      It will be so interesting to see the outcome of legalization in colorado, especially a voter-apporoved bill. You can tell from letters to the attorney general that the fed is under pressure to enforce the CSA. The problem here is it’s taking away states rights in the most outrageous way. Denying a people of a state rights to change thier own laws REAKS of government tyranny to a new extreme. And the funny thing is, we all know the truth. Congress, the President, and I’m sure as much as its agents are brainwashed, even the DEA knows the truth. Marijuana is NOT a deadly drug. The deadliest thing about it is it’s prohibition. This will spark much controversy in government once this bill passes (amoung other things ;), and I hope to God it does. The end of prohibition may come slow and hard, but the people know the truth, and I’m confident they won’t stand for lies and tyranny once the cats out of the bag from this. The people want legalized marijuana, it’s time our government answer to it’s people’s demands!

    5. Yeah I really hope this passes because finally it will show that the people have really chosen for the obvious legalization of regulated Medical Marijuana! If the government does not make it happen people will lose their shit! But big backing from cartels who knows what will happen! Looking forward to November!

      As long as people don’t see the numbers and assume their vote isn’t needed…the only way to make those numbers a reality is to get out the vote!

    7. […] said they were definitely voting no, and 22% remain undecided. Unlike the other two initiatives in Colorado and Washington, which are showing strong leads, many voters seem to have not made up their minds […]
