    Arizona voters approve medical marijuana measure

    (CNN) -- By a narrow margin of about 4,300 votes, Arizona voters approved a ballot measure that would legalize medical marijuana, state election officials said Sunday.

    With all precincts reporting, the "yes" votes on Proposition 203 have 50.1 percent of the vote to 49.8 percent of "no" votes, according to unofficial results posted on the Arizona Secretary of State's website. More than 1.6 million votes were cast.
    They say that California is a leader, when it comes to voting initiatives. When they passed property tax reform, the rest of the nation soon followed. Now, it seems, the rest of the nation, in fits and starts, is beginning to follow California on another important issue, that of marijuana.

    Yea, I know, I know, California is full of Liberals, but sometimes they get it right, and other states follow. Kudos, Californians, and kudos to you too, Arizona, for another victory against the War on Drugs and Reason, and for giving a big, fat, middle finger to Federal domination of an issue that is none of it's damn business.

    It doesn't matter. The federal government will keep doing its own thing regardless of state rights.

    Very nice to see this pass. I never understood how you could vote against medical Marijuana. It's really upsetting to see people like John McCain, who has no medical experience, come out against it and say "vote no", when you have tons of medical professionals supporting the use of Marijuana to alleviate certain conditions.

    Medical marijuana is foolish. There aren't any real benefits from Marijuana that you can't get from other drugs.

    So instead you'd rather get lung cancer which requires chemo to make you vomit? There are no real benefits that TCH brings that other's don't. Even so, they could synthesize it and put it in a pill form or possibly isolate it into a vapor free from the marijuana plant. This is nothing but back door legalization. I support democracy, but in my opinion the very minor majority of voters in AZ have voted foolishly. "medical" marijuana makes about as much sense as "medical" tobacco smoke.

    I have to disagree that its not a government issue to ban drugs. You legalize a drug you will increase the usage. Even San Franciso with all its liberalism shut down the pot shops because of the incredible abuse of the system.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    A very excellent and important point about TCH.
