“Completely Ignoring Our Valid Questions Is Deeply Disrespectful”

That's from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition spokesperson Stephen Downing's “Silence Says a Lot: An Open Letter to Google About Marijuana Legalization”, after legalization-related questions were omitted from a recent YouTube- and Google Plus-enabled public chat with president Obama:

“Eighteen of the 20 top vote-getting [YouTube] questions were on drug policy; mine was the highest-ranked video question on the entire site and the second-highest vote-getter overall, trailing only a text question about online copyright infringement ...

[But] Google didn't present the president with my question. And your host, Steve Grove, didn't say one word during the entire interview about any of the other popular marijuana and drug policy questions.

Instead, you decided to spend several minutes allowing participants to ask the president of the United States to weigh in on truly important issues like... late-night snacking, dancing, celebrating wedding anniversaries and playing tennis.”

Here is the question that shall not be asked nor answered.
