Assisted Suicide, Marijuana Triumph at Polls
Tuesday was more than Trump. State ballot measures offered insight into the changing views of red and blue America. Colorado became the seventh state to allow assisted suicide, while Georgia voters rejected a measure to allow the state to take over failing schools — a fight that united teachers’ unions on the left and anti-big-government activists on the right. California, Massachusetts, Nevada and Maine voted to legalize recreational marijuana, and several more states allowed medicinal pot — signs, activists say, that the legal weed movement is ready to go national.
