Sitting King County Sheriff Steve Strachan, a former D.A.R.E. officer, and his opponent, John Urquhart, a law enforcement vet with two dozen years experience, not only voiced their support for Washington’s I-502 legalization initiative, but fought over which one of them wanted to legalize marijuana more!
The Arkansas Supreme Court rejected an attempt by conservative groups to thwart the will of the people by denying them the chance to vote on a proposed medical marijuana initiative.
Once again, Alison Holcomb represented the legalization initiative she’s shepherded to the ballot and gotten 57% support for in recent polls. Joining her in advocating for the legalization that’s on the ballot was City Attorney Pete Holmes, whose controversial move to not prosecute minor marijuana possession cases partially made this event possible.
A conservative coalition of groups in Arkansas have lost their bid with the Arkansas Supreme Court to deliver oral arguments against the ballot measure seeking to legalize medical marijuana in the state.
Opponents of Question 3 on the Massachusetts ballot to legalize medical use of marijuana are being seriously out-funded by supporters. According to reports from the state’s Office of Campaign and Political Finance, medical marijuana advocates have raised $512,860 since January.
While Oregon is one of three states with marijuana legalization on the ballot, with less than two months to go until the election, the campaign to pass that marijuana legalization is in desperate shape. Oregonians deserve a better shot at legalization and leadership more concerned with actually winning than throwing parties and wasting money.
North Dakota will not be voting on medical marijuana this year, despite a strong effort in gathering signatures for the ballot. It turns out that “strength” is as ill-gotten as those who abuse steroids, for many of the signatures were faked.

Two Oregon marijuana legalization measures struggle to qualify for ballot, “Protect Our Homes” qualifies easily
Is the Oregon Secretary of State’s office unfairly disqualifying marijuana legalization signatures? Why do two marijuana initiatives get 52% validity while an obscure real estate tax amendment gets 77%?
With just 63,804 valid signatures, OMPI has only 54.87% of the 116,284 valid signatures needed to put the amendment on the November ballot. Activists have less than three weeks to collect 52,480 more signatures. With a turn-in validity of 52.15%, that really means another 100,633 signatures are needed.
