Yesterday, Colorado activists campaigning to place a constitutional amendment on the 2012 ballot that would legalize “limited possession of marijuana for recreational use” turned in 160,000 signatures. The campaigners only need 86,000 valid signatures to place the amendment on the ballot. If approved, “the initiative would put a proposed constitutional amendment before voters to legalize possession of up to an ounce of marijuana for any purpose by people 21 or older. People would also be able to grow up to six plants in their homes.”
