Cottleville, Missouri Votes No on Medical Marijuana

April 7, 2010

The medical marijuana votes have been tallied in the Missouri town of Cottleville, and the results are not favorable. Both proposals were defeated by 9 votes (keep in mind, they were not legally binding proposals; they were simply symbolic).

Proposition C asked town voters if they would support medical marijuana legislation currently working its way through the Missouri Legislature (HB 1670):

The vote totals:
No – 199
Yes – 190

Proposition V asked town voters if they wanted to put HB 1670 on the November ballot:
The vote totals:
No – 199
Yes – 190

When asked how he felt about the defeat, the mayor hinted that this is not the end of the medical marijuana conversation in Missouri. “Getting the law passed is a process and this is just one step along the way,” said Cottleville Mayor Don Yarber, who requested the vote. Mayor Yarber will be a guest speaker at Missouri NORML’s Spring Conference this Saturday.
