Cannabis Ballot Initiative Released for Public Comment
Contact: Legalize 2012 Campaign
The Legalize2012.com Campaign has released draft language for its ballot
initiative that is being proposed for the November 2012 ballot. You can
read it online:
The Legalize2012.com Initiative removes all criminal penalties for cannabis
use in Colorado and sets up an independent commission to implement the law.
This is a true citizen’s ballot initiative, so all comments are welcome and
will be incorporated as they can to further the goals of the amendment.
Public Comments Requested: The ballot initiative will be open for public
comments until Monday, Jan. 16, 2012.
Give your feedback by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or post your comments here.
Know Your Ballot Initiatives: Legalize2012.com is NOT Initiative 30, which
is supported by a different group. The Legalize2012.com amendment removes
all criminal penalties and gives control of cannabis to the people. I30
gives more control to the police. Read more about the two campaigns on our
website. Be prepared to educate yourself and other voters who may be
confused by the two campaigns. Read a comparison here:
Timeframe: This ballot initiative will be filed with the Secretary of State
and have more hearings on the language of it until it is finalized and a
ballot title is set. That process should take 2 to 4 weeks. Then the ballot
initiative can be printed and circulated for signatures, if sufficient
funds are raised.
