The petition was prompted by discussions between SPARC/ARL and the administration's Science Advisor. The clear message was that Obamacorp is well aware of the access issue, and would be very receptive to a strong display of public support. You want realpolitik? With an election coming up, this is something Obama might just seize on for a populist play. What's not to like about getting fair value for gummint spending on science? No matter what you think of his reasons for doing it, this is a chance to get Obama to put some weight behind an important issue. (FWIW, I'm all for cannabis regulation.)
