Americans are recognizing that we GLBT couples are also Americans and deserve to be treated equally.

IMO, Colorado and Washington are taking the smart path legalizing pot. Tax it, make a bit of revenue and discontinue the monetary drain that is necessary when prosecuting, jailing and enforcing laws against its use.

Good question. Why not? Street walking is going to happen regardless, why not make it generate a few more tax dollars.

What did prohibition of alcohol accomplish other than provide a bonanza for Al Capone who went from an obscure gang member to becoming a kingpin of organized crime?

I voted for Amendment 64 yesterday. It will be great to see Colorado dollars go to licensing fees for legal marijuana and to revenues for state public works projects instead of South into the pockets of organized crime in Mexico.

The ballot initiatives in Colorado and Washington legalizing marijuana for recreational use has prompted a response from Mexico’s president-elect. He opposes legalization of drugs and says it will “complicate” Mexico’s efforts to stop drug trafficking into the U.S. Really? I’d like to hear the incoming president explain that to us if he cares to.
