I received the following e-mail and thought it was worth passing along. Voters need to know where candidates stand on current marijuana policy in America:
There has been a lot of discussion about marijuana policy during the 2016 presidential race, but there are still some questions that the candidates need to address.
In order to get some answers, we have partnered with Change.org for the launch of ChangePolitics, a mobile elections platform that enables voters to engage with the candidates on the issues they care about by asking and upvoting questions.
Help us get the major-party candidates on the record by upvoting MPP’s marijuana policy questions at ChangePolitics.org. The candidates will respond to the questions that receive the most votes!
- Do you think seriously ill people should be allowed to access medical marijuana if their doctors recommend it?
- Do you think it should be a crime for adults to consume marijuana responsibly? Why?
- If elected, how would your administration address the current tension between state and federal marijuana laws?
- Do you think marijuana prohibition has been more effective than alcohol prohibition, less effective, or equally effective?
If you’d like to see the presidential candidates answer these questions, please visit
Here’s to a successful 2016; cheers!
