Medical marijuana info pamplets to be sent to Guam voters

8:19 pm on 30 September 2014

The Guam Election Commission will be posting out around 50,000 information pamphlets on the upcoming medical marijuana vote this Friday.

In November voters will go to the polls not only to elect their political representatives, but to decide whether the island should allow marijuana for medical use or not.

The GEC Executive Director Maria Pangelinan says in preparation for this, the commission is printing material showcasing both the Senate arguments for and against the move.

Ms Pangelinan says no one will have the excuse of being ill-informed.

"We're also putting it on our website and we're supposed to also deliver to all three branches of government, to the Mayors' Council of Guam that will have it available in each mayor's office across the island, all 19 offices and we're supposed to deliver it to the library."

Registered voters will also be given an information card with their ballott papers on the day of the vote.
