vote for marijuanaCitizens For Sensible Law Enforcement Files Over 120,000 Signatures to Qualify for Early Turn-In

Citizens for Sensible Law Enforcement today will file enough signatures today to meet the early turn-in deadline and allow the Secretary of State to begin counting its signatures, according to Chief Petitioner Bob Wolfe. The campaign will crack the 120,000 signature mark with today’s turn-in.

“This is yet another milestone in our effort to end marijuana prohibition in Oregon,” said Wolfe. “These 120,000 signatures with six weeks to go put us right on track to qualify for the November ballot.”

Initiative Petition 24 would allow adults 21 and over personal use of marijuana provided their actions do not endanger children or public safety. It allows the state to establish regulations, but says that no criminal sanctions or forfeiture proceedings can be levied against adults who use marijuana for personal use.

“As we saw in the Democratic Primary for Oregon’s Attorney General, the voters of this state are ready to welcome an end to marijuana prohibition provided it is done in a safe and sensible manner. Our initiative does that and today marks yet another major benchmark in our efforts.”

About Jay Smoker

I have been smoking marijuana for almost twenty years and I have no plans to stop anytime soon. My life was turned upside down in 2009 after getting arrested and tossed in jail for being in the wrong state with legal medical marijuana. I got fed up, and I now devote all my time to ending this insanity.I am responsible for the technical side of this project, but try to chip in when I can, either with syndicated articles or original content.Follow me on Facebook and Twitter.Feel free to email. any questions or concerns. Peace!

    My problem is it does not define clearly what  “do not endanger children or public safety” means.

       If everyone were a responsible/sensible adult, we wouldn’t need laws in general. You need a definition? I’m fairly certain your definition is somewhere in the OMMA. Keep it locked away from kids. Keep it out of sight of the public. Don’t smoke in public, or in your car/vehicle while driving. DUH.

    I would love for a law like this to come to Louisiana. My mother passed away after a seven year fight with cancer. At the end of her battle cannabis was a miracle for her pain, state of mind, and eating. We can buy pure alcohol in a drive thru here, but can’t buy cannabis is ridiculous to me.
