Protect marriage? From what? Letis protect each other from bigotry and 
prejudice. There are more important things like "Protect children from 
abusive married people" or "Protect our right to life, vote for national 
health insurance" that we should be campaigning for instead. Providing a 
safe and healthy home for our families has nothing to do with a marriage 
certificate. Ask any social worker. I just moved from Utah to escape this 
kind of repression. Prove that Nevadans are smarter than Utahns and believe 
adults are free to choose for themselves.

I am not qualified to vote on medical marijuana. I have never had marijuana 
and I have also never been really sick. How can I sit in judgment on people 
with chronic and severe pain? Leave this issue up to doctors to prescribe 
what they think best. If I ever got chronically sick, I would not only want 
all the marijuana I could get, I would also want a quick affirmative vote 
on assisted suicide. So, healthy people, have a heart and let the sick 
people have the resources they need to make it through the day. They also 
need the freedom to choose.
