The “Yes on 205” people are trying hard to make everyone believe its opponents are establishment busybodies who want to regulate personal choices.
But all the “No on 205” people I know are principled opponents of the drug war who want to see a proposal that returns the market in recreational products to the people rather than the crony cartels, sets everybody free not just pot smokers, and is retroactive to those currently incarcerated or carrying lifelong felonies that deny them access to housing, employment, public benefits and civil rights like voting and self-defense.
Don’t be fooled by the “Yes on 205” people. They are pushing a crony capitalist protectionism scheme that harms the consumer and perpetuates an inequality of law.
Tell them NO ON 205, kick MPP and its crony capitalist golfing buddies to the curb and bring back a clean proposal in 2018.
