Court wrestles with pot decision

Idaho Mountain Express

Calling it "the most important thing I've done in my life so far," marijuana advocate Ryan Davidson argued Friday before the Idaho Supreme Court in Boise that the Sun Valley city clerk violated the law when she declined to process his organization's petition to allow citizens to vote on legalizing marijuana in Sun Valley.

"Our Constitution says we can propose and enact any initiative," said Davidson, head of a group called The Liberty Lobby of Idaho. "Initiatives often force cities to consider controversial issues."

Countering that argument was Sun Valley Assistant City Attorney Adam King, who said the petition had been "beyond the scope of the initiative process," and the city was justified in rejecting it.
