I was wondering whether these referendums on the ballot will swell numbers of Democrats turning out. Wadda you think?

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Backers of broad marijuana legalization are looking to break through a geographic barrier in November and get their first foothold in the Midwest after a string of election victories in Northeastern and Western states.

Michigan and North Dakota, where voters previously authorized medical marijuana, will decide if the drug should be legal for any adult 21 and older. They would become the 10th and 11th states to legalize so-called recreational marijuana since 2012, lightning speed in political terms.

Meantime, Missouri and Utah will weigh medical marijuana, which is permitted in 31 states after voters in conservative Oklahoma approved such use in June. Even if Utah’s initiative is defeated, a compromise reached last week between advocates and opponents including the Mormon church would have the Legislature legalize medical marijuana.

No. People who want to restrict its use will turn out in greater numbers. But I have no data to support that, I'm just blowing smoke.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

the short answer I think, is yes. In Massachusetts, we had more interest and I believe a slightly higher turnout because of the referendum but there was also that matter of the presidential election.
