    I'm new to this forum, so bear with me.

    I was checking out poll decisions state-2-state, when I came across this ballot:

    Would legalize the cultivation, use and sale of marijuana for persons 21 and older; the state and local government would regulate marijuana like alcohol and tobacco; doctors would be able to prescribe drugs to all patients, including children; public use laws could be enacted by the government as well as laws in the interest of public safety.

    What would the ramifications be for other states if this is passed?

    no ramification..

    it's more likely that the federal government will try to stamp on it, a la john ashcroft and the recently prosecuted distributors of medical marijuana in california.

    it was on our ballots last time around, and being this is a very conservative state, it did not pass. there was petitioning to get it on the pallot again this year, but not enough signtures where collected.

    i dont think it will happen here

    it would still be against federal law, but its a step in the right direction. oregon has a ballot measure this year (33) thats trying to establish medical marijuana dispensiaries (sp?) and raise the legal plant growing limit for those who grow for medical purposes. currently only 40% voted yes on the measure :(
