Several days ago, we asked your opinion on the legalization of marijuana. Well we heard you load and clear. The out come of our poll wasn’t even a close one, 484 votes were cast it reached 6,035 viewers and was shared over 40 times. With 93% of all votes in favor of legalizing it. We are almost positive that the results would be replicated across the entire state of Indiana. Yet many policy makers claim that legalization has little support.
There is a common knowledge among most of us that the state system or government does not represent the people they claim to be serving. At times it may seem they are taking our concerns into consideration simply because our concerns and their agendas align however, I would say that is only coincidence. Right now, there are Indiana elected officials claiming to be coming around to legalization of medical marijuana, this is just a ploy to get votes. They all know that marijuana is gaining support across all age groups and across party lines. Again, I believe they are exploiting the popularity claiming to be a supporter of marijuana while working against the cause. Never the less we have to continue fighting for states rights to legalize marijuana.
Most of all our followers that voted for legalization in our poll did so stating the medical uses and benefits to their own health. Very few made statements about using marijuana recreationally. Those that opposed legalization based their opinion on the idea that legalization would lead to higher rates of abuse. This is something that I do not agree with. It is already evident that we have a drug abuse issue in this county, legalization of marijuana in my opinion will not increase the rate of drug abuse. Those that are inclined to abuse drugs will do so if it is legal or not. Those that use drugs responsibly will continue to just as they use alcohol responsibly.
There are many marijuana advocate groups in Indiana if you would like to join one contact us at conta[email protected] and we will put you in contact with one.
