I-502: Pot initiative is oxymoronic

Please stop referring to the Nov. 6 ballot measure as a “pot initiative.” Same with “marijuana initiative.”

Pot is more likely associated with apathy, lack of motivation and in some cases indolence. So to connect it to the term “initiative” is at best misleading and could be an example of media bias.
