Voters in California, Arizona, South Dakota, and Oregon have a chance today to change their states’ marijuana laws.
Will citizens grasp their opportunity to make history? We’re soon to find out.
Here are handy resources to keep up with the election results in all four states:
The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010 would legalize possession of limited amounts of marijuana by adults, allow a 5×5-foot growing space, and permit local governments to regulate and tax commercial sales.
The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act would permit state-registered patients to buy cannabis legally from licensed dispensaries. Patients living more than 25 miles from the nearest dispensary would be allowed to cultivate their own marijuana.
The South Dakota Safe Access Act would exempt state-authorized patients from criminal penalties for up to an ounce of marijuana or six cannabis plants.
The Oregon Regulate Medical Marijuana Supply System Act of 2010 would create state-licensed nonprofit facilities which would grow and distribute cannabis to authorized patients.
Keep up with Measure 74 results at KPTV.com, since the Oregon Secretary of State’s page is pretty much unnavigable and doesn’t seem to have an election results interface, anyway. Medical marijuana is the third measure up from the bottom of the page.
