Pot Campaign Comes To Hailey

Shelly Calhoun, of Twin Falls, smiles while Dean Holler adds his name to a petition to legalize marijuana for medical purposes. A group calling themselves "Compassionate Idaho" set up a table and volunteers waved signs at passing traffic in Hailey Sunday afternoon in hopes of steering attention to their cause. Meanwhile, group leader Sarah Caldwell provided literature and sold buttons and stickers from NORML, a national nonprofit lobbying organization working to legalize marijuana, stop arrests of smokers and provide educational and legal support. Caldwell, from Boise, said 50,000 signatures are needed by April to get an initiative on the 2012 ballot. Photo by David N. Seelig
