Marijuana Ballot Initiatives

Gay Marriage, Dope Poised to Win Approval in WA

A little liberty won at the ballot box


Two Washington ballot initiatives with nationwide ramifications, legalization of same-sex marriage and legalizing and regulating marijuana sales, have growing leads and are likely to pass next Tuesday, according to the latest Washington Poll.

The poll of 722 registered—and 632 likely—voters shows President Obama with an expanding lead in the Evergreen State, and Democrat Jay Inslee with a wafer-thin 48.7-45.6 percent lead over Republican Rob McKenna in the contest for Governor.
