    ANOTHER TRY AT LEGALIZATION (LINK)

    It failed in 2000 66% against to 33% for. In my opinion, it lost for two reasons.

    1. The minor reason (I say minor, as I don't think this part of it had that much of an effect, but apparently enough that they are changing it this time):

    Was because they tried legalizing up to 3 oz. This time they are going for only 1.

    2. The major reason:

    Last time there was another proposition on the ballot (that passed) and that was the defense of marriage act. It passed 66% to 33%.

    The Mormon Church is very powerful (believe it or not) in Las Vegas and during the last election the Mormons voted enmasse in support of the defesne of marriage act. I believe those same Mormans voted against the legalization of MJ.

    I am hoping this time they spend election day in the temple! :p:

    Dude, I am united!

    The only thing I hate about the Nevada initiative is that it is being sponsored by Soros.

    Not a pothead per se, but I do support the legalization of MJ and all associated products.

    Sorry... I've never smoked pot. Don't know that I would if it were legal. But I do support legalization.
