Free marijuana offered to California residents to vote for Democrats (Video)
So typical. There is of course no proof that Democrats are behind the flyer going around offering free marijuana to those who vote for certain California Democrats, but umm, I wouldn’t be surprised. Eagle Rock is represented in the U.S. House of Representatives by far left Marxist Xavier Becerra, so it’s not like this is a conservative or libertarian area.
Fliers offering $40 worth of free medical-grade marijuana were reportedly passed out in Eagle Rock to try and draw residents to vote in the local election.
Was the free pot an incentive to get a larger turnout? Politics ranked “high” on resident’s list of priorities. Nearly 10 times as many voters – 792 residents – turned out to the polls during the recent Neighborhood Council elections than last year.
“It’s a little weird that people can’t come out and vote on their own. I see that as a problem, as a social symptom,” Eagle Rock resident Joerael Elliott said.
