Legalize Marijuana Activists Trying To Get Initiative On Nov. Ballot

DENVER (CBS4)– Activists are trying to get a marijuana legalization initiative on the November ballot.

Friday afternoon members of the campaign Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol turned in another 14,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office.

Two weeks ago, the organization was informed they were about 2,500 signatures short.

“We are extremely confident we have far more signatures than needed to place this initiative on the ballot and allow Coloradans the opportunity in November to end marijuana prohibition in Colorado,” said Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol spokeswoman Betty Aldworth.

The initiative asks voters whether to make small amounts of pot legal for adults 21 and over.

The Secretary of State’s office expects to let the organization know if they have enough signatures by the end of the month.

    If it goes through, it’s going to go down just like it did in Colorado — the attorney general will make all sorts of threats claiming the state will lose all sorts of federal funding if it goes through. In theory it’s a nice idea, but it won’t ever work. Unfortunate, because even once you have a doctors prescription in Colorado, you need to send in the ‘scrip and a fee to the state, and face a many-month long backlog… needless to say, I got the ‘scrip, but didn’t end up with the actual card

    Edit: my bad, I meant as it did in California * Totally not stoned right now, either.
