National battle for marijuana legalization

Posted By on Fri, Jun 4, 2010 at 4:35 PM

Ballot initiatives in California, South Dakota, Oregon, Arizona, Detroit and Washington are poised to change the face of marijuana legislation in large sections of the country, says Paul Armentano for AlterNet:

California: In what is arguably the most significant marijuana law reform measure in several decades, California voters will decide on The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010.

South Dakota: South Dakota voters will decide this November on Measure 13, The South Dakota Safe Access Act — which would exempt state criminal penalties for the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana or six plants by authorized patients.

Oregon: Voters are anticipated to decide this November on a statewide measure to authorize the creation of nonprofit medical marijuana dispensaries, which would be legally able to distribute cannabis provided by private growers.
