I just wrote a comprehensive article on Weedist covering the cannabis legalization propositions nationwide, the possibility of new medical marijuana states, and the presidential race, from the perspective of “who’s better for cannabis users”.
It was as fair and balanced as I could make it, while still putting forth the idea that it’s not a great idea to vote for anyone who wants to actually put us in jail. So I discussed the many candidates who want to actually do something positive for this country by ending the Drug War and ending marijuana prohibition.
I didn’t actually advocate for any particular candidate there, but I will here. I urge you to vote for Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate. He’s not “single-issue” on marijuana, but he does agree with us about it, and I happen to agree with many of this positions as well, as they’re all pro-freedom. And if you’re not voting for freedom, what are you voting for?
There are always well-meaning people out there who say, “Your vote will be wasted if you don’t vote for one of the two leading parties”, but I contend that my vote would be wasted if I voted for either of them. They don’t speak for me at all!
By continually voting for either Tweedledum or Tweedledee, we keep getting “more of the same” without substantial change in leadership. Let’s think out of the box and show that there are legitimate, thoughtful candidates with experience who can actually run things better!
