Last November, voters in Colorado and Washington legalized marijuana. The off-year election tomorrow is not as exciting, except if you live in Portland, Maine, Colorado and Michigan, where important pro-pot initiatives are on the ballot.

A record high number of Americans now think marijuana should be legalized. According to the latest Gallup poll, the spread is 58% for and 39% against.
Swiss citizens can now carry up to 10 grams of marijuana without fear of arrest. Switzerland is the fourth European country to decriminalize pot.
'Potland' is usually reserved for Oregon's largest city, but if voters in Portland, Maine pass a ballot to legalize marijuana on Nov. 5, they can share the stony title.
