So I’m sitting here listening to these nit wits- well, maybe more drifting in and out than listening— but either way, I’m listening to them go on and on about how bad all the others are going to be and how we should pick them because the others are no good. I’ve noticed over the weeks only 1, maybe 2, that actually stick to speaking of the good they plan to do versus the bad their opponent will do.
Thinking along the lines of the good they will do, I start to wonder; “Hmm, which one will actually do good by pot?” my wife jumped and said “What? Did you say something?” Nah….my bad, just thinking out loud again. Apparently. So I start to think about it again. I mean, I’m pretty high right now and I like that, I’ve been doing it a long time now. I’m accustomed to it. I would like to keep doing it. I do what I need to do and I’m not hurting anyone and there are many like me. Some people drink, I like to smoke since I can function. So who, out of these people, will stand up for my right as a grown adult to enjoy myself? Or at least for a sick person to treat themselves? Who, out of these candidates is going to be my best ally in the war against me not being high? I’m pretty sure I already knew who I was going to support, for various other reasons, but I really couldn’t tell you right off hand where they stand on marijuana legalization.
So now a little paranoia pokes it’s head in and I start to think that if I don’t know about the one I was going to vote for, what about the others? It would be bad enough to have someone in office who is “not good” or indifferent for pot but even worse to have someone who is bad for legalization. The wrong person in office could possibly take us backwards. So in the spirit of making an informed decision plus just quenching the curiosity, I decided to do a little research and find out where each of them stand on marijuana legalization. Below is some of the information I came across to get an idea on where they stand and my opinion on each. Feel free to do your own research.
