Marijuana Pwns The Internet

Dear Mr. Obama and Mr. Harper, the Internet has spoken and the message is clear (in all caps): END MARIJUANA PROHIBITION!

Yes, the Pot People run this digital bitch.

In the past week, the marijuana legalization issue has dominated online polls directed at heads of state on both sides of the US-Canada border.

On the US’s side, Change.org’s “Idea’s for Change in America” was, for the second year in a row, pwned by “Legalize the Medicinal and Recreational Use of Marijuana”, which came in first place. I would give you the exact figures on the win, but Change.org has stashed the results until they announce the winners on Monday.

On the Canadian side, in a YouTube sponsored poll called “Your Interview With Prime Minister Harper“, questions related to marijuana rank #1, #2, #3, #4, and #10 – with questions about Bill C-15 and mandatory minimums ranking #6, #7 (click here to see the whole list). Question #10 asks the Conservative PM, “It’s been a couple of months since the US asked Canada to deport Marc Emery, the prince of pot. This decision seems politically motivated. Will you hand him over to the US, even if you’re not allowed to deport someone for political opinion?”

The message couldn’t be more clear to Obama and Harper: your fellow countrymen and countrywomen (at least those with Internet access) want to see an end to this War on Herbs.

Will you take action on these issues as promised in the preambles to these online polls, or at the very least, address the fact that Netizens are crying for a “Change” to marijuana laws?

Probably not. But we’ll be back next year.

    He is just frustrated and taking it out on us.

    Pray for his sole. He will need the prayer.

    copy the screenshot and distribute it widely so we don’t hear anything about how “the issue ranked fairly highly” like Obama said last time. This time it ranked THE HIGHEST!
