Supporters of legal marijuana in Washington on Monday delivered more than double the signatures needed to put the issue on a ballot, an initiative that could face congressional opposition.
Adam Eidinger, chairman of the DC Cannabis Campaign, said the group had collected about 57,000 signatures to put the measure on a Nov. 4 ballot in the U.S. capital, well over the 22,373 required by law.
“This would not open up stores. This would not lead to D.C. becoming a tourist haven,” he told reporters at the District of Columbia Board of Elections.
“This is just for the citizens who live here, the residents who pay taxes, to have the right to use marijuana freely in their homes without fear of arrest, harassment or a ticket.”
Look kids, the chairman of the DC Cannabis Campaign is so high he isn’t aware that the nation’s capital is already a “tourist haven”.
Personally, I’m in favor of letting the members of Congress get as stoned as they want. It would be much better for the country if they were truly “do-nothing” and devoted to the pursuit of Doritos while overwhelmed by the munchies.
