If Obama actually wants to appeal to voters who care about marijuana, instead of appearing in a stupid video, maybe he should try simply being less horrible on the issue. For example Obama could take up the petition several governors have signed to have marijuana rescheduled. At a bare minimum Obama could publicly endorse the idea of medical marijuana. This would be a real symbolic move that should carry zero political risk, since 81 percent of Americans already support medical marijuana.
It would be remarkably easy for Obama to take actions that would prove he would at least be less awful than Mitt Romney on the issue of marijuana, but so far his administration’s behavior has been so bad Obama has failed to even clear that low bar.
