|Initiate This, Too!|
||You may remember receiving a message from us last month concerning various marijuana initiatives on the ballot this fall. A lot has happened since then ....|
||Proposition 19, California. Six drug former czars composed an OpEd for the Los Angeles Times, laying out their opposition to Prop 19 by oddly asserting, "Marijuana, though, is easy and cheap to cultivate, indoors or out." One wonders what they have been growing. http://www.mapinc.org/drugnews/v10/n690/a04.html|
||Measure 74, Oregon. A Citizens' Initiative Review panel voted in support of Measure 74. The panel's findings become part of the Oregon Voters' Pamphlet that reaches every voting household in the state. http://www.mapinc.org/drugnews/v10/n677/a07.html|
||Numerous cities and counties, Colorado. Colorado voters will be busy this fall deciding a number of local initiatives. The proposals vary. Passage of one measure would allow "medical marijuana-infused products manufacturers within the City of Ouray." http://www.mapinc.org/drugnews/v10/n696/a03.html However, Mesa County voters could ban dispensaries all together, as could at least six other Colorado counties. http://www.mapinc.org/drugnews/v10/n688/a07.html|
