Chicagoans! Now you GOTTA vote!

Should Chicago ban plastic straws? The questions that may be on your ballot.
Chicago Sun Times

Voters in the City of Chicago will be asked:

• “In the event marijuana is legalized, should the City of Chicago appropriate revenue from the sale of marijuana to increase funding for Chicago Public Schools and for mental health services?”


I want to put the Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Teachers Union in the position of actively promoting marijuana.

For the children.
• “Should the City of Chicago ban the use of plastic straws within the corporate city limits?”


Wouldn't it be cool if in the end it were CHICAGO that destroys The PlanetTM with the last straw?

They could fill the staws with marijuana. For the children, of course. Won't someone think of the children?!?
