Smoke 'Em if You Got 'Em

  • 12 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

The SAFER campaign to get a marijuana legalization issue on the November ballot will submit more than 110,000 petition signatures to the Secretary of State on Monday (about 68,000 signatures are needed to qualify a measure for the ballot).

If a bunch of pot heads (no offense, pot heads) can get 40 percent more signatures than needed to give themselves a big cushion for names being thrown out, it kind of makes you wonder how the Marc Holtzman campaign came up so short. Maybe they had the wrong kind of brownies at campaign headquarters.

  1. Did someone say marijuana? Someone call Justin as the BB campaign!

    Oh, wait, I forgot. The BB folks only like special brownies if they’re also laced with LSD.

  2. No joke…I just returned from a conference in Philadelphia and who did I see working as a waiter in Chili’s?

    Andy George.

    Guess he is trying to apply to Republican organizations in Washington, D.C. at least that is what he told me.

    What a joke!

  3. I’m not in the least a pot head, but I hope it passes.  Why are we wasting money prosecuting this non-crime and paying to lock such people up?  Go after violent criminals instead.

    I don’t know why Holtzman screwed up so badly.  I saw one of his signature collectors at the grocery store, but I’m not a Republican so I wasn’t any help to him.

    1. Colorado’s prison population is out of control.  And these “for profit” prisons are a virus on Colorado and America.

      Pot is much SAFER than alcohol.

  4. assuming that only “pot heads” will support this getting on the ballot only serves to hinder the discussion about WHY this should or shouldn’t be supported.  by labling all supporters as pot heads you discourage non-smoking supporters from voicing their views.  as a smoker there are many reasons for and against legalization that i agree with.  one thing is clear though, and that is that the current strategy for addressing marijuana use has not prevented many if any from using it and spending millions of dollars on a failing program is a waste.

  5. As someone who’s never done any drugs or smoked any smoke em’s, I have to say that I support this measure because potheads don’t frighten me more than rapists and murderers.

    Thanks.
