Wonder how he is going to tip-toe around the legalization of marijuana this time.. If its anything like the last youtube 'Interview with the President'.

Seriously, about time something is done about this.

Personally, if I were him, I would leave it up to the individual states to decide. Just too much of a divide in the country right now to make a federal decision about it.

I expect a repeat on the State of the Union, so I am more curious to see whether the G+ servers crash or not.

Yea, he will be answering questions from the public. As long all the ones asking the important questions are censored. The marijuana questions being pulled is very annoying. Though, Im sure more than just the marijuana legalization question has been censored/filtered.

California and many other states have already made this decision, it is the federal laws that need changing, not state laws. Besides, didn't Obama's administration already say they would remove any questions regarding medical marijuana? God forbid he answer a real question!

"Instead, only five fellow American questioners have been invited to participate directly with the Commander in Chief personally. "

By which, anyone who followed his last campaign knows, means "prewritten easy questions with prepared answers", because Obama doesn't need to repeat "spread the wealth" in a campaign year.

50%+ support its legalization, 85%+ support if for medical use.
some states ok it for medical use, but because of federal laws its still illegal for them to use it.

all we need to do to eliminate that is cut military spending in half, and make more cost effective decisions with the money we do spend, and we may double china...

but you have to understand, america doesn't take a profit from taxes, they have to spend every cent somewhere, so the best we could do is hit 0, no surplus not debt.

Yeah I 100% agree. And I should have been more clear in what I said. They should take the drug off the Controlled Substances Act, and remove any other federal regulations banning its use. Instead, let the individual states decide whether they want marijuana legalized or not. I have a hunch most states will, but some of the super-conservative states will be very resistant to the legalization of it. But if the people in that state don't want it, then fine.
