No Experience Necessary | 2012-11-06 ELECTION DAY DENVER – Colorado voters have approved Amendment 64 to legalize recreational marijuana use — making our state one of the first in the country to legalize pot. Amendment 64 was leading 53 percent to 47 percent with 58 percent of the vote counted. The pot victory came 12 years after Colorado voters made medical marijuana legal for people with certain ailments. The state constitutional amendment is expected to trigger a confrontation with federal law enforcement officials. Federal law prohibits any marijuana use — recreational or medicinal. Amendment 64 will allow adults over 21 to possess up to an ounce of marijuana. It also would allow people to grow as many as six marijuana plants in private, secure areas. Washington State voters also passed a marijuana legalization measure Tuesday night, but a similar proposal failed in Oregon.

Now that the stimulus money has been spent we need to depend on ourselves as we have in the past. Luckily we have solutions right here in our district and solutions that will not only increase California’s GDP but will protect our nation from cyber attacks now and in the future. Our district boasts the 2nd largest high-tech sector in California outside of silicon valley. We are literally sitting on top of the obvious solution. Unfortunately this solution isn’t that obvious to our current representation who is focused on ear-mark spending, pet pork projects and re-election for a 19th term. As the needs of California business owners go un-addressed, Washington fat cats pile on more regulations that squeeze the life out of our local economy and create uncertainty that drives

    The older generation’s I.E. the baby boomers way of thinking is slowly being phased out this is a new generation with new ideas and new values we intend let common since triumph pot has never killed a single person in the history of it’s consumption and it’s only illegal because of lobbyist and propaganda (think for yourself) the part that bothers me is these people? that fight to keep it illegal never fight for other inebriants to be illegal now why is that don’t be a hypocrite peace and pot.

    Should start talking about forming a major 3rd party from existing? members of congress since the Republican and Democrat party are running on the same platform now. A party of people who want to eliminate the deficit and promote private sector growth.

    Well put! The beauty of representative government is being able to utilize and support the talents and needs of your local constituents on the greatest stage in Washington. Mr Obagi is stating what most people are concerned about: jobs. Real jobs, with real hope for growth and stability. Fresh ideas and fiscal sanity are grossly lacking in Congress lately, and I think Mr Obagi has the right stuff to help correct that. ?
