There was an ELECTION in Maryland
Tuesday, June 24th 2014
Only about 20% of registered MD voters participated in this Election.
Do you know what 20% is? It’s a discount you get at a store.
20 out of 100% is NOT a passing grade.
Especially in an election where Cannabis legalization was at stake…
In fact, it’s a depressingly low level of participation in a system that can determine the next people who run our local and state governments…
This is AMERICA!
The land of freedom and democracy.
Don’t be lazy and USE IT.
