(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.
They say that California is a leader, when it comes to voting initiatives. When they passed property tax reform, the rest of the nation soon followed. Now, it seems, the rest of the nation, in fits and starts, is beginning to follow California on another important issue, that of marijuana.
Yea, I know, I know, California is full of Liberals, but sometimes they get it right, and other states follow. Kudos, Californians, and kudos to you too, Arizona, for another victory against the War on Drugs and Reason, and for giving a big, fat, middle finger to Federal domination of an issue that is none of it's damn business.
