Leaders, It’s Time to Follow the People Toward Legalization | Marijuana
Are you an elected official who opposes marijuana reform? Based on what I’ve been noticing this election cycle, you may be in jeopardy of becoming a victim of your own anti-marijuana propaganda. Voters in Michigan, Missouri, North Dakota, and Utah will vote Nov. 6, 2018, on measures to legalize some form of marijuana use. Accomplished by voter initiatives, the ballot measures in Michigan and North Dakota would legalize recreational marijuana for those 21 and older. Meanwhile, voters in Utah and Missouri will cast their ballots for or against medical marijuana. We seem to be at the marijuana-reform crossroads in this country. While it’s been incredible to witness the demise of prohibition and the start of legalization, it’s disheartening and disturbing to know that some elected officials are made uncomfortable by the idea of informed adults turning to marijuana for medicinal or recreational use. With that thought in mind, here are a few things to consider before the November vote.
