Calif. Votes 'No' to Pot, Okla. Says 'No' to Sharia

Ad Feedback

Voters in three states made their voices heard in a string of key ballot initiatives on Tuesday.

In California, voters decided not to legalize marijuana. Proposition 19 would have legalized pot for recreational use making the Golden State the first state in the country to do so.

Voters in Colorado defeated an anti-abortion personhood admendment to their state constitution. Amendment 62 would have changed the state constitution to declare that a person is a person from "the moment of biological beginning." The measure essentially would have outlawed abortions in the Rocky Mountain State.

And Oklahoma became the first state in the nation to ban Islamic Sharia law. State Question 755 passed with 70 percent of the vote. The measure amends the Oklahoma state constitution to forbid courts to consider sharia law in reaching their decisions.
