Re: “Marijuana Legalization Group Submits Initiative to Secretary of State's Office with More Than 250K Signatures

Please don't vote for this nonsense. Its a carrot on a stick. Or a bud on a stick... You know that stuff that's tied to a stick.

Cannabis should be legal because it never should have been illegal. It is not harmful like the substances they want to regulate and tax it as. Don't let the profiteers win this one.

Re: “No Republicans, Moments of Silence Are Not Preventing Mass Shootings

Who said all gun owners are like this guy? I'd like to see a source, because right now all that is is specious bumper sticker logic. As is 'outlaw everything?'

Mass killers pick places where someone they know is, or with lots of people, preferably densely packed, and confined even better. That correlates to gun free areas, but it's not the cause. A bar with a no weapons policy is actually a great idea. Rambo fantasies serve no purpose except to stroke the ego of the person touting it. Though I suppose they help to up the arms race we live in today.

You want a fantasy? Ask yourself honestly, if you could live in a world with zero guns, I mean absolutely none, would you?

Knives, eh? If this guy had a knife instead, a lot fewer families would be burying their loved ones this week.

It's long past time for the 2nd amendment to be replaced. The citizen militia doesn't exist because we now have a standing army. Private citizens have no need for high capacity firearms. If you feel you do, I suggest reevaluating your life choices.

Re: “Study: Recreational Marijuana Could Bring AZ $113 Million in New Revenue

The overuse of sugar has created a staggering health crises in the US. When will we tax it according to its burden on society? A burden similar to that of tobacco and alcohol. Yet for cannabis *no* such burden exists.

There was never a reason for cannabis to be illegal. There is likewise now no good reason to continue to punish citizens through a regressive tax for the simple act of purchasing it.

These schemes are not worth it. Not even as the proverbial carrot on the legalization stick.

Re: “Marijuana Policy Project's Recreational Weed Legalization Campaign Debuts Mother's Day-Themed Billboard

No! Cannabis is no where near as dangerous as alcohol, which is poisonous, nor does it carry the same public health burden or risks as tobacco. Laying a "sin" tax on cannabis users is still a punishment for using a substance that never should have been illegal in the first place.

Do not fall for this sham. Demand cannabis be 100% free and clear of all penalties.

Re: “Pima County Shuts Down Its Speed Cameras

If I were the king of the world, tell you what I'd do. I'd throw away the cars and the bars and the wars, and make sweet love to you.
