|California! Arizona! South Dakota! Oregon! Light up the polls – smoke the vote!|
It’s Election Day 2010, and among the issues facing voters in California, Arizona, South Dakota, and Oregon are measures which would change the marijuana laws in those states.
California voters will decide the fate of Proposition 19, the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010, which would legalize the adult possession of limited amounts of marijuana, allow a 5×5-foot growing space, and permit local governments to regulate its commercial production and retail sale.
“If passed, the measure would be the most expansive modern law ever enacted regarding the adult use, production, and distribution of marijuana,” said Paul Armentano, deputy director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML).
