Unusual Ballot Measures…

So today the Californian residents get to vote yes or no on Proposition 19….So far the smoke out has a 41% opposition….I say legalize it and put some of these drug lords out of business….

Proposition 19, also known as the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010, is a California ballot proposition which will be on the November 2, 2010 California statewide ballot. It legalizes various marijuana-related activities, allows local governments to regulate these activities, permits local governments to impose and collect marijuana-related fees and taxes, and authorizes various criminal and civil penalties.[1] In March 2010, it qualified to be on the November statewide ballot.[2] It requires a simple majority in order to pass, and would take effect the day after the election.[3] Yes on 19 is the official advocacy group for the initiative, and No On Proposition 19 is the official opposition group.[4]

Proponents of Proposition 19 argue that it would help with California’s budget shortfall, cut off funding to violent drug cartels, and redirect law enforcement resources to more dangerous crimes,[5] while opponents claim that it contains gaps and flaws that may have serious unintended consequences on public safety, workplaces, and federal funding.[6] As of October 2010[update], even if the proposition is passed, the sale of marijuana will remain illegal under federal law via the Controlled Substances Act.

But Denver, Colorado residents have an enormously different decision to make today…to support Denver Initiative 300, which will protect them from future contact with, you guessed it…aliens (uh, the ones from another planet, please).

Denver Initiative 300 on the 2010 ballot seeks to establish and fund an “extraterrestrial affairs commission” to ensure our safety in any “potential interactions with extraterrestrial intelligent beings or their vehicles.”

Because that’s what these sorts of illegals do. They come here smuggling their unearthly drugs and spreading disease strains we can’t cure. They drive their non-American unregistered vehicles around without proper driver’s licenses and smash into American citizens and then they fly across the border and beyond the clouds.

The Initiative proponent is Denver resident Jeff Peckman, who has appeared on Letterman and on FOX to speak about ET visitations. He introduced the initiative in April and in roughly a month he landed the 3,973 signatures– or 5 percent of the number of votes cast in the city’s prior mayor’s race– to secure a place for Initiative 300 on the November ballot. Peckman posted a website, extracampaign.org, as part of his signature-gathering efforts.

Uh, okay….We here in PA have to decide on Home Rule form of government….I feel so bored….
