That's how obama got elected. The only reason the marijuana bill is on the ballot in cali, is to get the stoners and ******s out to vote and of course they will vote liberal on everything else including the candidates. Even if that prop passes, it will be shut down by the feds before you even have time to light one up. Again, it's only there to get the uneducated voter to the polls. So do us all a favor, if you haven't taken the time to educate yourself, don't eff it up for the rest of the country by voting.
I agree about the uneducated voters. I think we should be free and be able to do what we want as long as we are not harming anyone else. I think marijuana should be legal because it doesn't make people go out and kill as some people would have you believe, if marijuana is illegal then alcohol should be to as it it the cause of far more crime and death (excluding the obvious crime of possession.) Neither party is for the legalization of marijuana, only a few candidates from each party support it (dems have only a couple more pro marijuana supporters than the republicans.) Both parties try to limit some of our freedom but the democrats want to limit much more of our freedom than republicans.
