Initiative and Freemarket Capitalism Stumped

Maine faced a difficult task in verifying signatures on five petitions.

There is an initiative to revamp Maine's existing medical marijuana law to require the state Department of Health and Human Services to issue cards to patiens who qualify to posses the marijuana and help establish nonprofit dispensaries. It would also change the conditions for which medical marijuana is permitted.

The one allowing citizens of Maine to purchase health insurance from out-of-state companies was meant to allow more choices, making Maine insurance companies more subject to market competition. The Main Secretary of State, Matthew Dunlap, disqualified all 63,690 signatures because the six page description of the initiative was presented out of sequence for those reading it.
