Whitehouse.gov show 'em we are serious!

Below is a link to the Office of Public Liaison and Inter-govermental affairs at whitehouse.gov

https://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/opl/

This is what it states on the website.

"The Office of Public Liaison & Intergovernmental Affairs (OPL-IGA) is the front door to the White House through which everyone can participate and inform the work of the President.

OPL-IGA takes the Administration out of Washington and into communities across America, stimulating honest dialogue and ensuring that America's citizens and their elected officials have a government that works effectively for them and with them.

OPL-IGA will bring new voices to the table, build relationships with constituents and seeks to embody the essence of the President's movement for change through the meaningful engagement of citizens and their elected officials by the federal government.

We'll be adding many more ways for you to interact with OPA-IGA at this page in the weeks and months ahead. In the meantime, please take a moment to share your thoughts using the form below."


The cannabis community needs to take full advantage of these types of things. We need to constantly inundate this administration with emails, letters, messages, etc. to make sure that our message stays fresh in their minds and to make them realize how serious we actually are. If we can sit around here and make posts about marijuana, then we can surely go to whitehouse.gov to make posts about marijuana also.

although this is a nice thing to be able to have somewhat more of a direct voice in legislation, I dont think any of us with what we do should go putting our personal info on a federal website along with our views on the legalization of cannabis. It just seems like a little bit of a bad idea to be a grower and an activist. Dont get me wrong every cause does need activists to be the face of the movement, just as every movement needs its shadow workers. If we go and mix the two its just asking to send our "activist" straight to a prison term. How well would this movement be going if we didnt have people like us to supply the movement? there wouldn't be a movement at all without what we nurture and love.

I agree with Canned. Weed should not be a class 1 drug in the same group with the likes of cocaine and heroin. I think that this new administration is much more grounded and "common people" than we have experienced before. I think that based in part because f what President Obama dealt with in the death of his mother and her on going illness, this administration JUST MIGHT be more willing to listen to the cries from the people he represents as well as the opinion of numerous doctors and other professionals about the beneficial effects of medical marijuana uses. Plus, you can't tell me the government doesn't ALREADY know this and participate in it's own growing operation. That has been shown over and over again. They just haven't figured out how to make money off of it to feed the government yet, so what is the benefit to them to remove it from the drug list and remove penalty for using, consuming and feeding and watering a plant that I AM himself put on this earth for the use of us, it's inhabitants. i for one have Cherokee Indian in my heritage, it grew wild in my grandmothrs back yard and my family passed a "Peace Pipe" I for one will be taking your suggestion Canned and will be sending my opinion to Washington, I can't guarantee if i say something, anything will get done, but i can guarantee if no body says anything, Nothing will get done. Maybe our country should take a peace pipe when dealing with our enemies and combatants. Maybe then everyone could just chill and listen to the other....just wishful thinking....Guess day dreaming is a side effect of chillin down here in my flowering room, with my girls, my glass of wine and my smoke before bed..........

Peace All.....

"...but i can guarantee if no body says anything, Nothing will get done." Very well said, Jayla

I have to reflect those famous preisdential words "The only thing we have to fear is fear it's self"

On the whole, small time growers have nothing to fear in reality. Keep your self secure, and fight the good fight. It's the noble as well as moral thing to do. It's the only way we will truly make strides in this struggle for freedom. I've talked to so so many people that don't even use cannabis that feel it should be legalized.

I feel like we're standing on the edge of a new era. The door of opporotunity is right in front of us, all we need to do is give that door a collective kick. This is OUR country! Those govenment gurus and political pricks work for US. If they choose not to, then THEY are un-American, and are flirting with losing their jobs.
As Jayla pointed out, cannabis has become a big part of American culture. It's BEEN a part of Native American for YEARS. If our govt thinks they're going to stop US from partaking of our herb in the privacy of our own homes they have another thing coming. They'll have to pry my cold dead hands from my bong. Period. We allow millions of deaths on a moral issue of tobacco and alcohol for the sake of greasing the system with very LARGE amounts of money. Death and money over morality. It's high time (pun intended) our govt pull their heads out of their greedy asses and do the right thing. Cannabis is far less damaging to our socoety than tobacco and alcohol. That's a FACT. If we can put a man on the moon, they CAN make money from legalized cannabis. Fact.

This is OUR country.

This is OUR time.

Stand up, America, and be HEARD!

WE have the power to bring about that change.

If you don't want to put all of your personal info on Whitehouse.gov, here is the phone number to the White House switchboard: 202-456-1414.

And their FAX: 202-456-2461.

The squeaky wheel gets the oil! Call Obama and tell him what you think. If the White House starts receiving thousands of calls about this issue, something might get done sooner.
