Tuesday night, November 6, will be one to remember for cannabis law reform. Measures are on the ballot in at least six states and a number of localities, including three statewide legalization measures in Colorado, Oregon, and Washington.

Thanks to Darby Beck of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) for the following list of votes to watch:

Legalization Measures

Colorado, Amendment 64: Initiative to legalize and regulate marijuana for adults over 
   21.
Oregon, Measure 80: Initiative to legalize and regulate marijuana for adults over 21.
Washington, I-502: Initiative to legalize and regulate marijuana for adults over 21.

Medical Marijuana Measures

Arkansas, Issue 5: Initiative to allow medical marijuana for certain conditions.
Massachusetts, Question 3: Initiative to allow medical marijuana for certain conditions.
Montana, Referendum 124: Referendum on Senate Bill 423 that changed (and effectively
   all but repealed) medical marijuana law approved by voters in I-148. A "No" vote would 
   overturn SB 423 and its overly strict regulation of medical marijuana. 

Local Measures

Detroit, MI, Proposal M: Initiative amending city code to remove criminal penalties for 
   possession of less than one ounce of marijuana on private property by adults (21+).
Flint, MI: Initiative amending city code to remove criminal penalties for possession of 
   less than one ounce of marijuana on private property by adults (19+).
Ypsilanti, MI: An initiative making enforcement of laws against possessing small 
   amounts of marijuana by adults (21+) the city's lowest law enforcement priority.
Grand Rapids, MI, Proposal 2: Would make possession of marijuana a civil offense, 
   punishable by a fine only (like a traffic ticket) rather than jail time.
Kalamazoo, MI, Charter Amendment Proposal #7: An initiative that would allow up to 
   three medical marijuana dispensaries in the city.
Burlington, VT: Question to measure support for statewide marijuana legalization.
