Thats’ what Medical Marijuana needs – the Ear of the man in charge
Theres’ also a bus tour which is trying to get Mr Obama’s’ Endorsement to assist in the Federal decriminalization of Medical Marijuana. Clearly this is an issue which everyone can get behind. One of Mexico’s’ greatest poets lost his son to the drug violence in Mexico; which is fueled by the consistent demand for illegal drugs. We cannot forget that the Fast and Furious gave a huge cache’ of weapons to Mexican drug gangs – courtesy of the US Government.
The war on drugs is a complete and utter failure; It’s Time to End it Now Mr Obama. Prison space should be for criminals, not patients
A peace caravan led by Mexican activists has kicked off a month-long journey across the United States to call for an end of the U.S.-backed drug war. The caravan will criss-cross some 20 states to “call for change in the bi-national policies that have inflamed a six-year Drug War, super-empowered organized crime, corrupted Mexico’s vulnerable democracy, claimed lives and devastated human rights on both sides of the border.” The caravan is organized by Mexican poet-turned-activist Javier Sicilia, whose 24-year-old son, Juan Francisco, was murdered by drug traffickers last year. Javier Sicilia joins us from the tour, which has stopped in Phoenix, Arizona

AMY GOODMAN: Finally, Javier Sicilia, you’re making your way from Los Angeles. Today you’re in Phoenix. You’re moving on to Texas. Your journey, where it is, and your message for President Obama? You will end up in Washington, D.C. How many people are joining you along the way?
JAVIER SICILIA: [translated] Well, we hope that many people will join us. And from this program, we’re calling on people to come together with us. We are going to Washington, and hopefully many people will come to Washington with us in order to place these questions, these issues, as a priority on the political agenda. I want to ask people to join us. You can send a peace message via text. There are things that the president, that President Obama himself, can do without having to go through Congress in order to control the merchants of death who sell assault weapons, deadly weapons that are sold illegally to Mexican murderers.
People can send a message of solidarity by sending a text to 225568, and in that way adding their signature, their solidarity, so we can take that message to President Obama and let him know that we have the support among the people for him to be able to make a change, given his capacity as president of the republic of the United States.

A coalition calling for an end to the war on drugs began its monthlong campaign Sunday in San Diego that will take it to more than 20 U.S. cities.
More than 200 people gathered at a park on the U.S.-Mexico border as part of a movement known as the “Caravan for Peace with Justice and Dignity” that includes nearly 100 organizations.
The effort is led by Mexican peace activist Javier Sicilia, whose son was killed by drug gang members last year. Sicilia and others want to draw attention to what they say are misguided anti-drug policies in both the U.S. and Mexico. They estimate that tens of thousands of lives in Mexico have been lost because of the war on drugs.
“We will travel across the United States to raise awareness of the unbearable pain and loss caused by the drug war — and of the enormous shared responsibility for protecting families and communities in both our countries,” Sicilia said.
Sicilia has fought corruption and called for the resignation of top Mexican government officials. Caravan organizers said instead of curbing drug use or supply, the war on drugs has enriched drug traffickers and contributed to an increase in money laundering.
They also said more deaths have occurred over the past six years since the Mexican government launched an offensive on drug cartels.
“What we are trying to do is raise the level of conversation around this topic,” said Ted Lewis, one of the caravan’s organizers. “We’re trying to have a bi-national conversation and impact.”
Caravan leaders said they support reforms on weapons smuggling to Mexico and suspending U.S. funding of Mexico’s military.
Throughout the trip, which will end Sept. 12 in Washington, D.C., the caravan will be joined by police officers and other law enforcement officials who say the drug war has been a failure, as well as parents and family members who have lost loved ones either to drugs or drug-related violence.
America is sick of financing the drug barons literally. The voice of the people is calling for Decriminalization country-wide. There is no reason for 800 thousand plus individuals to go to jail each year for Medical Marijuana. Especially when they are legally permitted to use it under state laws. It is only the Federal bureaucracy that stands between legal and incarcerated.
Mr Obama Tear Down This Wall and Let America Have It’s Meds, NOW !
