Arizona Prepares to Light(en) Up!

Arizona, America's rest home, is known for such absurdities as Jan Brewer, Joe Arpaio, and rabid racism, but what it is not known for is progressive legislation.  Anything that smacks of intelligence can just pass right on through to California, because the Arizona sand goobers aren't buying anything but guns, ammo, and Bibles.

So, how surprising is this?  Proposition 203, a voter initiative designed to allow the growing and distribution of marijuana for serious medical uses has passed - barely.  The measure won by 4,341 votes out of a total of 1.67 million cast.This legislation, which is apparently safe from  "tinkering" or repeal by the legislature due to Arizona's Voter Protection Law, represents the third time that medical marijuana has passed a vote of the people. The first two attempts, however, suffered from technicalities that kept the laws from being implemented.  Arizona now joins fifteen other states and the District of Columbia where citizens may be given the option of treating pain and nausea with a doobie!

No word yet on whether Sheriff Joe Arpaio will expand his "illegal" immigrant raids to include kicking in the doors of hospices looking for cancer patients toking demon weed, but if the activity draws any press, Joe can't be far behind!
