medical marijuana ballot initiative.”> medical marijuana ballot initiative.”> medical marijuana ballot initiative.”> medical marijuana ballot initiative.”> I signed the petition for the medical marijuana ballot initiative. Mostly because I felt pity for the harried guy shuffling around my neighborhood meeting door after door. Partly because I wanted to see who else on my block had signed it. But only somewhat because I wanted to see the initiative on the ballot. The legislative process works better when we can hold our own representative accountable in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. With the recent proliferation of ballot initiatives, not only does money now rule our legislative process even more than it did before, but issue-backers now raise funds to collect signatures only to pull the rug out from all those voters with a “compromise” hashed out in a back room, behind a closed door in the Capitol.
