On state question 777, the editorial board of SoonerPolitics.org has been rather disappointed in the failures of both camps. The pro side has not addressed the concerns of metro area voters whose only direct concern is safe drinking water. The con side has developed narratives of apocalyptic consequences which the plain language of the initiative come nowhere near resembling.
On 780& 792, we have two strong political forces divided. The "moral majority" Republicans oppose any softening of our prohibition policies. The "liberty" Republicans believe personal consumption is a personal decision and govt.should focus only on threats to public safety and child exploitation. SQ780 does not legalize possession, but does reduce it to a misdemeanor (unless distribution charges are filed).
