Voters in Colorado have the opportunity to make history this coming November. On the ballot: the proposition to legalize marijuana for recreational use. If passed, Colorado adults will be legally able to possess small amounts of cannabis for personal use, thereby allowing law enforcement to concentrate on more serious issues, and crime. The passing of this proposition could also pave the way for other states to follow suit if Colorado is able to demonstrate that legalization to this degree does no harm for communities.
Of course, it must pass first. This is the time for proponents of cannabis in Colorado to speak out for legalization and make your case. Whether you use for pleasure or medicinal reasons, this vote affects you regardless of where you live.
