Prop. 5, mentioned in the previous post, is expected to pass. There's also encouraging news from other states on the medical marijuana front. In Michigan, Proposal 1, which would allow patients to use marijuana under the advice of a licensed doctor is favored by a solid majority of 59-37, according to a recent statewide poll. Michigan Technology News, for entrepreneurs, has a favorable interview with one of the proponents.
Meanwhile, in Idaho a Republican legislator, Tom Trail, is working on a medical marijuana proposal he plans to introduce in the legislature in January. I spent a fair amount of time in northern Idaho when I was working on my book, "Ambush at Ruby Ridge," and it is very conservative country. For a Republican to make this proposal is encouraging, although it might be a tough sell with Idaho voters.
