October 22, 2013

Quote:
For marijuana advocates, the last 12 months have been a period of unprecedented success as Washington and Colorado became the first states to legalize recreational use of marijuana. And now for the first time, a clear majority of Americans (58%) say the drug should be legalized. This is in sharp contrast to the time Gallup first asked the question in 1969, when only 12% favored legalization.

Mi tu. A Republican convinced me. Well, I didn't actually need convincing, but he provided me with some very persuasive arguments.
