Will medical marijuana initiatives pass in Arizona, Oregon and South Dakota?

Though I have been paying closest attention to California's Proposition 19, which would legalize recreational marijuana use in that state, there are notable medical marijuana initiatives in three other states worth watching this election season.  As highlighted on this Just Say Now page, voters in Arizona, Oregon and South Dakota will all be considering medical marijuana initiatives.  Here are links to more information about these state initiatives, via the pro medical marijuana webpages supporting them:

California's Proposition 19 has been at the center the national marijuana prohibition debate in recent weeks and months, and I am not sure how that broader debate might impact voting in these other states.  My sense is that medical marijuana initiatives have been mostly successful in recent years, but 2010 is a unique election season for a host of reasons.  Nevertheless, I would make an educated guess that a majority (if not all) of these other marijuana initiatives win passage this year.

A poll on whether likely voters would favor legalizing marijuana rather than merely medical marijuana, in Colorado, taken over the weekened in connection with election related polls showed a 46-43 margin in favor of legalizing it.

Given that this is a conservative leaning off year election, that suggests that support might be even higher among general election voters in Presidential election years.

When we say to legalize the use of medical marijuana is really the very hard decision to make. This will be the window of so many kind of crimes that will go with the known illegal drugs. But to the next view which this could be use as a medical medicine also. That will help save human life too. So crucial and difficult.

In my opinion. I will not agree if marijuana will be legalize. Since then this drug is already rampant. Moreover when this will be legalize. lot of innocent teens will be curious to this thing. This will ruin their future. This will affect the entire nation as well as even children. This is a big NO NO.
