t post about various efforts for statewide reform measures for the 2022 ballot, there has been great progress. Here’s an overview with the latest updates:
Colorado NORML is urging voters to decide against Initiative #25, opining that excessive taxation on regulated marijuana products will drive consumers back to the illicit market. “This Ballot Initiative is an unnecessary tax burden,” Colorado NORML states in an action alert.
Here’s a breakdown of current statewide, citizen-initiated efforts so far.
The suit claimed that the initiative language was unconstitutional because it earmarked a portion of tax revenues from retail marijuana sales.
The measure decreases the personal cultivation limit from four mature plants per adult and eight mature plants per household as originally approved by voters, to two mature plants per adult and four mature plants per household.
As a result, Measure 26 will go into effect on July 1, 2021, as voters intended.
Provisions legalizing marijuana possession, use, and personal cultivation take immediate effect.
A1897 / S2535 would remove penalties for the possession of up to six ounces of marijuana and the distribution of up to one ounce.
