  1. Where did you come up with the ridiculous notion that it was Ron Paul supporters voting more than once that put marijuana legalization to the top of the list? Take a look at the long list of organizations supporting the idea and the note about throwing out multiple votes after questions were merged at http://www.change.org/ideas/idea_comments?idea_id=legalize_the_medicinal_and_recreational_use_of_marijuana

    This is an idea whose time has come!!

  2. “Stay tuned” indeed. Just like television – if there is nothing “on,” people will find something else to do, and quickly.

  3. I find your dismissal of the results of the Change.org Ideas for Change in America based on the Legalization of Marijuana coming in at number 1 uninformed and clearly based more on your own prejudice than facts. 42% of Americans have tried pot (source: http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1821697,00.html). This is a mass issue, but one that keeps getting dismissed as not serious but supposed elites. With so many people having a personal connection to this issue, and so many beginning to understand the ruinous costs of maintaining a war against non-violent drug users, it’s not surprising it would come out number 1 in a public vote. I sincerely hope it gets some serious consideration and doesn’t just get blithely dismissed as impossible.

    The whole debate reminds us that if there’s one thing we learn from history it’s that we don’t learn from history. After all, we’ve been here before, with Prohibition, and that’s universally acknowledged as a disaster. Same thing here.
