Maine voters decided last night that they didn’t care for same sex marriages but rolling up a spliff for what ails you was OK. Gay activists hit another roadblock as they try to get one state in the union to pass a referendum that will allow same sex marriage. This is the 31st time an initiative to allow same sex marriages was defeated at the ballot box by voters. Last year California shocked gay activists when voters voted no for same sex marriage there. But while Maine decided (No) for gay marriages they voted (YES) for medical marijuana which will expand already current medical marijuana laws. The expansion will provide state regulated dispensaries that can grow and dispense medical marijuana to patients of Maine.
