Colorado Marijuana Initiative Gains Democratic Party Endorsement * 2
    #16098391 - 04/16/12 04:55 PM (7 years, 5 days ago)

VERY nice. The first time a major marijuana initiative has gotten support of one of the two major political parties:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/16/colorado-democratic-party_n_1429648.html

Quote:

Update below: Last month, a majority of attendees at the Denver Republican Assembly backed Amendment 64, the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act. And enthusiasm is even more widespread among Democrats. Saturday's Dem state convention and assembly in Pueblo formally supported Amendment 64 -- an action that proves to proponent Mason Tvert that the measure has growing appeal across party lines.
"While there may be more support among Democrats and independents, this is quickly becoming a popular position," Tvert says. "Supporting an end to marijuana prohibition and regulating marijuana like alcohol is a position that spans the political and ideological spectrum."

This view is echoed by Cindy Lowery-Graber, chair of the Denver Democratic Party. In a statement, she argues that "this is a mainstream issue. Polls show that more than 60 percent of Democrats and a solid majority of independents believe marijuana should be treated like alcohol. A broad coalition is forming in support of Amendment 64 and I am proud to say that it now includes the Colorado Democratic Party."

Indeed, fifteen counties, including eight of the ten largest, have adopted resolutions supporting the regulation of marijuana like alcohol. They are: El Paso, Denver, Jefferson, Larimer, Boulder, Douglas, Weld, Pueblo, Garfield, Eagle, La Plata, Delta, Routt, Elbert and Pitkin.

Yup. It's nice. But as long as the Fed's don't legalize... it won't count for much.

The Fed's have the power of the purse.

Yeah but thats a serious blow to the federal law's grip on the land. This could be a state fully standing up and saying "leave us alone feds". Many states will follow when this passes. None of this half assed medicalized crap. Not that cannabis isn't a medicine, its just that most people lie through their teeth to pretend its a medicine to them so they can get their card. There should be both medical and recreational marijuana. Time to cut the bullshit

And since when have the Fed's given a fuck about what the states want?

The states are beholden to the Fed's for the money that the Fed first takes from the states, then returns to them with a fake smile.

The Fed controls the purse, and the states.

I want drugs to be legal. I just don't believe it will happen anytime soon, and the Fed's will fight it all the way.

Feds have always had power over the state BUT us the people have power over the feds. We must make this happen not by revolution and force but by common sense!

Yup. The people have the power over the Fed's. They just don't use it.

They're too busy pointing at the 'sheep" from the other party, while acting like "sheep" themselves.



"I was born a Democrat, I'll die a Democrat."

"Well, my dad was a Republican, that's good enough for me."



Common sense died a painful death long before you and I were born. It's corpse smells worse with each passing year.

Drug legalization WILL happen, but not for many years. It won't happen because the people want it. It won't happen because the states want it. It won't happen because people think it should. It won't happen because the Fed's realize they are wrong. There will be no outbreak of "common sense".

It'll happen because they won't have enough money to keep going on their current path.

Wise words, very true.  I persist that optimism can only help the situation Still. Many peoples lifes are being ruined by these inane drug laws Not only recreationall users but many potential medical users with nervous system disorders and glacuoma, etc,,, that deserve treatment and freedom. Money is already a major Issue around the world and particularly here in the states What sense does it make to put money into fighting a drug war on cannabis when we could be using it as a positive thing ? who hasnt tried marijuana is an even greater question, everyones tried it So why do they think that otherw shouldnt have the ability to do so for themselvews just as well, but in a legal way.

I agree. It's money wasted.

When has the fear of wasting money ever stopped the Fed's?

Here is how it goes:  Pander to the electorate; get reelected; have selective memory.  I wouldn't get too hot and bothered about D's or R's who suddenly become for new lax drug policy in an election year.  The classic reference case is Obama.

The deal with this though is that they have put their weight behind the drug legalization initiative. This is not simply talk. This is them actually funding and campaigning for a direct ballot initiative, which will result in direct action if passed.
