I FReeped it with the conservative response: Yes.
Do you believe Maine should legalize, tax and regulate marijuana?
Total Votes: 479
I’m going to vote yes. Do you still want me to FReep it?
I voted YES.
I get the “legalize part, but the “tax” and “regulate” is ridiculous.
You can grow the stuff in your bedroom. So much for taxing and regulating. And THAT is why it was made illegal.
Ah , Marijuana Liberal Brain Food
Hell/Handbasket, why not?
Portland = “Po’tland” :) (pronunciation)
Caveat... Make drug testing mandatory for any and all welfare/socialist benefits. Pop positive on a pee quiz and the money tap gets shut off.
Wanna sit around being a stoner? Fine. Don’t do it on my dime...
Isn't the internet wonderful?
Now it's 71-29 'yes', 659 votes.
Hail yes...those Mainers are crazy anyway...might as well let them be high and crazy...
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. (multiple votes using multiple internetz devices are allowed!) And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
Thanks for posting! I voted for freedom and against govt tyranny over a natural-growing weed.
I might change my mind if we had a package making alcohol, tobacco and pot illegal. At least then we would be getting rid of two dangerous drugs.
Voting Yes. Thanks.
To put everyone’s mind at ease, legalization of pot is not going to change much of anything. I live in Los Angeles, where pot has been functionally legal for the past decade or so. There are hundreds of hip, little “dispensaries” in every commercial district, and they sell pot to anyone with a “recommendation” that can be obtained in about 15 minutes by claiming, without documentation, medical “stress” or “anxiety” or “insomnia”.
Now, there are a lot of things to complain about in terms of life in Los Angeles, but you’d be hard-pressed to attribute many of them to legal pot. Crime rates have posted substantial year over year declines; test scores remain dismal, but slightly improving; drug abuse and addiction rates haven’t changed that I’m aware of.
Think about it like this: do you personally know anyone who doesn’t smoke pot because it’s illegal, and once it’s legal, will become a pot smoker? Everyone I know either likes pot and smokes it, or doesn’t. Nobody is sitting out there saying to themselves, “boy I wish I could smoke some pot, but unfortunately, it’s illegal, so I can’t.”
So make it legal or not, nothing much is going to change. The only thing that I really hope is that if it becomes legal in more places, the market for Mexican pot moved across the border by narco-terrorist cartels via illegal aliens will dry up, helping with our attempts to seal the freakin’ border and stop the illegal alien invasion. Now that would change things in L.A. significantly, for the better!
Poll kept defaulting to the results. Wonder if they’ve closed down the polls?
They should legalize it then keep their grubby hands off it. But I voted, Yes.
Democrats will only use the tax money to grow bigger government.
Among other reasons.
