Forget the smoking ban, how abouta petition to legalize marijuana

Tim TedoreSummit Cove

I believe in the rights of small business owners and I am a greater supporter of the democratic process. I voted against the smoking ban even though I’m the worst kind of nonsmoker – an ex-smoker.The fact of the matter is that the ban was approved 2-1 by the voters. I’m pretty sure that not everyone who was eligible to vote got off the couch to participate in this decision. Those who benefit from the freedoms of this society must also accept the responsibilities. If there were to be an exception to the smoking ban, then the voters would have stood up and said so already. You can’t cry foul afterwards.Now, if you really want to promote change, I suggest getting a petition to legalize marijuana.I’ll bet the laziest of potential voters would be willing to get off their butts, register and actively participate in the democratic process.
