Has anything been posted about the WH Petition thing they're
going to offer? I've looked but can't find it.

If I understand it correctly, anyone will be able to submit/post a petition on whitehouse.gov, and it's up to the sponsors to get people to sign.

Those with a valid subject (as opposed to Free Pot Brownies For All Americans or something like that) and receives support, will be forwarded to the "appropriate" area for submission to POTUS.

I think that's how it will work.

If it's viable, I think it would be great because every time I sign a petition I wonder who, if anybody, finally sees it.

What do you guys know about it? Thanks! :hi:

2. Thanks! I can never seem to find my way around that site, and I'll
probably find it's on the front page! :eyes:

Thanks for the links!

What do you think of it, blogslut?

5. It has potential
Then again, when Obama for America tried something like this, the place was flooded with marijuana legalization zealots.

*Note* I'm all for the decriminalization/legalization of pot but sheesh, there's other stuff that's pretty important too.

Beck to the petition site, I'm not sure exactly how the signature thing works - whether they're expecting physical signature or virtual ones or both.

3. MoveOn.org also started a petition site
SignOn.org

There are already petitions up for signing.
