One of the fun aspects of a national election is getting to see some of the issues the voters in various states are grappling with.
Here are some of the interesting things I’ve seen tonight:
- Massechussetts has voted to decriminalize marijuana
- Michigan has voted to legalize medical marijuana
- The proposed abortion ban has failed in South Dakota
- Colorado has decided that human life does not begin at fertilization
This election is full of hot-button issues… from the very top of the ballot, where we must make the decision as to who our next president will be, along with choosing between various gubernatorial candidates, potential senators, representatives… all the way down.
States are dealing with such controversial subjects as same-sex marriage, stem cell research, abortion, affirmative action and the legalization of marijuana.
In Washington, voters are weighing whether or not to legalize physician-assisted suicide for terminally ill patients.
Never a dull moment.
