Same-Sex Marriage, Pot Headline Ballot Referendums [VIDEO]
On the bottom half of ballots all across the country – below the Presidential, Congressional and local elections – were measures impacting everything from Americans’ health, to their finances, to their love lives.
FOX News Radio’s Kirstin McNary has a rundown on some of the other stuff put to a vote Tuesday:
Maryland and Maine became the first states to legalize same-sex marriage with a public vote, instead of just through their legislatures. Alabama, Montana and Wyoming voters expressed their distaste for healthcare reform, all passing measures that symbolically declare no one can be forced to buy health insurance – but they won’t trump Federal law. Florida voters defeated a similar constitutional amendment.
Medical marijuana was defeated in Arkansas, but approved in Massachusetts. And the legalization of pot – minus the “medical” qualifier – got the green light in Colorado and Washington, but was defeated in Oregon.
Virginia voters approved an amendment to their Constitution limiting eminent domain – basically the government’s ability to seize private property for public use. The measure limits that power so that the state government can’t give the property to a private entity, even if it’s in order to increase jobs, boost tax revenue or economic development.
Florida Amendment 6, to ban public funding of abortion – which the state doesn’t actually do – failed.
