I love the "Arguments" sections of the voter information packets -- the part where they get partisans on each side of the propositions to write a short essay about whether they should or shouldn't be made into law. They're so educational!

For example, this year I learned that here in Massachusetts, marijuana is so overpriced that people can only afford to purchase it in half-gram increments:
Decriminalization emboldens and enables drug dealers and poses a threat to public health and safety. One ounce of marijuana -- street value $600 -- equates to approximately 56 individual sales. --Michael O'Keefe, President, MA District Attorneys Association
