While I’m 100% pro-legalization, I’m glad to see that even someone against it like Ken Buck realizes it’s a state issue.
I really hope legalization passes in Colorado, Oregon, and Washington in November and that other states (California probably will) follow their lead very soon.
[/quote]I’m voting no on the Oregon measure. It’s the stupidest way to try to do this. It creates a new state board (unironically run by potheads), state-run pot shops, requires the state to teach the “real” truth about pot in schools (I’ll do that on my own, thank you) and even requires the state to support efforts to legalize pot outside of the state.
A lot of folks complain that it doesn’t limit the total amount a person may possess. I think that’s a ridiculous reason to vote against this measure. If it should be or is legal, who cares how much a person possesses. We don’t limit the amount of alcohol or tobacco a citizen may possess.
I favor legalizing it without the promotion and massive state involvement. Give me a better bill, one that potheads didn’t write. Apparently, they’re just proving their idiocy.
