with and scored a big win, successfully encouraging CBS executives to reverse their decision refusing to air a NORML advertisement supporting the legalization and taxation of pot.

    Obama has made it clear that he doesn’t care what Americans want. He has his “vision” of what he thinks this country should be and could give a damn what we have to say about it. Although I didn’t vote for him, or ever believe he was going to do half of the things he said he was going to do, I felt especially disappointed at his cavalier response to the #1 question on his first two televised “town hall” meetings (Will you legalize marijuana). I am convinced that our government is hopelessly addicted to the drug war, and it’s myriad revenue streams. However, I am certain that no matter how long they delay the inevitable end to the drug war that we the people will win, and reasonable drug-use will be a common fact of everyone’s lives.
