Vote on medical marijuana in the State Senate today

There’s an article about the Republican-sponsored bill to allow medicinal marijuana use with a doctor’s counseling and prescription in today’s UL HERE.
So where does our 8-year Democrat Gov. John Lynch stand on the bill? He promises to veto the thing! Idiotic. Here’s my comment at the bottom of the Union Leader article:

Democrat Gov. Lynch is an idiot for supporting the failed and extremely harmful “war on some drugs”…

…(cannabis yes, alcohol no, tobacco no, etc.). Democrats in the state senate who vote against this humanitarian bill should be voted out of office in November; ditto for Republican senators who vote against it.

I mean, come on, people! Maine has it. Vermont has it. Massachusetts has it. But New Hampshire—the “Live Free or Die” state?—is going to fall into the ocean if this simple humanitarian substance is able to be used with a doctor’s prescription? Get REAL. (We should have gotten rid of Gov. Lynch years ago, too.)

I’ve been political my entire life, starting out with Barry Goldwater and The Conscience of a Conservative in the1960’s. In 1967 I enlisted in the U.S. Marines for four years, spending nearly two of them in South Vietnam. In 1972 I was a Florida presidential elector for Prof. John Hospers, the first Presidential candidate of the national Libertarian Party which was founded that same year. During the late 1970’s and into the 1980’s I was a contributing editor and monthly columnist for Reason magazine, and I’ve authored numerous articles in the print and online media about various subjects relating to individual rights and personal freedom. Today I’m a lawyer by profession; I divide my time between New Hampshire and Florida all year long, spending much of my time practicing law in Florida. As an early supporter and past member of the board of directors of the Free State Project, I was drawn to the Live Free or Die state of New Hampshire in late 2003 when it was chosen by a vote of the first 5,000 FSP participants. In 2004 I founded the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire, and continue today to work within the state political system to advance the traditional NH values of frugal small government, low taxes, small business, free enterprise, and self-responsibility. To all, I say “Come and see what we are building in the beautiful, healthy, livable Free State of New Hampshire!”
