The nov 8th ballot might (seems likely now) to include the Adult Use of Marijuana Act . The measure would allow adults ages 21 and up to possess, transport and use up to an ounce of marijuana for recreational purposes and grow as many as six plants.
Enough signatures were collected to put the measure on the ballot. (Currently sitting at over 600,000.)
The balance here is the lost 'war on drugs'. Now, lead by Colorado, governments realize the revenue potential of legalize small quantities of the drug. A 15% tax is anticipated to be pegged on sales.
