White House Pretending To Listen

The White House invites people to submit petitions.  A group seeking the legalization of marijuana takes them up on it.  Their petition is far and away the most popular one submitted.

In response, the White House ducks, dodges, and, frankly, lies by misdirection.  They say they want to make science-based decisions, which is a great standard to strive for.  But then they use bad science at best.

Why even bother acting like you want our opinion?  If the goal is to make it feel like we’re being heard when you have no intention of playing fair or listening, then you’re not only dishonest but you’re treating your constituency like we’re idiots.
