At 2 p.m. EST today, the White House will host its first ever #AskObama Twitter town hall. The question that's gotten retweeted the most? Whether the president would legalize marijuana.

I wouldn't blame you if your first reaction is "C'mon, America. Aim higher!" (So to speak.) But when you look closer at the question, it reads:
