Press reports on pot proposition progress in California and Washington

This morning's news wire has these two pieces suggesting progress on efforts to have marijuana initiatives on the ballot in two states:

  • From California here, "CA medical marijuana backers ready ballot measure."

  • From Washington here, "Marijuana legalization initiative to turn signatures next week"

I believe Colorado and perhaps a few other western states are likely to have a major pot proposition on the ballot in 2012, and how these initiative far will be a huge story in the enduring debate on not just the drug war, but the balance of federal and state powers in drug policy and criminal justice enforcement.
