Spartapuss: 38 years old. Still like marijuana is worth it?


Try to make some semblance of sense when talking shiat.

Really?  Why bother if you're not going to put any effort into it.

The real travesty is understanding why MN hasn't legalized pot yet. If IL and MI can do it, so can MN.

It sounds dumb, but they got sufficient support last go round to meet the threshold, so this is the result.  Rather have the delay than have another Wellstone moment if it was a Senate race (Wellstone's race was the reason for the law)

To Wish Impossible Things: Also, for anyone not from Minnesota, Jerry Lewis (also mentioned in the article) is a giant pile of garbage.

Huge pile.  Think younger, more hateful, Rush Limbaugh who is (of course) a Trumper.


Jason Lewis. But yeah, total asshole.

I did chuckle a bit when I noticed the "Legalize Marijuana Now" party on the ballot when I voted a few days ago.  I mean, I like weed, hell, I'm high right now - but don't base your entire political party platform on it.

Mrtraveler01: As someone from a state that elected a dead guy over John Ashcroft, this is pretty weak Minnesota.


You get stuck with Norm Coleman and see if you want to change the rules

To Wish Impossible Things: I don't think Legalize Marijuana Now has ever had a candidate elected.

They are not even our only pot party!  We have two, because apparently the original party split over some issue.  (Not sure what is contentious about legalizing weed among weed smokers, but in MN, our pot party managed to find out!)


One probably skews Libertarian and the other Leftist. It's the one bipartisan issue that both sides agree on.

There won't be any change to the ballots or how anything is counted except votes for the MN 2nd congressional race will not be counted.

Whoops.  Was reading about Jerry Lewis in a separate discussion on another site.  Must have mixed up the names.

I chuckle a bit when I realize there are still people dumb enough to think the major parties are likely to do anything as significant as ending the drug war.

Spartapuss: Bandito King: Spartapuss: 38 years old. Still like marijuana is worth it?

So you're assuming he was killed by marijuana? How? Crushed under a bail of it?

No that was Becky.


I'm pretty sure that was Taylor Swift.
