Strong polling numbers on ballot initiatives across the country indicate we have a full-fledged reefer rebellion against drug laws on the way.
As we approach November, the leading Democrat and Republican presidential
candidates remain conspicuously, though predictably, silent regarding
the question of marijuana law reform. By contrast, much of the public
and the mainstream media can’t stop talking about pot politics. That’s
because voters in six states this November 6 will have their say on the
subject. If present polls hold, federal officials on November 7 will
have little choice but to acknowledge that they have a full fledged
reefer rebellion on their hands.
Voters’ impending rejection of
the drug war status quo shouldn’t come as a surprise, at least not to
anyone who has been paying attention.
Opinion polls over the past 12 months indicate record levels of public
support for ending America’s multi-decade failed experiment with
cannabis criminalization. Are a majority of Americans finally ready to
voice their drug war dissent at the ballot box? In mere weeks, voters in
six states will have the opportunity.
