To the Obama campaign: I'm a republican, just like my parents. While on most issues I agree with McCain over Obama, there is one that is quite important to me, as well as thousands of others, and that is the candidates' position on Cannabis Decriminlization. At one point Obama said that in his opinion the war on drugs needed a second look. "We need to rethink and decriminalize our marijuana laws." I couln't agree more. It seems, unfortunately, that his views have changed during his campaign. It is clear that Obama is educated, on some level, of the real facts about marijuana. Him flip-flopping his view on marijuana decriminilizatin because of his campaign is unfortunate, but I feel that he has a realistic view over the subject. McCain has made his view on Marijuana laws quite clear. His ignorance in this area makes his ability to be a well decision-making president questionable. It seems he, as well as the majority of the nation who oppose marijuana decriminilization, bases his biased opinion on the innaccurate info the government and media have fed us over the decades instead of looking at the facts. I don't need to tell you the facts and arguments that you've heard before, but by looking at these FACTS, it makes one wonder why possession of a harmless drug (less harmful than tobacco products or alcohol) is considered a felony. Statistics of efforts to decriminalize marijuana make it easy to see that it is only a matter of time before it actually happens. I am hoping that if I were to vote for Obama this process will happen more quickly. Otherwise, we can waste more American tax dollars putting innocent people behind bars instead of focusing on *real* criminals.
