I agree, the voters in the state of Washington voted for lower car tabs and the state circumvented it.What happened to the will of the people who put their idiot asses in office?
The cops make lots of money off of drugs. They use "fighting" the drug boogie man as an excuse to continually increase their budgets.South Dakota police have filed suit to overturn a voter-approved amendment to the state constitution that legalized marijuana earlier this month.
Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom and Highway Patrol Superintendent Rick Miller filed a lawsuit seeking to invalidate the amendment last week despite South Dakota voters signaling their clear approval of marijuana legalization during the election.
"I've dedicated my life to defending and upholding the rule of law," Thom said in a statement. "The South Dakota Constitution is the foundation for our government and any attempt to modify it should not be taken lightly. I respect the voice of the voters in South Dakota, however in this case I believe the process was flawed and done improperly, due to no fault of the voters."
Around 70 percent voted in favor of a separate initiative allowing medical use, while the amendment permitting recreational use was approved by about 54 percent of voters. South Dakota was one of four states that voted to legalize recreational marijuana use this year, as well as the first state ever to approve both medical and recreational use at the same time.
This is so wrong...

This seems to happen all the time and I believe destructive to our republic.
Are you saying that there has been a final ruling on that?
If so then I'm so very glad.
We voted for light rail and to upgrade our infrastructure.
tim eymann's stupid 30 dollar car tabs tried to stop it all.
The building of it has been underway for years now.
If what you say is true, I'm so glad that the court ruled that the vote of the people years ago supersedes tim eymann and his stupid 30 dollar car tabs.
That man is so hated even by republicans that he couldn't even get past the primary. LOL.
