DENVER (AP) – Another measure to legalize marijuana could be headed to Colorado ballots this fall.

Pot activists are headed to the state title board Wednesday for permission to start gathering signatures for a ballot measure to make the drug legal. It’s a more liberal proposal than the “Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol” measure currently awaiting clearance for inclusion on ballots.

The measure under discussion Wednesday would not limit the amount of marijuana a person could have, nor would it set an age limit for possession. The second version also states that marijuana would not be taxed, unlike the rival proposal.

The second proposal comes from activists who argue the first proposal is too heavy-handed. Additional pot proposals are possible because of disagreements within the marijuana activism community.
