Colorado Statewide Marijuana Legalization Initiative begins

SAFER, Safer Alternative For Enjoyable Recreation began their petition drive
to place a statewide marijuana legalization initiative on the November ballot.

The law, if passed would allow adults over the age of 21 to possess
up to an ounce of marijuana in cities and towns where there is no local ordinance that expressly forbids possession within their borders. Home rule cities and towns that currently operate under state law, with respect to marijuana, would be free to pass local ordinances restricting possession. Federal law would also apply, though federal intervention in small-scale possession cases is rare.
