The Hawaii branch of Americans for Safe Access, an advocacy
organization for medical cannabis patients, and drug policy
reformists respectfully request that President Barack Obama make the
following New Year's resolutions:

Use his executive powers to move cannabis to a Schedule 2 drug so
that doctors can prescribe it. It is beneficial for numerous
conditions and diseases. Compassion and logic prompt this order.

Decriminalize small amounts of cannabis in order to cut the deficit
and put an end to making criminals of otherwise law-abiding citizens.

Order that the Rev. Roger Christie now being unconstitutionally
denied bond in the Honolulu Federal Detention Center be offered bail
so that he may return to his beloved Big Island ohana and prepare for
his trial.

A recent Gallup poll showed the American majority supports cannabis
legalization. Implementing these resolutions would not harm his
re-election campaign. Plus it would be the right thing to do.
