California and Weed | Anti/LAist
We had a very big story on LAist, that got a lot of people excited about the potential for a new system that would legalize weed for all adults to be put on the ballot this November. The excitement was fueled with the hope of many that the nearly 700,000 signatures by Sept. 5, 2008 appeared very likely. The only question that was at the front of everyone's mind was, "WHERE DO I SIGN?!"

In an email exchange with the author of the proponent, he spelled things out, and perhaps cleared up some of the questions.

Dear LAist, My apologies for the delay in getting back to you, and thank you again for your interest in the Inalienable Rights Enforcement (IRE) Initiative. In order to answer your questions, I will start by giving some background to the initiative.
