Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery's on another one of his righteousness sprees, this time declaring his thought that just about anyone involved in the voter-approved medical marijuana can be prosecuted.

That's also his opinion about porn, if that means anything.

Montgomery -- who also believes the Arizona Legislature can legally ban all abortions -- would like to see the will of the voters flushed down the toilet in this case.

But, as our colleague Ray Stern reported yesterday, Montgomery says there's a way to get around his antics.

"I'm drawing a line," Montgomery said. "If people don't want me to draw that line, they need to choose somebody else."

How do you like the sound of that?

The alternative is Libertarian candidate Michael Kielsky, by the way.
