No, not really. Because if the rest of the answer to the petition was real, you’d immediately make alcohol and tobacco illegal.
For example, how can you say, with dry eyes, that “marijuana use is a significant source for voluntary drug treatment admissions” and two paragraphs later that “we are improving our criminal justice system to divert non-violent offenders into treatment”
Ever heard of “self-fulfilling prophecies”?
Oh, and read the response to the “Under God” petition as well. So it’s official, whitehouse.gov petitions are nothing but mental masturbation. Pricks pretending to care.
