Dems to cultivate pot vote
cures cancer, you know...


Democratic strategists are studying a California marijuana-legalization initiative to see if similar ballot
measures could energize young, liberal voters in swing states for the 2012 presidential election...
Democratic strategists liken the marijuana effort to the 2004 ballot drives to ban gay marriage in Ohio
and 10 other states. Whether those measures helped Der Monkey Bush win that year remains open to debate,
as turnout was high even in states without the issue on the ballot. But many conservatives say the measure
drove thousands to the polls in Ohio, the election's central battleground, where Monkey won by just two
percentage points and a little help from a crooked Ohio Secretary of State, one Kenneth Blackwell.

"Now, some Democratic strategists say marijuana legalization could do the same for their party...

Surveys suggest California voters under 30 years old are more likely to vote this year than under-30s
in other states. People in that age group make up 11% of California voters likely to turn out in November
 - compared with 8% of the likely electorate or less in Illinois, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Michigan,
all of which have competitive statewide elections. In the last midterms, in 2006, voters under 30 were 6.5%
of the California electorate, according to data compiled for the non-partisan Field Poll."

Why is America so afraid to deal with medical science and the facts?

Hell, if nothing else, legalize it in one state and after two years, look at the data and see if crime
went up or down in that state, same for ER visits, spousal abuse cases, DWIs, the jobless rate, etc.

<>If that state breaks even (unlikely) you keep pot legal because of the hundreds of millions of tax dollars
legalization would provide.  What's most likely is that crime, especially violent crime, would go down,
that's a bonus, and the fact that you have all those extra millions is a second bonus.

If the crime rate goes up, that tells us something else, but that won't happen.

America - we don't fix our problems,
we ask the insane to tell us what The Ghost wants us to do.
