well now... there should be no vote on any of this in the first place. No government has a right or duty to pass laws on what someone can or can not put in their body, what someone's sexual tastes are (unless of course that person has a taste for children), or pass laws regarding what is moral or is not. The majority of crime would be wiped out in one swoop if drugs and many other things were to be decriminalized and thus free up a TON of resources that could be put to better use on say contributing members of society. People want to kill themselves with meth, crack, etc? WHO CARES? let them. why waste tax dollars or a moment of though on them? those people will self-destruct whether drugs are legal or not, so why waste resources on trying to save them? As far as I am concerned, the government has only a few functions, like serving the tax payer with decent roads, schools, hospitals, police, ESSENTIAL SERVICES. Governments has gotten so far off base that it ain't even funny. I don't understand or agree with same sex marriages, but then what does the government have to do with traditional marriages? bestiality? polygamy? anal sex between a man and wife? (yes, there are some states where it is unlawful to have anal sex with your wife) who in the hell gave the government the right to legislate ANY of these things? They say Church and State have been separated. Oh really?
