In 1996, California legalized medical marijuana at the ballot box. We were told dogs would sleep with cats, rats with human brains would be developed (oh, sorry, that's Christine O'Donnell NOW); everyone would be driving stoned; nurses would be stoned when you come out of surgery; the world would end. None of that happened, of course, and all is moving along smoothly.
Now that a legalization for ALL purposes is on the ballot, the same old tired nonsense is being trotted out. Take a look.
Simultaneously, we refuse to take "personal responsibility" (where are Republicans when you need them?) for the havoc we are creating in Mexico, where people are dying by the thousands; an entire town's police force just quit today -- all to satisfy OUR demand for drugs. And, the government (where is my "freedom" and "liberty" now you Tea Partiers?) says "take our drugs -- don't take yours." "Our drugs are making multi-nationals fabulously wealthy -- have YOU take YOUR Viagra or Cialis today?"
Can we just grow up please? Admit prohibition does not work (just ask Al Capone) and let's take a mature approach to marijuana? And stop the killing in Mexico?? After all, I am pro-life!
