Marijuana Legalization Groups in Maine Join Forces on Ballot Measure

Two groups that had backed competing ballot initiatives to make recreational use of marijuana legal in Maine agreed on Monday to join forces on one measure to put before voters in 2016.

The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Maine agreed to put its name behind a new ballot measure that was submitted by Legalize Maine. Legalize Maine has already collected over 40,000 signatures of voters who support the initiative.  A total of 61,000 signatures are needed to put the measure on the statewide ballot.

Since the legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Oregon, attitudes about the substance nationwide are changing drastically. A Gallup poll released last week found that 58 percent of U.S. residents believe marijuana should be legal.

Members of the two different groups from two different states are now indicating they are going to join forces soon. Is opens up a unique opportunity for states to work together on initiatives and ballot measures.

The activists in California, Massachusetts and Maine are all drafting competing initiatives. While other states, like Ohio who is ready to vote on legalization next month, are further along in the process.
