It happened in Washington DC
"Those who count the votes decide everything." Uncle Joe (Stalin)
IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE:
It simply couldn’t happen here, NOT IN AMERICA ; --- BUT IT DID.
By an Act of Congress, -- Our Federal Government, knowingly and willingly, passed a law that in effect, PROHIBITED the use of ALL governmental funds from being used to count the results of a freely held election which was conducted within the District of Colombia. Thus in effect, null and voiding the election results. This was ALL done over the issue of Medical Cannabis ; the (shorten) facts as we see them are as follows:
A HAPPY ENDING:
In what might be seen as one of the few (very few) good things coming out of the first years of the Obama era. In 2009, both the United States Senate and House of Representatives voted to lift the ban against a medical marijuana initiative, effectively overturning the Barr Amendment. Thus physician recommended Medical Cannabis is now (at least in terms of local laws), legal in the District of Washington DC.
WARNING: For historians reading this many years in the future; note that the term “OBAMA ERA” was used above. It was the congress itself, NOT President Obama that put an end to the Barr amendment. At the time of this writing we are only 9 months away from the next presidential election, and one thing is for sure, IT WILL BE A COLD DAY IN HELL before any of us will ever vote for this liar EVER.
