Santa Feans want to decriminalize cannabis

ProgressNow New Mexico and Drug Policy Action need at least 5,763 valid signatures from registered voters within city limits to force a vote on their proposal. They turned in 7,126 signatures. The proposed initiative, which mirrors an initiative that the groups also are trying to get on the ballot in the city of Albuquerque, calls for making the penalty for possession of an ounce or less of marijuana and possession of marijuana-associated paraphernalia a civil infraction punishable by a fine of no more than $25.

Back in February Kevin Woster penned a remembrance of the SDSU Collegian from the early Janklow era: several old-timers wrote about their own memories of those days. This blog looked at it when KW put it up but it wasn't known until Herb called about his pending real estate sale that the thread had so many comments.

Getting Herb packed and loaded because he sold the ranch at Devils Tower took three days as did his exodus back to Indiana. He and his brother drove two rigs stacked to the moon. The trip from Rapid City to the ranch south of Santa Fe with a load of hay and a water tank strapped to the new trailer was long but uneventful.

Democrats fleeing red states is nothing new: for Herb it's out of the Wyoming frying pan into the Hoosier fire. For this blog it's simply a life-saving measure to flee the Nazi christofascist enclave that South Dakota and the Black Hills have become.
