So why are Utahns fussing over the medical marijuana debate? Why all the fear and panic from its opponents? Even if it reaches a ballot and is voted in, the powers that be will find a way to stop it.

I am reminded of a time a few decades back when TRAX was on the ballot. We the people opposed it; however, shortly thereafter, we poor ignorant idiots were told that we had no idea what we voted down so it was built anyway. And people ask me why I don’t vote anymore.

Save your breath, dear advocates; marijuana is not the danger. The real threat is the powers that be.
