#AskObama Twitter town hall ignores flood of marijuana legalization questions
Republicans were not the only ones flooding President Barack Obama with questions during his “#AskObama” Twitter town hall; the event also generated a huge response from those opposed to the war on drugs.
Data gathered by TwitSprout showed the most retweeted question for Obama was about the legalization of marijuana.
“Would you consider legalizing marijuana to increase revenue and save tax dollars by freeing up crowded prisons, court rooms?” was retweeted 4911 times, according to the analytics service.
A question about letting the Bush tax cuts expire came in second place, with only 1800 retweets.
Laugh you gotta love calling something a “Town Hall” and then ignoring what the “constituents” want to talk about. I mean, we all know that “Town Hall” means “Marketing Session” but damn man.
