Really want to turn those red or purple state blue: Do like Nevada. Legalize pot.

How about legalizing pot and passing 10% tax on it and funding a public option health insurance with the proceeds?

Estimates were way low in how much the states that legalized it would raise from the taxes. Those states are flush with tax cash. Could this be the answer to funding health care insurance for where Medicaid was not expanded or in place of Medicaid expansion for the newly insured?

1. Ohio tried to legalize pot a couple years ago

 

Didn't work

ETA: I will concede though that the referendum was severely flawed.

3. You do know the definition of a Libertarian, right? A Republican who smokes pot.

Legalizing pot will not turn a red state blue.
