Playing fair with pot

Posted: Wednesday, October 01, 2003

I'm having zero tolerance for cannabis (marijuana) prohibitionists and their terrorizing ignorance, so I was pleased to read "Pot Prop May Go On '04 Ballot" (Sept. 26, 2003). Anchorage Superior Court Judge John Suddock ordered Lt. Gov. Loren Leman to accept almost 200 initiative signature booklets previously rejected.

This is similar to an occurrence in Colorado, where in 1998 a medical marijuana amendment was on the Colorado ballot but Secretary of State Vicky Buckley did not count the votes because she said there were not enough valid signatures on the petitions. After her death, boxes of petition sheets were found in her office and a recount of all the signatures initiated by proponents proved the state made a mistake. A judge then ordered the medical marijuana question be placed on the ballot again on Nov. 7.

Previously, it was known as Amendment 19, but when the Colorado court judge placed it on the ballot it was labeled Amendment 20, and people across the great state of Colorado, were asked to vote 4:20.

The government's war on cannabis is worse than ludicrous, it's Luciferous.

Caging humans for using or growing a plant is anti-Christian and uncivilized, not just to Me but to Christ God Our Father, The Ecologician, who sent Me. Don't believe it, just ask Him, Yourself.
