No matter what side of the aisle you're standing, you're probably well aware of the importance of the 2012 election.
But, besides a neck-to-neck presidential race, another aspect of what happens at the polls this November (that you might've missed) is the serious possibility that voters may legalize marijuana.
Three states – Colorado, Oregon and Washington – will feature ballot measures offering voters the chance to make ganja legal. And, we're not talking about initiatives that make it legal to smoke marijuana for "medical reasons." No, we're talking about initiatives making it legal to smoke for "whatever" reasons.
This isn't the first time that Americans would have the chance to make Mary Jane as easy to access as booze. (California voters famously decided not to pass Prop. 19 back in 2010.) But, this is the first time that voters will decide on the issue -- since polling revealed a majority of Americans are cool with the idea.
Of course, most voters haven't noticed the move to make pot legal since President Obama and Mitt Romney have chosen to make the economy the main issue to battle during this election.
We wonder, though: wouldn't legalizing marijuana boost the economy?
Sales of junk food and subscriptions to cable-cartoon networks would immediately go up. Plus, taxation on legal weed would certainly pay off some serious government debt.
But, hey, that's just our opinion.
Now pass the Funyuns; "SpongeBob" is coming on.
