Noted Philanthropist George Soros Gets Behind Legaizing Pot

As recently reported on the website, Politics Daily, philanthropist and liberal activist, George Soros has devoted a million dollars of his own money to support the upcoming ballot measure on November 4th when Californians will decide whether to legalized marijuana.


While medicinal marijuana in California is easy to access, the ambiguity of the law has gotten many poor citizens in trouble, who never thought they were engaged in illegal activity.

In fact, in his bid to run for Attorney General, L.A. D.A. Steve Cooley decided to 'crack down' on all the 'illegal' marijuana collectives in Los Angeles. This new decision is particularly strange in light of the fact that Cooley had allowed the proliferation of these collectives for the previous decade as D.A.

Unforutnately many people had to suffer incarceration and have their livelihood stolen from them for the sake of this political expediancy.

Full marijuana legalization, as Soros supports, would eliminate this chance and finally legalize marijuana for good, at least in one state of the union.

Soros backs the proposition with good popular support, demonstrating that this is not just a proposition dreamed up by hippies and pot-heads.

But we can only wait and see...but DEFINITELY VOTE.

    Jesus said, Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them. (Matthew 7:12).

    I know I would not want my child sent to jail with the sexual predators, or my aging parents to have their house confiscated and sold by the police, over a little marijuana.

    We can change the world when we vote.
