Did U.S. territory Guam just legalize medical marijuana? It looks to be headed that way, based on preliminary results being reported by Guam Pacific Daily News.
The news outlet shows about 56.4 percent of voters approving medical marijuana initiative Proposal 14A with 56 out of 58 precincts reporting. According to the newspaper, 18,674 voted yes and 14,453 voted no. Two precincts have yet to be counted.
If the numbers hold — and a number of other media outlets are already calling it a win — Guam will become the first U.S. territory to legalize medical marijuana.
