Hey Massachusetts, Are You Cool?

Slater saunters over to the Bay State to get seriously baked:

In Massachusetts, the state's political and law enforcement establishment lined up solidly against the marijuana decriminalization initiative, including both Republican and Democratic politicians and all 11 district attorneys -- several of whom actually admitted to having smoked marijuana. They warned of rampant drug abuse and crime should the measure pass, simply ignoring the fact that no such thing has happened in the 11 other states (including California, Ohio and New York) that have had similar laws for years.

Voters were having none of it, giving a thumping rejection to government officials’ lies and hysteria in both states. Americans have taken a hard look at our national war on marijuana and rejected it for the cruel, counterproductive disaster that it is.

By a 30 point margin, the burners of Massachusetts told the squares to lay off their sticky-icky-icky, decriminalizing possession of marijuana under an ounce (and an ounce is a sh*tload of weed . . . um . . . so I've heard).

Michigan also got a good contact high from the blowing winds of change, approving the use of medical marijuana by 26 points.

Taking a long puff on a canoeing blunt, Slater added, "behind every good man there is a woman, and that woman was Martha Washington, man, and everyday George would come home, she would have a big fat bowl waiting for him, man, when he come in the door, man, she was a hip, hip, hip lady, man."
