Pro-marijuana donors with deep pockets are pouring millions into legalization measures on the ballot in Washington and Colorado, but they appear to be bypassing a similar pot campaign in Oregon.


Marijuana-legalization advocates connected with billionaire donors George Soros and Peter Lewis say the Oregon measure doesn't appear as politically attractive as it is in the two other states, the Oregonian reported. In Washington, two recent polls show a majority favoring legalization.


Oregon's Measure 80 has not polled nearly as well, which is a "cause for concern and a disincentive" to donate money, Ethan Nadelmann, a prominent national opponent of the nation's drug laws, told the newspaper. He heads Drug Policy Action, a New York-based nonprofit that donated $715,000 in Washington and another $90,000 in Colorado.

Whats wrong with Michigan are we the red headed stepchild of the medical states?

I think you're exactly righton that, Kd. This same group DPA or ENadelman just did a nation-wide tour to stop the Drug War and skipped right by Mich. They went to Chicago Sep 3, Toledo?[unscheduled] on the 4th and Cleveland? on the 5th. I wanted to catchup with them but I didn't get back here till the 5th. Even still they didn't get any media coverage - no surprise. Apparently we are on some kinda no-fly zone. Or they need some representation in Michigan ...

Ohhhhh here he is now ...
