Prop 19, California’s ballot initiative to legalize marijuana, is projected to be defeated at the polls today. The results currently show Prop 19 down 56-43 with 20% reporting, but will get much closer as the rest of the state reports. It’s clear though that 2010 is not the year California will legalize marijuana. The Yes on 19 campaign released a statement conceding the election.

It certainly looks like the South Dakota Highway Patrol is interfering with the state’s medical marijuana ballot initiative, which is in a tight race ahead of November 2.
The campaign for Measure 13, South Dakota’s medical marijuana initiative, called out the state Highway Patrol for a big media push last week around two separate marijuana busts from August that the Patrol tied to out-of-state medical marijuana patients.

Arizona, Oregon and South Dakota have medical marijuana measures on the ballot thath have received little attention. These initiatives are being run by people who are really committed state grassroots activists, but they are seriously understaffed and under resourced. So Just Say Now volunteered to help all of them — as well as the Prop 19 campaign — with our phone banking, event, fundraising and email tools.
So if you’ve bought a T-shirt from the Just Say Now store, or you’ve given a donation to the Just Say Now campaign, take a spin at the new South Dakota Measure 13 and Oregon Measure 74 websites and have a look at your handiwork. Because your support made it possible.

This morning, Just Say Now is proud to announce a new tool to put marijuana reform directly in the hands of activists: online phone banking to identify supporters of marijuana reform before November’s election.
There are thousands of voters in Arizona, California, Oregon, and South Dakota who we need to vote for marijuana reforms. We’re targeting calls to young voters and “surge voters” – people who turned out in 2008 but who are not yet likely to vote in the midterm elections.
