Does anyone know how that drug thing went down or anything else we voted on.

I know the unmarried sex partners adopting thing passed, although Washington county was 1 of 3 that the bulk said no.

Our county voted for McCain though.

Lottery passes which was nice.

I think weed for adults was decrimalized which i favored.

However, I was really saddened(no sarcasm here) to see that single people or unmarried (gay or straight) couples can no longer adopt or foster children. It is unfortunate for the kids. I hope those who voted against this step up and provide care for the orphans. Besides, Turk needs a little brother for me to corrupt. Her family can afford it.

unfortunately it was not decriminalized, just made the lowest priority for law enforcement. If the cops have nothing better to be doing when they find weed on somebody, that person won't just be getting a ticket.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but the laws that make possession of marijuana a criminal offense are state laws and can't really be changed by fayetteville.

It will be interesting to see if the brass at the FPD actually heed this mandate (i.e. discourage and/or reprimand officers who bring people in on these charges when they should be dealing with "higher priority" offenses).

i thought it was funny that a part of the weed amendment was that the city of fayetteville will write a letter to d.c. over and over until they do the same thing or something like that. also it really does suck that the homo phobinos passed the adoption thing, it's not like they are just throwing out babies to wildly decadent or otherwise bad people as it is, they still have to be top notch, and it also means that single siblings of dead parents couldn't adopt their nephews or nieces or whatnot. people are silly. boo us.

That really sucks bad. That's the only thing outside of politicians I voted for. I really wanted that one to pass. This isn't to say I am against some gambling and dank nug, I just wasn't exactly sure what I was voting on. Seriously though, I wonder what some orphans who know their chance of being adopted just took a huge hit would say?

do you mean you voted for this? or that you voted on this, and against it?

If I voted wrong at least I had good intentions and it wasn't decided by one vote.

Arkansans voted to leave orphans homeless and elected a man who does not believe in public education to represent us. I guess I'm not surprised Mark Martin won, but I really didn't think that ridiculous adoption restriction stood a chance of passing. Maybe more people were confused about whether they were voting for or against it. And maybe we're just backwards. Did you know heifer international offers livestock to Arkansas families?

I'm guessing that many people misinterpreted the adoption vote. A lady at work did, seems Elvin did, I think Evil did .... so that's probably a 30% "wrong intention" in the votes cast.
Part of the problem seems to be that there WAS a DHS mandate restricting the fostering/adoption by unmarrieds & gays, but that was overturned and abandoned by DHS, and THEN the "make our families righteous and religious" groups got all upset and got the signatures to put the issue on the ballot, thus confusing some that thought the vote was to "overturn" the "non-existing" law, rather than to impose the restriction by law Crying or Very sad
