pot!

Marijuana is apparently now legal for medical use in Arizona. Huh. Didn’t see that coming from this state.

Here’s an excerpt from CNN on 11/14/10:

By a narrow margin of about 4,300 votes, Arizona voters approved a ballot measure that would legalize medical marijuana, state election officials said Sunday.

With all precincts reporting, the “yes” votes on Proposition 203 have 50.1 percent of the vote to 49.8 percent of “no” votes, according to unofficial results posted on the Arizona Secretary of State’s website. More than 1.6 million votes were cast.

I’m not going to get on a soapbox here, but 4,300 votes is not.a.lot. Not at all! That’s madness!

It hurts my heart (and head) that more people don’t vote. I have a hard time with it. But for that, there’s the serenity prayer…

Also in pot news, there was the Harry POTter premier tonight. Jim and I aren’t huge fans, but we dabble. I had a colleague offer us free passes to an early screening tonight, complete with a $20 allowance for junk food. We couldn’t say no. We really like junk food.

The movie was good. You’ll really like it if you’re into wizardry and demonic serpent monsters.

The best part was our free goodie bags – complete with Harry Potter scarves and glasses. See below:

  1. Yes. Totally agree that I was shocked it passed…I voted for it… is that bad? I just feel like it does help those with terminal illness, but that’s just my two cents. And yes, why do more people not vote? WTF! It is our right as citizens. Own it!

    YOU AND JIM ARE SO CUTE! Love the HP garb and that you got to see it early and scored a free costume. Awesome! 🙂
