Colorado’s ballot initiative to legalize marijuana possession is billed by one leading local advocate as “a grassroots effort here on the ground,” but an examination of contributions to the campaign tell a far different story.
After some drama last week – Colorado’s election ballot is finally set. Of the three statewide questions facing voters – one is largely a symbolic measure, another was referred by the legislature and the third seeks to legalize possession of small amounts of marijuana.
The campaign to legalize marijuana is suing to prevent the state from printing the blue book as it’s currently written. The blue book is written as an impartial guide for voters, but last week lawmakers stripped some of the key arguments in favor of legalizing marijuana.
