Parties fight for by election underdog status; Trump win
On Nov. 12, 2016, voters in Washington state approved a ballot measure that will require a two-thirds majority to pass a marijuana policy change.
Here’s a closer look:
Q. What does it look like?
A. Supporters gathered at the Ballot Initiative Campaign in Seattle, which has become one of the first statewide campaigns to try to get voters to approve state legalization. “This vote on recreational marijuana has been very close,” said Chris Holcomb, executive director of the initiative campaign. “We’re looking forward to doing it again on November 9.”
Q. Will voters choose between recreational marijuana and medical?
A. As usual, the answer is far from clear: The first ballot question asks voters whether they would support a marijuana legalization measure if it is approved in the November general election. No marijuana legalization initiative has ever been approved since Washington began allowing medical marijuana in 1997.
The ballot also asks whether voters support allowing marijuana companies to grow and transport their product in Washington. That proposal is opposed by both the Washington Health Department, which says i에스엠 카지노t would limit access to cannabis, and the Washington Cannabis Industry Association.
Q. How are the rules for the ballot question written?
A. The question is simple: Should the recreational initiative measure passed next year go forward, recreational marijuana would be decriminalized and sold at a legal price of $24 a gram ($25 for those over age 21). It would not be legalized under the ballot question, which would remain in place until voters vote on it.
The other legal question is whether patients would be allowed to receive medical marijuana without facing potential prosecution. The ballot question doesn’t answer that question; it only asks, “Can adults legally get medical marijuana from their doctor without facing prosecution and risk being charged with a misdemeanor?”
Q. Will Washington voters choose a medical marijuana medical marijuana initiative?
A. No, the ballot doesn’t address that. But an initiative in the state would allow for medical marijuana dispensaries; there could be many other possible ballot questions.
Q. So there’s no way for voters to choose, except by ballot question, “should medical marijuana be allowed?”
A. No. Voters cannot use that question to di해운대출장샵rect federal resources. There’s currently an administrative process for such decisions.
Q. Will people vote on the medical ques샌즈 카지노tion?
A. The ballot question, and state law, says no. So voters must decide whether to approve the ide
