Voters Ease Marijuana Laws in 2 States,
but Legal Questions Remain
Prop. 37: Genetic food labels defeated in California
Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize recreational marijuana
Medical marijuana was also legalized in Massachusetts, underlining long-running trends in public opinion toward more permissive attitudes on drugs.
In Maine, Maryland, and Washington, for the first time in the history of the United States the voters, not judges or a legislature, legalized gay marriage.
In Minnesota, voters defeated an anti-gay marriage measure -- an extremely rare victory up to now.

Prop. 30: California will avoid deep spending cuts to public schools and universities with tax increase
Prop. 30 will increase personal income tax for seven years on Californians earning more than $250,000. It would be implemented retroactively, starting Jan. 1, 2012.
Those earning between $250,000 and $300,000 will pay 1 percent more. People making between $300,000 and $500,000 will pay 2 percent more and people making more than $500,000 will pay 3 percent more in taxes.
Sales tax will rise by 1/4 of a cent for four years starting in 2013. That's roughly one cent on a $4 latte or 25 cents on $100.

A measure that would have required most foods made with genetically engineered ingredients to be labeled in California lost early Wednesday.
Supporters of Proposition 37 said consumers have a right to know whether food has been genetically altered, particularly when the long-term health impacts are unclear.
Opponents argued that the labels would stigmatize foods that are scientifically proven to be safe.
With its 18 electoral votes, Ohio was a must-win —
and in this state, the president's bailout of the auto industry paid off. In the north, the auto industry bailout has driven the unemployment rate below the national average, and voters are rewarding the president. This more than compensated for voters in the southern part of the state, who are more socially and religiously conservative, and who have been hit hard economically, particularly in the coal industry.
As it turned out, the president did not need Virginia's 13 electoral votes — but he won them anyway. Romney had polled ahead of Obama for the latter part of the campaign, but that support softened in the days before the election. The fight here was between fast-growing northern Virginia, a Washington, D.C. suburb with young urbanites who vote Democratic, versus much of the rest of the state: rural pro-gun conservative.
With its 29 electoral votes, Florida was an important state for both candidates. Despite its diverse population, and its history of election controversy,
Florida went for Obama in 2012.
