in CO, there's actually a decently close race to legalizing marijuana! And you'd be surprised who's pushing for it... Can't say I voted for it, but I do generally side with those who are supporting this issue. Just not this time!

Oh boy, I can top that -- TERM LIMITS! I mean legalization of marijuana could be a hot button topic, but suggesting term limits for my town's elected officials -- now that's controversy!

On a serious note, there's a vote on a constitutional amendment that would impact teacher's pensions. Given all the problems this state has with its pension problems, we're not going to have a happy ending.

oooh... that stinks about pensions. We have something similar when it comes to whether or not some state personnel can be exempt from things (voted NO) and we also had a term limit issue, but I think that will pass pretty well

I'm not totally against the legalization of marijuana. There are lots of really reasonable arguments for it. Like taxation.

Nothing on the KC ballot. Something about a boat tax, but I skipped it because I didn't know anything about it.

On the MI ballot there was a propose energy amendment that had me pretty heated I didn't know until my dad told me, but it was pretty baloney. It didn't pass.

No, I don't think it did pass. Unfortunate though.

We had "Question 6" which was:
Question 6
Referendum Petition
Civil Marriage Protection Act (Ch. 2 of the 2012 Legislative Session)

Establishes that Maryland’s civil marriage laws allow gay and lesbian couples to obtain a civil marriage license, provided they are not otherwise prohibited from marrying; protects clergy from having to perform any particular marriage ceremony in violation of their religious beliefs; affirms that each religious faith has exclusive control over its own theological doctrine regarding who may marry within that faith; and provides that religious organizations and certain related entities are not required to provide goods, services, or benefits to an individual related to the celebration or promotion of marriage in violation of their religious beliefs.

For the Referred Law
Against the Referred Law

And it passed with 51% vote! I was one in support of it!
