Let the people speak: Should marijuana be legalized?

I have watched with great amusement and growing frustration the ongoing debates between the left and right about marijuana dispensaries. It appears to me that each side is being led by relatively small cliques of diehard supporters.

I say this to both sides – shut up. Your arguments are puerile and self serving. Rather than say why (perhaps The Union will ask me to explain in more than 200 words), I challenge both sides to do what is most democratic: Get the signatures necessary to place the issue on a countywide ballot. Not about dispensaries; this is not the time for half measures. Let’s find out what Nevada County really believes. Should marijuana be legal or not? Let the people speak.
