On the ballot for the Presidency, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green). Make a special note to remember to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party candidates, Gov. Gary Johnson and Dr. Jill Stein to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1

Take 3 Minutes to Learn More about Question 3 at: http://mavotenoonquestion3.com/question-3-in-3-minutes/ Question 3 is a "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" warn citizens in California and Colorado where pot stores have proliferated under a law similar to the one proposed here. The language in this 6-page law includes "other conditions" which allows virtually anyone to get a marijuana recommendation for any reason. There can be 35 pot stores in the first year, but there is no upper limit in the law. This is the LEAST RESTRICTIVE marijuana law in New England. With an undefined 60-day supply, amounting to hundreds of joints, allowed on a person or in a car, theft and diversion to black market sales are inevitable. Home grow sites are already subject to criminal break-ins in neighborhoods as close as Rhode Island. And even the Obama administration has called rising levels of youth use and addiction a legitimate public health issue. There has to be a better way to be compassionate. Please get the details before you vote. To learn about Question 3 go to: www.MaVoteNoOnQuestion3.com
