There are tons of initiatives going around this time of year, especially with a presidential election coming up in a year next November! Oregon, where I'm from, has the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act 2012 and they have over 30,000 signatures so far but need to gather over 125,000 to account for invaslid signatures (87,000 valid signatures I think) to get it on the ballot. Get on cannabistaxact.org and print off a petition or several if you're in OR! If you're not a registered vote but still want to make a difference they have a link on the site to register. Help direct up to $200M in revenue for the state! Exponge people's Cannabis police records! Do away with Cannabis drug testing for employment! Create thousands of jobs! Let people grow their own or buy Cannabis in licensed businesses! Fund research on Cannabis! Allow hemp to be grown as a sustainable crop with over 10,000 uses!
