The State of Union is approaching and we need to take this opportunity to speak up about ending the prohibition of cannabis


Tuesday Jan 25th: Immediately after the State of the Union, senior White House officials will take questions about issues covered in the speech live form the White House.
If the prohibition of cannabis isn't brought up, we need to be asking why not. If it is, we need to make sure we let the White House know this is what the American people want.
