After yesterday elections, the people of Ohio and Seattle are the winners, voting on constitutional amendments to reduce gerrymandering, democracy vouchers to publicly fund campaigns and to not monopolized marijuana. My question, who and why would they monopolized marijuana?? It’s for everyone to enjoy; Ohio voters rejected a CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT that would allow the legalization of marijuana to become a monopoly among the privilege who would become even wealthier. Sorta like the banking industry financing campaigns. Thanks to Angelo Gallo for clarifying this. Kudos to Ohio for another victory in voting to reduce GERRYMANDERING. The voters of Ohio approved a constitutional amendment to greatly reduce gerrymandering, the redrawing of districts that can increase voters for one party and reduce voters for the other party; most of the time this is done in minority districts as a way to disenfranchise voters. Also, kudos to Seattle for passing their Democracy Voucher initiative, an initiative that gives citizens the power to publicly fund programs through vouchers paid for by property taxes in order to limit corps “donations” to campaigns in local elections. With such huge victories in Ohio and Seattle, perhaps other states can follow their lead in changing politics
