With three states having cannabis legalization measures on the ballot this November, it raises the question of how long before other states decide to take on the same initiative? Will Nevada be the next in line to legalize? Nevada has attempted to legalize in the past to no avail. But that doesn’t mean they have given up on the idea. All of us that support full legalization are keeping a close eye on this year’s election. And we are wondering not if, but when will other states follow their lead and bring an end to prohibition at a state level? The three states involved for this November are receiving a ton of press. The spokeswoman for the Marijuana Policy Project, Morgan Fox had this to say about the pending elections: “If any of them pass, it will be the first time since the widespread prohibition of marijuana that any state pulled back; it will be a really big deal.” It’s crucial that these measures pass in order to prove to the undecided and non-believers that the majority of Americans truly believe the war on drugs has failed miserably and should be abolished.
I think it’s safe to say if one or all of the three measures or voted in it will only be a matter of witnessing that the sky will in fact not fall before we see more states jump on board. If all the measures were to fail it could mean a major setback for the movement. Time will tell and that time is growing closer every day. If you are already registered to vote in your area help increase our chances by telling a friend to register or by reminding them to get out and vote. We can win this together! Unite and vote!
