Tax Cannabis has helped helped ushered in (among other things, such as catastrophic events in the gulf, natural disasters, etc) an era of political and economic awareness like no other. People, young and old, are becoming conscious of the power that they have in unity to change our government and the world around us!
In a recent poll, held shortly after the 2010 Primaries, shows some promising results for voting in November.
- 76% say marijuana is already being used in the state and ought be regulated
- 61% say it’s easier for teens to get marijuana than alcohol (the initiative would make cannabis legal for all 21+, like booze)
- 74% say marijuana ought be regulated like tobacco and alcohol
- 69% say the initiative will bring the state needed revenue (60% say it will save the state money)
- 57% say it will put police priorities where they belong
Indeed, they are very slim majorities: 51% support the initiative when only hearing the title (”The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010?) and 52% support the initiative when they read the Attorney General’s summary of it. These are important numbers because the title and summary are the only things voters will read about Tax Cannabis when they are at the polls. (Source: Alternet)
