    Also, I think that a reminder is in order.

    Decriminalized is different than legalized.
    I may be wrong.

    Re: Proposition 19 to legalize marijuana defeated....

    I was pleased with how this initiative went. Fact is 46% of the people who voted yesterday vote for Legalization, that's a pretty damn high number and should be sending elected officials a strong message. It will find it's way onto the ballot again in 2012 and it will be a better run campaign and it will probably pass on the second go around. I didn't expect the polls to be this close after seeing the exit polls. Conservatives and people over 60 were really against this proposition. Speaking of which, why are conservatives, in general, against Marijuana legalization? Is it not a conservative issue, why do they want government telling the people what they can put into their bodies?

    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Stoners are losers. Losers don't vote. Is it really a surprise this was defeated?

    It doesn't matter anyway. Don't you pay a $5 fine for getting caught with it anyway in California? What's the point.

    What an effed up state. LOL

    Sadly, this sums up the basic argument many supporters of prohbiition have. How they are winning this debate is beyond me sometimes.
    Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison - Unknown.

    But am I truly a loser because I take a hit sometimes, watch family guy, eat some cookies and go to bed? Admittedly I've had my fair share of the Mairy Jaine, yet can still form a coherant sentence, still have a job which I am damned good at, go to the gym and get woman. Hoorah!

    Also since I don't smoke it now, but probably would if it was legal, these wouldn't be an extra cost to me. Plus people I know who do smoke, would probably take that cost, over having to deal with drug dealers.
    When you're paying $15 for a watered down joint, you won't be saying that.

    To be perfectly honest. Rather do that then have to deal with drug dealers.

    Well, carry on, then.

    I mean, what is there to life more than that?
