D.C. and Oregon Vote to Legalize Marijuana; Alaska Results to Come * 1
    #755965 - 11/05/14 01:20 AM (2 years, 1 month ago)

Washington, D.C., voters resoundingly passed a marijuana legalization initiative with 69 percent of the vote on Tuesday. The Associated Press projects that a similar proposal has passed in Oregon; with 60 percent of precincts reporting, the proposition had 54 percent of the vote.

Polls in Alaska, where voters are also considering legalizing marijuana, will close at 1 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday morning.

Voters in Florida did not pass a proposal to legalize marijuana for medical purposes. That proposal was a constitutional amendment, which needed 60 percent of the vote to pass, but had just 57 percent with 98 percent of precincts in.

The nation’s capital, Oregon and possibly Alaska will follow the lead of Colorado and Washington state, which approved legal marijuana by ballot initiative in 2012. But in the case of the District of Columbia, Congress can overrule the voters’ choice, and Representative Andy Harris, a Republican from Maryland, has signaled his intention to push Congress to do so.

Pre-election polls in Alaska painted an unclear picture: The only recent public polls were conducted by interested parties. Unsurprisingly, pro-legalization forces found the question ahead, and opponents found it behind.

Legalization in Colorado has produced mixed results since January. Crime in the state has continued to fall. But there have been some concerns regarding marijuana edibles, which the state public health department recently recommended prohibiting. And government revenues have fallen short of expectations, in part because many users continue to rely on Colorado’s lightly taxed medical marijuana system.

There is less data from Washington state, where legal sales did not begin until July.
