The Great Pot State of Colorado just never stops when it comes to talking about weed. Sure us pot smokers would rather see marijuana legalized so we don’t have to go to the doctor and deal with the CDPHE anymore, but “Regulate Marijuana like Alcohol” is not the answer. Mason Tvert’s Colorado Pot Clown and Activist has gathered 160,000 signatures from registered Colorado voters to get Initiative 30 on the ballot.
Initiative 30 – Regulate Marijuana like Alcohol got it’s signatures by promoting the initiative as ‘legalization’, which it is not. For false advertising the prospect of legalization, High Country Caregiver does not support the initiative. The 3 main reasons for not supporting initiative 30 the false legalization measure are:
It may seem innocent on the surface, but if passed, Initiative 30, Colorado’s false legalization measure would in fact further prohibition in Colorado for an additional 10 years. The measure gives full control of cannabis to the Colorado Department of Revenue, an agency already burdened with regulating medical marijuana, and allows the DOR to set marijuana regulations in the future, up until 2014. Regulate marijuana like alcohol makes no sense at all, by definition, marijuana is not an intoxicating substance, and has medical benefit, unlike alcohol. A similar measure to this one which will be on the 2012 ballot failed in California in 2010 because all of the marijuana growers and medical marijuana businesses voted against it. It’s estimated in Norther California marijuana grow counties like Trinity County and Mendocino County, that 100,000 voters voted it down.
Initiative 30 – Regulate Marijuana like Alcohol 2012 Colorado must fail. By definition alone the measure is faulty. Don’t be fooled fellow pot heads, Mason Tvert is not helping to legalize cannabis, but rather further prohibition.
