I work at a gas station in Denver, and of the people I talk politics with, Bernie outnumbers everyone else at least 10:1. I support Bernie, and I support weed, but I'm not voting for Bernie for weed, the black market has our backs if some douchenozzle gets in. I support many other Bernie policies. I vote based on policies, not political parties.
