Yep, the one thing the feds do right is bully the people (and other countries) out of their voice and free will.

What happened with Al Gore V Bush ?
Votes were manipulated as in California as the Mexicans were afraid to loose their share of the industry

Only fools would wish to continue the phony "war" on drugs. Thanks to you idiots, the cartels can now continue to grow on our public lands, slaughter each other in the border towns, and generally continue the madness that you weak-minded patsies support. Only the cops and the criminals benefit from the continued prohibition.

It might have passed if all the potheads would have gotten off the couch to vote.

The problem with that statement is that a lot of your "potheads" like the status quo as they are either growing and distributing already. So they voted, they just voted no. It would only cut into their profits. Add that to the Reefer madness crowd, the holier than thou, those who profit from the status quo and the feds bullying, and you have a proposition that doesn't pass.
Try thinking before you post next time.

Pot is a $40 billion/year illegal black market industry. Why legalize it? Legalization would put too many prisons and lawyers out of business.
