Should we tax marijuana?

Absolutely—tax revenue is one of several benefits that will come with legalization.
Yes, but taxes should be lower or zero for medical marijuana patients.
No—I don’t want the tax-and-spend government profiting off my marijuana.
Absolutely not—it’s a drug, and it’s a shame that it’s becoming so acceptable.

Keep presidents to two terms

Scott C. Presnal - Morro Bay

There is a proposed new law that has not been passed by our Congress (U.S. House of Representatives, Senate) called H. J. RES 15 that will allow a future president of the United States to serve more than two terms by doing away with the 22nd Amendment.

I am against repealing that amendment, because it will give our president more power to control and devastate our lives as a nation. Even if we have Christian people, this little reminder of this bill being proposed should be voted no by our own Congresswoman, Lois Capps (D).

In the long term, we are losing our freedom like we haven’t in a long time. Does it make any sense to vote on something that will have ultimate consequences in the near future?
