Pot activists make 2nd attempt for CO ballot

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:, , ,

Marijuana legalization activists in Colorado say they won’t fall short this time making the statewide ballot.

The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol planned to turn in some 12,000 petition signatures on Friday to state officials. That may give the activists more than they need to get a legalization question on Colorado ballot this fall.

Two weeks ago, the pot activists were told they were short about 2,500 valid signatures.

The pot activists will find out by the end of the month whether their second effort is enough.

Marijuana legalization is already headed to the ballot this fall in Washington state. Colorado voters considered but rejected a pot legalization measure in 2006.
