Marijuana Ballot Initiatives Unintended Consequences
[UPDATE on Eureka council set to consider medical marijuana ordinance – Tuesday, July 20, 2010]
Interesting article in the Atlantic by Senior Editor Joshua Greene. He writes about how putting something on the ballot that actually means something to a certain segment of society moves that group, in this case younger people, under 35, to participate — vote.
Are there benefits for the Democrats, Republicans or or does any of this just plain help the people to have a say?
