Defeat of State Marijuana Legalization Initiatives


Dear friends:

We were successful in pushing back against the drug legalizers in all three states:

  • South Dakota voted 52% to 48% not to legalize marijuana as medicine.
  • Nevada voted 56% to 44% not to legalize possession of marijuana for all
  • Colorado strongly voted to not legalize possession of marijuna for all
    purposes at a 2-1 ratio.


Thanks and congratulations to everyone who helped us in these battles!
