Voters in Guam approved a ballot initiative Tuesday that would legalize marijuana for "debilitating medical conditions" such as epilepsy, HIV, cancer and glaucoma. The vote, which passed by more than 56 percent, makes Guam the first U.S. territory to legalize medical pot.
The decision marks the first victory in a flurry of marijuana-related ballot measuresthis Election Day. Residents of Florida will also vote on a medical marijuana bill, and voters in Alaska, Oregon and Washington, D.C., will decide whether to legalize pot for recreational purposes. Two Maine cities are also voting on full-scale legalization, and two New Mexico counties are mulling decriminalization.
