What's on the California ballot this year that pot activists should be stoked on? Absolutely nothing! (Unless you're interested in eliminating the death penalty, labeling Frankenfoods, and saving City College of course -- in which case check out our smart phone-viewable SFBG election guide)

But there's a lot going on in other states. Law Enforcement Against Prohibition has a list of ballot measures across the country that, if passed, will improve access to cannabis. The site will also be offering live coverage of how the propositions are lookin'. And so will we, so check back here and on our Facebook and Twitter pages. 

 

Colorado Amendment 64: Initiative to legalize and regulate marijuana for adults over 21.

Montana Referendum 124: Referendum on Senate Bill 423 that changed medical marijuana law approved by voters in I-148. Yes vote would overturn the democratic law and further restrict medical marijuana.
