The proposal, though it unfortunately would not be legally binding (it’s more of a public opinion poll), would ask voters whether they support decriminalizing the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis for adults. Although the measure’s approval wouldn’t technically change the law, a strong vote in favor of the proposal would go a long way in convincing lawmakers that it’s the right time to reform the county and state’s cannabis policies.
