From: Bill Dake – December 4, 2012
Having the legal age at 18 would cause many to think “not our kids,no way”, which would cause us to lose support. While if it is 21, there will be those who break the law and do it anyway. True it would be better to allow 18 as far as fairness is concerned, but it would seem wiser to use 21 and be sure. We have state speed limits and we generally drive 5-15 MPH faster and most speeders get a pass as they are driving within the flow of traffic. It will be the same with the 18 year old who would be living with the 21 rule. If it were 18 then we would have more younger ages involved, which may be harmful to immature minds. Whether true or not, we would be hit with all kinds of negative BS defending the 18 year old option and that might sink us. Peace, bill Sent: Monday, December 3, 2012 3:25 PM
Perhaps instead of naming a particular age, the initiative language could read that a person who is old enough to legally serve in the military can legally use marijuana. There is a lot of resentment over the fact that teens can be sent to war who are not old enough to legally drink a beer (or in this case, smoke a joint), and this language would focus attention on that fact.
