Guam - It's been a week since the Guam Election Commission voted to not place the medicinal marijuana measure on this year's general election ballot. The measure was submitted as a legislative submission by way of Bill 215 authored by Senators Tina Muna Barnes and Aline Yamashita. It was earlier this week when Yamashita told KUAM that several options were being looked at with the mostly likely scenario being to seek a declaratory judgment with the court. No official decision has been made just yet. In the meantime, both senators are still putting together the arguments in favor of the measure as required by the rules of a legislative submission. The previous deadline to submit to the speaker was last week. Senator Dennis Rodriguez Jr. who was tasked with writing the argument against Bill 215 says he had his position papers ready but didn't submit them because of the GEC's decision. Had the measure gone through and based on legislative submission requirements, arguments were due 45 days to the GEC after the referendum's submission, which was transmitted to the GEC on February 4.
