The Congresswoman has been a strong voice for improving our nation’s security and has worked hard for the people of the 36th District.

This is a district I know well. The two main economic engines on either side of the district — the port and the airport — have been two of my biggest focuses on the city council, as I have worked hard to create jobs and economic opportunity for everyone.

marijuana-herb.jpgThe only debate there should be is who to yell at for not having taxed it this whole time. Where are our pitchfork and torches?

And yes by “pitchforks and torches” we mean pinch pipes and TAXES.

From LAT:

Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn has proposed that the council consider imposing a tax on sales of medical marijuana.

Los Angeles has hundreds of medical marijuana dispensaries. As California’s local and state governments look to plug their budget deficits, attention has started to focus on marijuana as an untapped source.
