I'm having zero tolerance for cannabis (marijuana) prohibitionists and their
terrorizing ignorance, so I was pleased to read "Pot Prop May Go On '04
Ballot" (Sept. 26, 2003). Anchorage Superior Court Judge John Suddock
ordered Lt. Gov. Loren Leman to accept almost 200 initiative signature
booklets previously rejected.

This is similar to an occurrence in Colorado, where in 1998 a medical
marijuana amendment was on the Colorado ballot but Secretary of State Vicky
Buckley did not count the votes because she said there were not enough valid
signatures on the petitions. After her death, boxes of petition sheets were
found in her office and a recount of all the signatures initiated by
proponents proved the state made a mistake. A judge then ordered the medical
marijuana question be placed on the ballot again on Nov. 7.

Previously, it was known as Amendment 19, but when the Colorado court judge
placed it on the ballot it was labeled Amendment 20, and people across the
great state of Colorado, were asked to vote 4:20.

The government's war on cannabis is worse than ludicrous, it's Luciferous.

Caging humans for using or growing a plant is anti-Christian and
uncivilized, not just to Me but to Christ God Our Father, The Ecologician,
who sent Me. Don't believe it, just ask Him, Yourself.
