Prop 203 Still has Chance: Lead by Opponents Shrinks Again

Here's a Wikimedia shot of "Purple Erkle" for our commenter in the last post who wanted to see some "purps."
No matter which way this thing goes, it's been a hell of a race.

The fight for Proposition 203, Arizona's medical marijuana measure, is still on as of Monday evening.

Another positive blip for 203 in the late vote counts put the measure at only 3,800 votes behind, according to the latest figures. This means the weekend reversal of the pro-203 trend has been reversed.

The failure to widen the lead of the opponents is good news for 203 supporters. If you want to stay optimistic that 203 will pass, no one could blame you.

 

Of course, it's a fact that the "yes" votes haven't been ahead since the counting began last Tuesday night.

But tens of thousands of votes remain uncounted, including nearly 10,000 from Pima and Coconino counties, where the measure passed handily.About 90,000 early ballots and provisional ballots are left uncounted as of Monday evening in Maricopa County, officials say.

By state law, all the votes must be counted by the end of Friday.

We'll be posting updates on 203 until the fat lady sings.

Gotta love this drunk backwards state. Half the crimes committed in the USA are alchohol related, Half the drugs/chemicals doctors give you have way more side-affects. Marrajuana was God made, and it just goes to show man regects God, and wants man to beleive man is God. Sheeze this state of old drunks stuck in their own way will not only deny 1 of help they need, but also get criminals rich, off the sick. What are they that stupid here? I miss the city!

Yes, they have until Friday to count the votes. Unfortunately I was told at the polling sight if you had a provisional ballot you only had 5 days to show the recorder's office proof of identity to be sure it was recognized. The voter volunteer then told me I could check in a few days on line to see if my voted was counted. I tried to check it, SUPRISE, the web site told me to come back on November 12th. A little too late for it to matter by then.

So, how to change this so next time my vote and others like them will COUNT. Incidentally, I should not have had to use a provisional ballot but the my address change which was filed in April 2010 was not processed properly.

That something is natural, like arsenic or hemlock, doesn't make it good for you honey.

You would know that if you hadn't fried your brain and lost all ability to reason.

Hopefully this passes, and hopefully idiots don't get their hands on what may happen. Only time will tell. If God wants it to happen he'll make it happen. If not theres a reason behind his decision, but either way I'm happy with God's decision, and Broski Love; if it doesn't pass it's because of morons like you! God bless all, and lets keep our fingers crossed!

marcy I have seen you on these websites countless amount of times, bitching about what people should do. Do you even have a life i wonder? probably not, how about if your so against it go make a petition (like us so called lazy stoners did to get it on the ballot in the first place) to get it appealed or are you one of those old asses that's too fat to move from his computer screen and too much of a conservative asshole to see what the big picture here is. People are in real pain and you care more about sniffing glue, pathetic.

I'm getting confused. I've heard votes have to be counted by the ninth. I've heard votes have to be counted by Friday (ten days after the election), and I've heard votes have to be counted by twenty days after the election (as seen here: http://www.azfamily.com/news/M....

I really would like for some of the journalists to get their stories straight. Maybe you guys (New Times) have it right and it's ten days. No matter what, I would really love for someone to provide a link to, or quote of, the law that states how much time there is for votes to be counted in this state.

When is the last time you've been laid Marcy. It seems to me that you are a little on edge. People are going to smoke pot legal or not. Why should we keep medical marijuana away from the people that can actually benefit from it?

Have you ever taken pain medication after a surgery, or an injury? If you answered yes, than you have most likely taken some form of opium. What makes you so much different than someone who uses marijuana for pain?

The fat lady is singing Ray and she isn't hitting any high notes.

I think its still legal to sniff glue, that might have to tide the potheads over until the next election. Oh silly me, the potheads aren't going to stop their criminal behavior just because some silly law didn't pass.

The word is REPEALED not appealed. You pot heads are some of the dumbest clucks in the world.

BTW, since it isn't going to pass there is nothing to repeal.

Go eat some magic mushrooms since you can't deal with reality.

Marcy

The drug cartels don't give a rip because 99.999% of pot consumed in the US is consumed by people who aren't covered by Prop 203.

And if they did care they'd likely take over the medical pot distribution by killing off the competition.

Marcy

The only pain most potheads are treating is their painful inability to deal with reality without chemically altering their brain.

Well, cannabinoids are naturally occurring in our bodies and opiates are not. So, if she answered yes, she's a dirty heroin addict!

So how much money do you think Arizona will waste on lawyers in a fruitless attempt to circumvent the US Constitution with Rusty's latest illegal lawmaking?
