An ordinance that would have made enforcement of marijuana possession laws the lowest priority crime on the docket for police officers in Portland, Maine, failed to gain the needed signatures by the Friday deadline for a slot on the November ballot. WCSH6 TV in Portland reported that “the law would have requested officers not to inquire about possession of marijuana or marijuana paraphernalia of any one over age 21, unless they were in the act of committing a violent crime or were convicted of a violent crime.” The group, “Sensible Portland,” fell short when a number of the signatures were declared invalid. The group said they would reorganize and keep the pressure  on city officials.
