This may be a long shot, but worth a try.

If you know anyone in North Dakota, call them and make a case for a yes vote on Measure 3. It really is a great legalization measure, and would impact so many good North Dakotans who are wrapped up in this drug war. ND is currently 5th per capita for incarcerating cannabis offenders (victims).

It feels so close! If you could change one prohibitionist's mind, it may make the difference!

Please, and thank you 420 family!

NORTH DAKOTA
In North Dakota, voters are considering Measure 3, which in addition to fully legalizing recreational marijuana, would also expunge many marijuana-related criminal records. Unlike many other legalization measures, however, Measure 3 does not create a system to tax and regulate marijuana sales. Instead it permits residents to grow unlimited amounts of marijuana and then sell it tax-free. In other states that have legalized pot, anyone growing marijuana for sale is strictly regulated, and the amount people can buy is tightly controlled.
The measure, which hews to libertarian ideals, also repeals any state laws addressing marijuana, which opponents say would permit stoned driving or smoking indoors. North Dakotans two years ago approved a medical marijuana system that only just got up and running this week, and many legalization advocates have been frustrated by what they saw as the slow pace to implementation.
The chance this measure could pass – and some polls suggest it might – has alarmed the state’s political establishment because it would take effect in 30 days.
“It’s a wide-open, no-holds-barred, no-limits on anything, no-oversight, poorly written measure,” said Norm Robinson, campaign manager for North Dakotans Against the Legalization of Recreational Marijuana.
The measure’s backers say they’re comfortable the proposal’s language accomplishes their goals of broad legalization with little government intervention. Defense attorneys across the state are already asking judges to postpone sentencing in marijuana-related cases, arguing their clients will get their records expunged automatically if the measure passes.
