    PROP 2 PASSES!!!!
    That makes two states that I have lived in and voted for medical marijuana. The first being California’s Prop 215.
    This is not only a victory for patients statewide but a victory for COMMON SENSE AND DECENCY.
    Way to go Utah!

    Well the only consolation Utah has now that it’s “Gone to Heck in a Handbasket” is we now have Mittens pontificating his nauseous opinions about this and that.

    Win some, lose some!
