Well on a light hearted note, it was funny to me that one of the props was whether porn actors should be forced to wear condoms or not. THIS IS AMERICA, where else would this be a referendum?
And yes I did vote to legalize maryjane. I don’t smoke it myself , tried it once and it give me a frickin headache. Don’t need it. But you can’t stop Mary Jane. You can smell it all over Berkeley on a Friday/ Saturday night (actually you can smell skunk weed every night over there).
The jury is out on whether there is medical benefit and there seems to be a genuine benefit for those suffering chronic pain.
So i don’t think banning it is needed at this time. DRiving stoned though? I say NO>
I voted yes to NO Death penalty. But only because most of them are never executed anyways and stay in jail for decades until they die.
Having a death penalty the jurors may be less inclined to vote Guilty. And some crims may get off that should not.
Also executing the wrong guy , being a possibility , its better to wrongly jail someone for years then to wrongly kill someone.
On the flip side (remember I am a libra so there is always a flip side) I did vote that if the death penalty is to be kept , execution should not exceed five years from the sentence and that all needed lawyers and what not should be assigned to explore whether they are truly guilty.
The point being, we don’t want them in jail for life if they are sentenced to death.
There are some people that truly deserve to be executed for the crimes they have committed. But a harsher sentence may in fact be life imprisonment. I am not for “without parole” though. As I feel that is wrong. If the crime is serious one should expect quite a long time in the can.
But “without parole” is unGodly. Even God forgives. It is better to put to death the person then to give him no hope.
No one should be without HOPE while alive.
Even violent criminals should have the HOPE that they can one day be able to achieve freedom.
To jail “without the possibility of freedom one day” is not humane.
Not saying everyone should be let out after a certain time. Some may not be able to be let out without a real chance they will kill again. But the “hope” should be there, if they can be released.
