Two Cottleville City Medical Marijuana Questions were on the April 6, 2010 ballot in the city of Cottleville which is in St. Charles County.

Both measures were defeated by the same totals.

  • YES 190 (48.84%)
  • NO 199 (51.16%)Defeatedd[1]

The mayor, who supported the measure, said he was hoping the measure would have passed, but is done with the issue and is happy the state legislatures know their opinions on the matter. He also noted that because so many voted in favor, there still is wide interest in the issue and people are aware of larger issues in their community. Other residents thought it was the wrong area to introduce the idea of medical marijuana and should remain at the state level.[2]

These measures asked city voters if they wanted to agree with the state legislation bill that would make the use of medical marijuana legal. The second measure specified if they agreed with bringing the vote to a state wide election in November.[3] The Mayor of the city was pushing for this measure because he felt it would help cancer patients and other cities in the area have also shown interest in the measure.[4]
