Medical marijuana a go in Arizona

(CNN) - By a narrow margin of about 4,300 votes, Arizona voters approved a ballot measure that would legalize medical marijuana, state election officials said Sunday.

With all precincts reporting, the "yes" votes on Proposition 203 have 50.1 percent of the vote to 49.8 percent of "no" votes, according to unofficial results posted on the Arizona Secretary of State's website. More than 1.6 million votes were cast.

    It should be legal everywhere and not just for medical purposes!!! This is just my opinion!!

    Anyway, let's continue to Move America Forward with our Leader President Obama.... Maybe somewhere down the road, marijauna will be something of the past and not even an issue...... Come on Now, it's a WEED!!

    T'sah is OUT of Campaign MODE (I keep saying this because it URKS some people)!!

    I guess AZ needed something to offset the stupidity it projects to the rest of the country through it's draconian actions to curb illegal immigration. Also, AZ is at fault for having a senior senator who unleashed Sarah Palin on the world. It's also the home of Sheriff Arpaio, about whom the less said the better. So, they're down to "beautiful scenery" on the plus side, and lots of negatives. Medical marijuana can only help. As a matter of fact, some of those right wingers in AZ might benefit from occasional recreational marijuana intake. Maybe it would keep them off the crack pipe.

    Legalize it already. Oh yea, organized crime sure doesn't want that.
    neither does the DEA, state and local police who make billions of from civil seizures, or the prison industry.
    We can even keep pot of of our prisons, but we will waste billions trying to keep it out of a free society.
