lol...Buds.

Maybe I am just projecting here because my state is so damn full of chicken $#!T voters.

With 98% of the vote in and

Yes--- 3,342,490-----57.55%
No---- 2,465,036-----42.45%

If there are any stoners in my state that didn't vote I blame them for this.


I don't know but is it normal that amendments have to pass by 60% or is this a special case?

Congratulations however I think you are counting your chickens too soon.

Measure 91
Marijuana legalization
UPDATED: 9:15 PM, NOV 4
66.6% of est. votes counted

Yes 524,457 53.9%
No 448,352 46.1%

You still got about 33% of the vote left to count but I am rooting for you.


Linkage

It was actually called a while ago already. The only measure not called yet is the GMO labeling.

I'm confused (ignorant to anything about voting besides conspiracy theories about it). There are more Yes votes than no. Shouldn't that be a pass?

Congrats Oregon! Waiting on Alaska results-live blog. That would make all three US Pacific NW(coastal states) legal.

Congrats elsewhere, to D.C. and Guam!

FL, ahh really disappointing, election buy off won against it. Was hoping as it's my hometown state, for MM to pass there for those in need of it medicinally.

I understand that some sources will call it with the vote not being a third of the way in and they may be right but I have seen upsets before though I don't think you need to lose sleep on this one.

GMO looks close but it has remained steadily opposed in the counts so far.

Amendment 2 will only pass with 60% of the votes that was why I was asking if that was normal for amendments. It is obvious that the majority favor it but the damn 60% is what killing us.

Sorry to hear that. I'm going to blame some short term memory loss.

Thanks for the condolences.All keeping it legal does is employ street vendors and keep the prisons full I am sure the second part is all part of some people plan. I wonder if the billionaire casino owner who ran propaganda adds against it is invested in the prison for profit system at all.

Florida is the only state that needed 60% to pass. I'm not sure why though. I would appreciate it if anyone here could explain why.

We can smoke in OR 12/3/14 .... we can get the munchies .... but we will not know what it is we are eating! (as in the no gmo label)




the initiative would go into effect on December 3, 2014, at which point adults who are 21 and older could possess, cultivate, and use marijuana legally under state law. By January 1, 2016, the liquor commission must have adopted rules and regulations necessary to implement the Control, Regulation, and Taxation of Marijuana and Industrial Hemp Act and must have finalized all necessary forms and applications as well. Three days later, the commission is required to begin accepting applications for marijuana business licenses. The commission may not unreasonably delay the processing of those applications.

I wish I knew why. It doesn't seem right cause our other amendments were not needing 60%. It is so close to 60% as is. The propaganda and money machines at work.

23 States and DC have allow Medical marijuana.Florida,disappointingly,will have to wait for the next ballot.As a long time mmj user here in Michigan I've seen this movement expand around the country.I'm sure Floridians won't be denied the freedom of choice much longer.

With all the older generation buying into the fear mongering, it will be a good while down here in Florida.

Maybe it will have a chance again in 4 years if Florida can miraculously get a decent person elected to Tallahassee. With Rick Scott and Pam Bondi in office I doubt we will see another medical cannabis amendment on the ballot. This one almost did not make it after Scott, Bondi and a few Florida Supreme Court Justices made up some loopholes to squash the voter initiative before it even made it on the ballot, despite having more than the signatures needed.

Even if it does end up on the ballot, it will still need 60%. Lets us not forget that historically funny things happen at the polls here in Florida.

Some of Florida residents even believe that we already have medical cannabis here because of the Charlotte's Web law, which is essentially a bogus law that was passed by the Florida Senate this year.

The people of Florida are the ones who lost out in this years election.

Oregon I have my fingers crossed for you guys seeing how close it is.

Measure 91
Marijuana legalization
UPDATED: 11:16 PM, NOV 4
71.9% of est. votes counted
Yes 569,730 54.2%
No 480,606 45.8%

The yes votes have it by about 70,000 but there are still a lot of votes left to count. Your only leading by 4.2% it was much higher earlier.

Doesn't 54.2% minus 45.8% equal 8.4%? How did you get 4.2%?

Congratulations Oregon & California for legalizing Cannabis!!!! Alaska's results should be in soon

WTH hasn't B.C, Canada legalized Cannabis yet?? Come on!!! We shouldn't have to vote the Liberals into power just to have cannabis legalized, who knows what horrible things they have on their agenda that we aren't aware of.

Update: Alaska: With 55% counted. YES 52.45% to NO 47.55%

It doesn't work that way.

the vote has to pass over 50%

subtract 4.2 from 54.2 it will give 50

You can't go over 100% in the election.

45.8 + 54.2 = 100

Only 4.2% percent of the vote is deciding the amendment.

Ah ok. But the NO votes still have to catch up to 50% then the other 4.2%?
So in a sense we're ahead 8.4%?

lol sorry for my ignorance here, I realize these should be no brainers.
