Nevadans Get Another Chance to Legalize Pot
The Marijuana Policy Project is trying again with a decriminalization initiative in Nevada this fall. The last one lost by a 39-percent-to-61-percent margin. The folks at MPP say they've tried to address what they see as the major weaknesses of the last campaign. Among other things, the new initiative reduces the amount of pot adults would be permitted to possess from three ounces to one and increases penalties for selling marijuana to minors and for killing someone while driving under the influence of drugs.
