Pro-amendment 44 protesters shout down Politicians and law enforment
The Governor and the usual law enforcement suspects tried to have a anti-amendment 44 conference, but the crowd that showed up was definitely pro-legalization of pot and made that point clear. Here is my favorite part from the article detailing the event:
"Owens hurried through the rest of his comments, telling the wall of green shirts and sign wavers they risked dangers from second-hand smoke if the measure passed."
Score 1 for Governor Owens for coming up with what is possibly the lamest reason ever for not supporting amendment 44, “second hand smoke”. I think the real message from this story is that the population supports the legalization of marijuana, and the only ones opposed to it are politicians and police who would see a loss of power and revenue if this bill passes.
